Approaching Monday Natural Disaster

For your start of the week, we thought we would share an approaching Monday Natural Disaster…assuming you think of a Typhoon.

Several people have sent us a meme floating around on social media depicting four “natural disasters.” The upper right corner is a Typhoon and the lower right corner is a Siberian Husky. As the various fans have noted, in our case, the two images go together quite well.

Would I ever cause trouble?

For those of you who don’t know (or remember), Typhoon came to us named Ty, but Hu-Dad likes to use two syllable names because they are easier to communicate with a canine. He was trying out various combinations when a reader suggested the winning solution. Little did we know how much we were tempting fate by naming a dog after a natural disaster, but let’s say it’s quite fitting (even if he is a cute natural disaster).

Just don't try to brush me.

    Typhoon looks well filled out, even with his fluffy coat.

    It’s funny how they sometimes grow into the names we give them. Zoom Zoom big guy.

    he knows he needs a good brushing! but hey…

    and you know Hu Dad… he’s ‘above’ that kind of nonsense of course.
    his highness the great Typhooney!

    AAWW Hu-Dad-Typhoon is a cutie although an untouchable one! I assume as long as you stay away from his ZOOMIES and don’t TRY and brush him-all is well?

A Whiff of Wildlife

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
