Offsides Snooter On The Play

Our instant replay (aka, Hu-Dad’s photograph), shows we have an offsides snooter on the play.

offsides snooter on the play

We know you will be shocked to hear a squirrel was outside our fence. And even further shocked to discover Roscoe was fixated on the squirrel. But are you surprised to discover that our referee called an offsides snooter on the play? Sorry, Roscoe, but our instant replay (aka, Hu-Dad’s photograph) proves the infraction. That will require an additional five yards from the squirrel.

    Roscoe has the MOST INTENT look on his face! He’s like -“Let me get my paws(or jaws) on that squirrel”!!!

    That Squirrel was teasing Roscoe…sure of it. My 2 Huskies catch the Rodents with fluffy Tails too often. Better the Shooters be outside the Fence, than the entire fur missile! Gotta give Roscoe points for not blinking!

    he obviously gets points for keeping his eye on the ball.
    I mean the squirrel.

    Roscoe points out the angle of the camera clearly is biased and makes it “appear” that there is a shooter infraction! Retake requested !!
    Roscoe you are the cutest thing !

      Snooter! Not shooter or maybe both

    Roscoe says the referee needs glasses! No snoiter offsides here!
