Hayseed Roscoe

We Siberian Huskies can pretend to be quite the sophisticated breed when we want to, but Hayseed Roscoe shows our simple roots.

We were sprawled in the yard enjoying the sun and marsh breezes when Roscoe snatched a piece of crabgrass from the yard. He enjoyed chewing on it so much that Hu-Dad was reminded of the simple pleasure of chewing on a blade of grass.

Just a good ol' country Sibe,
Just a good ol’ country Sibe,

And if you haven’t enjoyed the simple pleasures of chewing on some grass while the breeze rustles over you, get out of the city and have some fun. Or be Typhoon and roll your eyes at these things.

Oh, puh-leeze!
Oh, puh-leeze!

    It’s obvious that Roscoe is one happy kid; good balance for the ever serious Typhoon.

      Yes, it’s fun to watch Roscoe entice Typhoon into games. Roscoe is so persistent that the Little Prince can’t help but just play.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
