Space Wars

This story isn’t about governments battling for supremacy above our heads in space wars, but about whether canine or human rules under the desk.

What do you mean you expect to put your feet under your desk?

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has many rules about how the humans and other canines are to give him deference. Yesterday’s discussion centered around space wars—not the intergalactic kind but who has the claim over the space under the desk. Silly Hu-Dad believes he should be able to put his feet there, but Typhoon knows it makes the perfect cave for an afternoon nap. It’s so hard being royal and others don’t respect your obvious superiority.

Halloween Costumes

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
