Those Ears

Roscoe and those ears. He uses them to express his opinions and in his best imitation of a dog who listens (more or less).

I hear you loud and clear - those ears
I hear you loud and clear

Roscoe has a quite expressive face, but those ears add accents to every message. He has the alert and paying attention face as seen above, but it ranges to the tired “Malamute” ears that droop to the sides of his head when he is sleepy. For today, though, we give you the perky ears.

    Roscoe is rather unique. (I wonder if his coat is as low maintenance as it appears.) He’s a sweetie.

      It’s very low maintenance! A little fluff around the haunches is about all.

    In our house that is the look of – Give me a treat – Please!!

    Definitely on alert !! I would guess being a Sibe he is not really listening ðŸĪŠðŸ•

    Oh Roscoe-I just LOVE that face and those ears. I hope next time the Hu-Dad can do a picture of the sleepy down ears!
