A Not So Royal Prince

Some warm sunshine, cool grass, and marsh breezes make for a perfect napping combination and a not so royal prince.

Yesterday’s weather was perfect for a nap in the yard and our own Little Prince made himself comfortable. Unfortunately for him, pests were around.

Did I hear a camera shutter click?

Yes, the Hu-Dad might have captured a few photographs of His Highness in a not so royal prince mode. Don’t worry—His Surliness knew how to respond.

Unfortunately for a napping Little Prince, the Hu-Dad wasn’t the only pest in the yard.

Hi, Big Bro. Are you trying to nap?

    Typhoon doesn’t look too royal in those positions and I think he is angry at you Hu-Dad with the constant click click of the camera. But just think Typhoon-you are a STAR!!

      Typhoon says pshaw. He isn’t a star. At least not an ordinary one. He’s a SUPERstar. A MEGAstar. The world revolves around him.

      And the sooner the world figures that out and complies, his life will be so much simpler.

    Why is it a camera always has to come out and ruin a nice peaceful sleep? Always happens in the daily life of a Husky.
