Busy, Busy

The photographer asked the Little Prince to pose for a couple of pictures, but Typhoon said he was too busy and didn’t have time to model.

I'm busy with so many things to do
I’m busy with so many things to do

As a working breed, we have so many tasks. We have to take the humans walking twice a day (they need the exercise, you know), supervise their food preparation, and remind them to go to bed on time. We also snoozervise the Hu-Dad when he works at his busyness with the clickety-clackety keyboard. On top of all of that, we take on the task of pest control keeping squirrels, rabbits, and moles out of the yard and deer and bear away from our fence. So pardon Typhoon’s serious look, but he didn’t have time to pose today.

    The Little Prince has taken over the BORDER PATROL and he does take his responsibilities very seriously!! Of course with Christmas coming he wants Santa Paws to know he being a good boy!

    With that “serious” expression you can tell he takes his job very serious.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
