Baffled Royalty

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey perfected the look of baffled royalty when Hu-Dad suggested an all-dogs command included him.

Are you talking to me? - baffled royalty
Are you talking to me?

Hu-Dad issued the command to “all dogs” to kennel up. Everypup raced to their crates and curled up inside. Except, of course, for His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey. Hu-Dad looked him in the eyes and said, “That includes you, Little Curmudgeon.” The baffled royalty look you see in today’s photo was the response.

    That look is the same as saying “I don’t need no stinking crate”. Still cute.

    Typhoon says–“I am royalty Hu-Dad and will NOT be ordered to obey”-lol. I bet though you had to hide a chuckle Hu-Dad when he’s up to his tricks?
