A Twig Breaks In The Woods

A quiet afternoon exploring the yard when a twig breaks in the woods. The Little Prince goes on full alert and watches for movement.

Who goes there? - a twig breaks in the woods
Who goes there?

We were enjoying a beautiful, if cold, day in the backyard. Canines were sniffing and Hu-Dad was shivering, but no one was in a hurry. Then, a sound. A twig breaks in the woods. Typhoon searches the shadows for an approaching threat, but nothing is spotted. A few minutes pass and things return to normal. And, no, we have no clue what was out there.

    Typhoon just sent out a. message to the intruder that it was not safe to come any closer or else!🤣🤣🐾🐾
