Taking Things Too Far

Roscoe loves wrestling and playing with his big brother. Sometimes, though, Typhoon thinks the fun and games may be taking things too far.

Until Roscoe came to Chez Herd, Typhoon contentedly played the role of curmudgeonly loner. He followed in the footsteps of his mentor, Queen Natasha the Evil, and eagerly learned from her, but never had a pal.

Roscoe was intrigued with the Little Prince’s grumbly ways, however, and set out to become a best friend. Now they are rarely more than a few feet apart and often found playing games.

Every now and then, Typhoon seems to wonder if maybe Roscoe might be taking things too far, particularly when the wrestling matches go over the top. Like, say, this moment.

    Even loners need a buddy.

    Typhoon is so tolerant of his little brother. Nice to see them getting some playtime in.

    Seeing the two brothers together playing makes me smile. Typhoon and Roscoe are such GREAT buddies but some ear chewing should be off the play card-lol/
