Ears Closed For Business

When the Hu-Dad drones on about behavior and rules, Typhoon’s solution is to mark the ears closed for business.

I can't hear you - ears closed for business
I can’t hear you

Such a peaceful, quiet afternoon. Perfect for relaxing after a busy day of mischief and chaos. Some lesser dogs might notice the Hu-Dad’s mutterings about misbehavior and trouble, but not Typhoon. With his ears closed for business, he isn’t bothered by such nuisances.
