Watching The Watcher

October 23, 2022 |

The problem with a bad boy reputation—even if it is only because your bestest bud is a baddie—is that people tend to closely monitor your activities. Roscoe realized that the Hu-Dad was supervising and swears he wasn’t actually causing mischief at that moment. So we had a brief stare down between human and canine as Roscoe was watching the watcher.

A Deal Is A Deal

October 20, 2022 |

When passing other dogs on a trail, Roscoe can be a little challenged to behave well. To help him learn his manners, Hu-Dad treated us if we pass other canines respectfully. Now, when Roscoe passes a dog, he turns to Hu-Dad to request his treat. This has extended to dogs not on the trail, but in their own yards. Yesterday morning, Roscoe argued passing a particularly chubby squirrel in a tree was more or less the same thing, so he said a deal was a deal. Where’s my treat?

The Royal Rules

October 18, 2022 |

In yesterday’s post about Typhoon avoiding a brushing, some reader comments suggested they might have forgotten the Royal Rules. The Little Prince would like to hold a quick refresher course. His furs belong to him. No human shall remove them. Violations shall be slapped with the Royal Scream. If you pluck, a Royal Scream will be issued. If you brush, a Royal Scream will be issued. If you attempt to use the evil blower, the Royal Scream will continue until all such activities cease. In short, back away from the furs. (P.S. – Yes, the Hu-Dad can’t resist.)

When You Realize You’re Being Watched

October 15, 2022 |

We’ve all been there. You’re totally relaxed, doing something silly like sliding your head in the grass with your butt high in the air, when you realize you’re being watched. In this case, the Little Prince spotted the camera aimed in his direction just a moment too late to regain his royal composure.

The Trouble Brothers Stalk Their Prey

October 14, 2022 |

The Trouble Brothers—Typhoon and Roscoe—play endless games together, but their favorite might be stalk their prey. When the Trouble Brothers are together—which is almost always—Hu-Dad never knows what mischief will happen. In this case, he looked out to see them quite focused on something, though it was too small to be seen from a distance.…

Royal Insolence

October 13, 2022 |

Hu-Dad caught Roscoe and Typhoon in the midst of some Siberian games that are apparently not for inside purposes. Something about speed blah blah blah and watching out for people blah blah blah and not crashing into household objects blah blah blah and those things belong outside blah blah blah. Or something like that. The Little Prince did his best to pretend to be listening. How do you think he did?

Roscoe Stalk

October 9, 2022 |

A beautiful fall evening finds Hu-Dad sitting on the patio with his camera taking photos of the dogs. Movement out of the corner of his eye catches his attention. He turns to discover he’s the target. Roscoe approaches with determination in his eyes until… POUNCE! Yes, yes, Hu-Dad was a victim of Roscoe hugs. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday evening.

Table Cleaning Duty

October 8, 2022 |

With a stretch of beautiful fall weather, our evenings are still warm enough for the humans to have dinner outside on the patio without building a fire. No need to worry about everything being properly sanitized post-meal, though, because Roscoe was on the job. He worked until not a single morsel could be found. Proof that we are a working breed.
