During yesterday’s post, we made a comment about Typhoon growling at weeds. Based on reader reaction, we decided to explain this further.
We described yesterday how Typhoon can be a wee bit temperamental when it comes to posing for photographs. At the end of the post, we mentioned that our Little Prince was digging weeds out of the yard and growling at them. Based on reader comments, some of you think this is unusual behavior.
So let’s explain this from Typhoon’s perspective. Soft grass feels good under paws. Crabgrass tickles the feety-feet. No one, but no one, is allowed to tickle the Little Prince’s feety-feet. Therefore, crabgrass is evil and must be ripped out of the ground and then told to go away with a clear growl. Now doesn’t this all make perfect sense?

How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.

Typhoon certainly is one of a kind, isn’t he?
And as long as I’m here, when will Sibe Quentin Deux be completed so that the Herd can run loose?
We can’t work on the fence until the siding is complete because of the scaffolding. We hope in a few weeks. Hu-Dad would love to see less racing in the house and more outside. 🙂
An entertaining series of photos along with commentary. Enjoyed it. Touching of feety-feet is a no-no with most dogs.
Made perfect sense yesterday!! Love the hackles standing straight up on his neck in today’s picture and the show of a few teeth too!! You show them weeds!! Lol!! ????????
It makes perfect sense. One of my dogs does the same. He also barks at thunder and it goes away.
I might have to try growling at weeds Typhoon! Sounds like a good thing to do. You truly are a prince!
Hu-Dad I did read yesterday about NOBODY or ANYTHING touching the Little Prince’s feety-feet-lol. I do understand Typhoon-I don’t like things like sand etc touching MY feety feet although I don’t growl at it!!! Do you want to come to my yard and pull up some weeds??? I could use the help since I don’t use any type of poison spray where the dogs are!
We have long been the same way—no chemicals including fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides within the dog zone.
Dear Typhoon, it makes perfect sense. Love your temperamental ways little prince.
Your poor sensitive footsies!! Get that nasty crab grass, Typhoon!!!
