Don’t Break Concentration

Hu-Dad had one of those moments when he tried to get Roscoe’s attention, but the reply was don’t break concentration on something interesting.

Roscoe focuses on something really interesting underground.

Roscoe has become a vole hunting fiend and searches hard for signs of the underground creatures scurrying about. While this series of photographs were being taken, Hu-Dad was calling Roscoe’s name over and over and not getting any reaction.

I know it's under here somewhere.

Hu-Dad finally penetrated the Siberian Selective Deafness (a quite useful breed trait if useful means the ability to ignore humans when it suits), but then he earned an even higher reward—the Siberian look of disdain.

What? Can't you tell I am doing something fun here?

Hope you find something as interesting as a vole this terrific weekend!

    Roscoe, you are too cute. Nothing will break your attention looking for creatures that roam underground. Hope you find something interesting. Thanks for the share. Have a fantastic upcoming weekend.

    Roscoe sure is cute. Huskies are funny that way, (sometimes not so much though.) My kitty comes when I call him more than Juno does.

    It’s amazing what they hear underneath the ground! I loved the look Roscoe gave you when he FINALLY decides to look your way Hu-Dad! Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool all!
