An Eye For Trouble

A simple turn-out to the yard led to a massive wrestling game all because one member of the Herd has an eye for trouble.

We requested a yard break during Hu-Dad’s busy day in his office. And we promised to be good. But then Roscoe shot Typhoon “the look.”

The wrestling match has started and rambles about the yard despite Hu-Dad’s suggestion he has more work to do when we get back inside.

Once order was restored and we marched back to the deck to go inside, we gave the Hu-Dad our usual look of guilt over our poor behavior.

    Hmmm…. those are the sorriest “guilty” looks ever ????????

    That’s “sorry not sorry” if I ever saw it.

    Perfect guilty looks boys! Ears back, tongues out, smiles on! I’d say Roscoe has officially graduated from the “Husky Side Eye” Academy. Takes a while to get it right. Looks as if Roscoe has perfected it and earned a PhD! ????????????

    The last pic says it all…so innocent…not! Lol.
    BTW- I tried to take a look yesterday at Frankencouch. The pics did not download with the page. I tried 3x.
    Stay well all.

    Guilty, but oh so cute!!

    LOOK at those guilty looks(maybe?)-but given the chance-the wrestling match would begin again in a minutes time-although I know Hu-Dad would put a stop to that-PRONTO_lol!!
