A decade ago, we adopted puppy Ty who became named after a natural disaster and lived up to it. Yes, it’s Typhoon’s Tenth Herdaversary.
He might have been less than a year old, but Ty came to us full of bravado. We asked readers to help us think of a two syllable name that started with Ty, and the rest is history. A Typhoon was born and the path of destruction continues to this day.
He loved our long walks. We took a lot of them all while Hu-Dad muttered something about burning energy off a certain juvenile delinquent.
He loved being a part of a big family and all the games that were played. Of course, sometimes others wanted the games to wait a while, but he had secret ways to instigate them.
We loved the youthful energy of the junior team, though Cheoah sometimes wondered why she needed two younger brothers.
Typhoon learned the rules of the house, though he always came up with some unique ways of complying.
And we might have suffered from a wee bit more damage around the house from some youthful exuberance, though Typhoon always maintained total innocence against any accusations.
So, yes, we welcomed young Typhoon to our Herd ten years ago. Who would have thought a decade of mischief would follow?
Happy Tenth Herdaversary, His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey.
