Trust These Faces

For some odd reason we don’t understand, Hu-Dad doesn’t simply believe he can trust these faces when they promise to behave.

Please, Hu-Dad, Please - trust these faces
Please, Hu-Dad, Please

When the landscapers installed our sod in the backyard, they suggested that we should let it take root over three weeks before allowing full-scale Siberian games to commence. To enforce such silliness, Hu-Dad has us on leashes in our own backyard. Last night, Roscoe and Typhoon said they absolutely, positively promised to walk gently if only the leashes were unhooked. Wouldn’t you trust these faces?

    Roscoe looks like he’s promising to behave. Typhoon looks more like he made you “an offer you can’t refuse”

    Sorry boys-I have to side with Hu-Dad on this issue. Although your faces are VERY sweet and innocent looking-I know what would happen without you guys being on a leash!
