Duty Calls

Duty calls, said Roscoe, when creatures in the woods interrupted Hu-Dad’s and his conversation and required investigation.

Must go handle this - duty calls
Must go handle this

Roscoe was enjoying a good ear scratch during his Hu-Dad time when the twig snapped in the woods. Sure, he wanted nothing more than to continue the cuddle session. But when a twig snaps, a Roscoe investigates. That’s just the way things work. After the deer were told off, Roscoe returned to Hu-Dad for more ear scratching, satisfied in a job well done.

    Hu-Dad-I am glad that worked out for all involved. Roscoe got to investigate and chase the deer and then returned for more ear scratches! Happy boy and happy Hu-Dad!
