Name Calling

February 21, 2023 |

Humans are so silly. They kept repeating themselves over and over. Something about Roscoe, come inside. Roscoe, we really mean now. Roscoe, we know you can hear us. Clearly, Roscoe is busy and can’t be bothered with such things.

Things We Shouldn’t Discuss

February 19, 2023 |

His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey didn’t feel great for a couple days. These things, unfortunately, happen from time to time. He has a wide range of digestive issues and is on a very strict diet and a series of medications. Unfortunately, he ate something he shouldn’t have. The only question is who fault it was.

Longer story today, so you must click for the details.

Landon of the Jungle

February 18, 2023 |

You might think our backyard is safe, but stealthy creatures live in these woods. We aren’t talking bears, coyotes, bobcats, snakes, or even skunks. No, our scariest creature can sneak up upon you with uncanny silence. Well, as long as you don’t count the bouncing, crashing, and wooing.

Sure Sign of Spring

February 17, 2023 |

We know it’s too early, but it’s been hard not to develop spring fever this week. The sun has been shining. Temperatures warmed. Bushes and trees sprouted new buds. Pollen tickled the noses. All have enticed the Little Prince into the yard to take a nap in one his usual sleeping positions. This might damage the Royal image, but Typhoon doesn’t care.

Serious About Avoiding Rain

February 16, 2023 |

As the senior most member of The Herd, Frankie Suave claims certain rights. His top priority is that the chaos of the youngsters doesn’t involve him. They are smart enough to follow that rule. His second priority, though, is not to get wet, even when he must conduct outdoor business. Mother Nature is far less cooperative. In today’s photo, business is complete and he is returning to his comfy, warm bed.

That Looks Concerning

February 14, 2023 |

Roscoe’s bestest pal ever is his brother, Typhoon. Unfortunately, that means Roscoe often gets pulled into whatever mischief making the Little Prince is doing. Every now and then, Roscoe hesitates when he sees something that looks concerning. Don’t worry, though, he always caves and joins right in.

Typhoon Focus

February 12, 2023 |

Hu-Dad took advantage of some warmer, drier weather to sit on the patio and take photos of us. Great plan, except sitting on the patio draws our attention. Typhoon asked, “Have you fallen and can’t get up?”

The Tongue

February 11, 2023 |

A racer’s body. The strong legs. Firm paws. Sleek muscularity. Focused eyes. Aerodynamic coat. Proper tongue placement. At least according to Roscoe.

Boom Boom Shout Out

February 10, 2023 |

Landon is a multi-talented goofball. He races around the yard in a flash of Siberian fur. He turns his legs into springs to bounce kangaroo style. And he can keep up a running commentary with his never-ending vocalizations. In today’s photo, he’s shouting a hearty hello to the Hu-Dad as he rounds a corner.

Misjudged Distance

February 9, 2023 |

Typhoon quietly snuffed the grass on the hunt for hidden morsels (e.g., rabbit pellets, grub, other tasty treats). Roscoe ran zoomies at top speed in widening circles. Unfortunately, Roscoe suffered from a misjudged distance needed to brake. And Hu-Dad snapped the photo. On the bright side, the only repercussion was a Little Prince in hot pursuit of his brother, which is probably what Roscoe wanted in the first place.

A Tennis Fault

February 7, 2023 |

Hu-Dad sits at his desk for hours doing his busyness. To counteract the negative effects, he does many exercises including rolling a tennis ball under his feet. He says it’s a great activity to maintain flexibility, but his tennis ball disappears at the oddest times. We don’t have any suspects, but will keep a close eye out for the thief.

The Head Tilt

February 5, 2023 |

Frankie’s nickname, Mr. Suave, comes from his calm demeanor, his unflappable ways (well, except for thunder), and his incredible knack for finding ways to get the humans to do his bidding. Hu-Dad wasn’t quite moving fast enough to open the door and let Frankie escape back to his comfy, warm bed, so he threw in the head tilt for emphasis. Yes, it worked.
