No Amount Of Training

We canines like to keep our humans humble. In this case, Roscoe pulled off a year-end that no amount of training by Hu-Dad would have created.

Look what I can do, Hu-Dad - no amount of training
Look what I can do, Hu-Dad

Hu-Dad could offer treats and big rewards and he would never get one of us to hop around on our back legs like a circus clown. A pair of squirrels over our heads during our morning walk, however, had Roscoe bouncing like a pogo stick. Hu-Dad says we are his circus and his clowns.

P.S. – Have a Happy New Year. We will be taking tomorrow off, but will see you Sunday morning!
