Little Prince Denials

Our own local royalty wants everyone to know what a serious canine he is, therefore he issues the usual Little Prince denials about anything else.

His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey is a serious dog. And everyone should take him seriously. At no time should you laugh at his antics because those are all serious. Always.

I'm having fun!
I’m having fun!

The above photo is clearly a fake. No such fun happened. A serious dog wouldn’t do that. Oh, the tabloid press and their mocking of the royals.

A serious royal always
A serious royal prince…like always

    every now and then a certain look he has like that last one …
    kind of takes my breath away. I can picture him in the ancient wilds …
    and I’m in a sleeping bag… and he’s giving that LOOK and it’s like
    all his wolf ancestors are speaking through him…
    “Seriously. I want a treat. and I want it NOW.”
    any sensible reply would have to be… “YES SIR!” xoxo

      He says he wishes all humans understood the appropriate response to all his requests was, “YES SIR!” Sadly, he’s stuck with the mean Hu-Dad.

    The paparazzi is always around when you are a royal! The wonderful life of a prince.

    Prince Typhoon Phooey-no matter how hard you try to be regally serious-some of your photos are TOO ADORABLE!
