Typhoon Mentoring Youngsters

Older, wiser dogs have a duty mentoring youngsters within the Herd, though we question what is being taught when Typhoon is in charge of class.

Imagine Hu-Dad’s concern when he discovers Typhoon deeply involved in teaching the class for the day. Roscoe seems to be practicing his homework while being closely supervised by the teacher.

Roscoe concentrating hard.

So Hu-Dad decided to ask the Little Prince what the lesson of the day was. Typhoon, however, seemed irritated at the interruption in his classroom.

What are you doing out here, Hu-Dad, while I am mentoring youngsters?

So Hu-Dad followed Typhoon’s eyes to Roscoe and then Roscoe’s eyes to the ultimate target. Everything became quite clear.

The object of their attention.

    Mom’n Ebby say: Never thought we’d see the day when TYPHOON became a “mentor”. He certainly has mellowed from what he was two or three years ago. He seems to have also filled out, not as “rangy” as he used to be. Maybe comes with age and maturity? Anyway, Lookin’ real good, Ty.

    and there I thought the little prince was a youngster too!
    and it just occurs to me Hu Dad that most breeds would be barking their heads off!
    the sibe world is clearly amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€

    So wonderful to see Ty looking so filled out. Not to insult the little Prince by suggesting he is getting fat!!! Maybe he is big boned !! Lol ????

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. ย This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
