Can’t Tell This Story

HRH Little Prince Typhoon has warned the Hu-Dad that he can’t tell this story, but we’re telling it anyway.

can't tell this story

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has warned Hu-Dad he can’t tell this story, so… We’re getting to meet our new vet one by one. Hu-Dad warned them that the Little Prince was known for being less than cooperative. The Prince, of course, did everything to prove the Hu-Dad wrong. The vet techs reported that he was very helpful—no wrestling matches during the blood draw, didn’t resist the exam, stood still for vaccinations, voluntarily provided a stool sample. Uh, Hu-Dad asked, can you clarify that last one? The tech’s responsed, “It just popped out.” Royalty must keep everyone guessing.

    Isn’t that so much like a Sibe? Tell them to do something and they do the opposite!

    Our dogs did the same thing at the vet.

    Still giggling! 🙂

    He’s just trying to lull everyone into a sense of complacency – something sibes do well.

    Prince Typhoon Phooey-I know you don’t want your story told BUT it seems that you were the perfect gentleman for your vet exam! BUT I guess you wanted poor Hu-Dad to worry!
