Name Calling

Roscoe wonders why the humans keep name calling him over and over. It’s almost like they want him to do something.

What do you want? - name calling
What do you want?

Humans are so silly. They kept repeating themselves over and over. Something about Roscoe, come inside. Roscoe, we really mean now. Roscoe, we know you can hear us. Clearly, Roscoe is busy and can’t be bothered with such things.

    I think Roscoe is taking cues from Typhoon. It’s a conspiracy. ;-D

    Looks like Roscoe is listening for a good reason to come inside. My Corgi Penny doesnโ€™t even look my way when I call her!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

    Sibes seem to have the most selective hearing of all!! They are just so adorable we can’t get mad at them..

    Roscoe has selective hearing-lol. Many dogs suffer from this and CHOOSE not to pay attention when given a command! BUT look at that face-who could be annoyed with him?
