Reluctant Volunteer

Hu-Dad says for a working breed, we aren’t asked to do too much, but he says we each must post for photos. Roscoe is today’s reluctant volunteer.

Do I have to? - reluctant volunteer
Do I have to?

The challenge is real. Every day, Hu-Dad expects one of us to do something photographically worthy, but sometimes we are just too tired from all of our work. You know, exercising the humans with two walks a day, holding down the couch, spreading our fur strategically about the house, and testing our Hu-Dad’s agility with our choice of napping spots. Roscoe would sit up for his posing duties, but he is a reluctant volunteer today.
