His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has an important reputation to maintain, but he decided to celebrate Monday with three seconds of cute.

Typhoon is known as the Little Prince because of his haughty ways and indifference to the desires of the humans in the house. But he slipped up in a photo session and actually exhibited three seconds of cute.

Sorry, folks, but that’s all there is. He immediately went back to being his usual ornery self and proved it by digging weeds out of the yard and growling at them.

Be banished ye weed.
Be banished ye weed.

    Hu-Dad-that THREE seconds of cuteness was worth it. It started my Monday off with a smile AND a laugh. Growling at the weeds-HOW SILLY!!!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  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.
