The Unexpected Wrestling Brothers

Games are a part of life at Chez Herd, but we never expected the phrase wrestling brothers to include His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey.

Roscoe appears to be putting a hold on Typhoon.

Typhoon has always played the aloof sibling, thus his plethora of nicknames implying his desire to avoid being touched. We had first thought that Landon would become his buddy, but that never really worked out. They get along fine, but just aren’t really buddies.

So imagine our surprise when the newest and youngest member of The Herd, Roscoe, appears to be building a solid friendship with the aloof one.

The Prince goes on the offensive.

But, most surprisingly, are the games that break out between these two as evidenced by last night’s wrestling match on the porch. Though there still is no question about who comes out on top.

Just a friendly chomp between wrestling brothers.

    Glad Roscoe is making a place for himself!

    Call the WWE! These 2 could show those guys (and gals) a thing or 2. I’m glad to see His Phooey-Ness is taking Roscoe under his paw. Maybe Roscoe can show Typhoon how to tolerate humans, and Typhoon can teach Roscoe the art if aloofness. They are quickly becoming the Dynamic Duo!????????????

    Great to see other huskies wrestling! Thor the Piebald loves to wrestle too and he goes for the full takedowns and bodyslams but its all in fun and no one gets hurt!

    It’s too much fun watching the relationships develop between the different members of the Herd!

    It looks like Roscoe really loves his bro.

    It warms my heart to know that Typhoon and Roscoe are becoming so close as brothers. Of course-the little prince STILL has to show Roscoe he is the TOP dog of the duo! Roscoe REALLY lucked out when Hu-Dad picked him to be part of the Chez Herd! Good job Hu-Dad!
