A Royal Snob

During our morning turnout, the Little Prince again bucked the human requests in his usual fashion as a royal snob.

Why should I have to follow your wishes?
Why should I have to follow your wishes?

The sun was rising, the other dogs were racing down the steps, and His Highness stood firm. No, he didn’t think he should do what the rest of the dogs were doing and he certainly didn’t think he had to do what the human told him. Any attempt of eye contact was met with a nose stuck high in the air.

When will you humans learn who the real boss is?

After some discussions (and negotiations), the Little Prince pranced down the steps and into the yard. His Press Secretary handled all further questions.

No, we do not attempt to explain royal ways.

    Started my Monday off with a laugh! That nose high in the air was TOO funny but I guess we have to go by what the Little Prince decides as well as his Press Secretary!!
