Sharing Guard Duty

Typhoon demonstrates to his younger brother, Roscoe, how siblings go about sharing guard duty (or any other task).

You watch over there Roscoe while I handle things here.

What older sibling has ever taken advantage of a younger sibling when it comes to chores? Oh, wait, every single one that has ever existed. Typhoon is no exception.

Don't worry, Roscoe, I'm working hard while you are watching the front yard.

The smartest older siblings keep the games quiet so the younger one will continue to fall for the tricks.

Oh, boy, Typhoon says we're done working now and can go inside.

    Our 2 rescue Huskies do the same thing. One watching toward the East while the other checks westward. Always makes you smile!
