Decisions, Decisions

On a warm afternoon, Typhoon is torn between the lure of air conditioned comfort inside or freshly cut grass outside the house.

Inside or outside? - Decisions, Decisions
Inside or outside?

You might think our lives are soft and easy, but we face tough decisions every day. Yesterday, for example, Typhoon struggled with his choices. He could go inside and curl up on his air-conditioning vent for cool Siberian air. Or he could go outside and roll in the fresh cut grass in the backyard. Which choice did he make?

You might be surprised to discover he chose outside. He’s a huge fan of napping in the grass. Well, that, and Hu-Dad urged him to go inside so, of course, he did the opposite.

    Anything similar to the tree of life growing on your backyard, or do they prefer the covered patio for shade?

    Ty will only go in when he gets to toasty outside and his tongue is hanging out just as our boy does.

    Hu-Dad-before I read the whole page I was going to say outside too! Especially IF Typhoon can find a fairly shady spot!!!! I hope he had a nice nap!

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.
