Roscoe Eyes – Resistance Is Futile

Each dog in The Herd has his or her own way to resist the Hu-Dad, but our newest member just applies the Roscoe eyes to get his way.

But I'm not ready to come inside yet.
But I’m not ready to come inside yet.

As Roscoe has grown increasingly comfortable living at Chez Herd, he has exhibited some signs of that stubborn Siberian Husky willfulness. For the most part, he does what he is asked when he is asked and his usual resistance comes in a subtle form. He just applies those eyes.

Really? Could you resist the Roscoe eyes?
Really? Could you resist the Roscoe eyes?

And, of course, the Hu-Dad can be persuaded to allow the Siberian games to continue when nothing else is pressing.

Now to go find a sibling for some games.

    He does have a sweet expression. So funny by contrast with Typhoon with his impish ‘who can I roust next’ look. They’re all so special in their own way.

    Stubborn is my favorite Husky trait, when it comes with the beautiful eyes. Roscoe is a beauty!!

    It makes me so happy to know Roscoe is fitting in so well at Chez Herd! As for me(and I know it’s true for Hu-Dad too)I could NEVER resist those beautiful eyes! I know he’s a Daddy’s boy-big time.
