An encounter with law enforcement yesterday left Hu-Dad at the mercy of the Little Prince’s good behavior as the law and the delinquent came nose to nose.
Rains were threatening, so our afternoon walk was a little earlier than normal. We walked to the Oyster Landing, a popular spot for fisherman to launch their boats and oyster hunters to wade into the salt marsh. A Fish and Wildlife Officer was working the area, saw us, and came over quickly to say hi. He was enamored with us and met first Roscoe nose to nose and then turned to Typhoon, who was doing his best “sit pretty.” Hu-Dad watched the officer bend over to say hello and fully expected the Little Prince to launch two muddy paws on the center of the officer’s bullet proof vest.
We need only remind the Hu-Dad that we have even met a Congressman without causing an international incident (albeit before Typhoon), but he didn’t relax until after the officer and Typhoon had exchanged pleasantries. Fortunately, things went well and Typhoon pranced all the way home.
