Serious Rooster


Rusty, despite his reputation as the class clown, wants to show that he has a serious side as well.

    We just don’t believe it. That had to just last like one second.

    The fact that he’s even attempting a serious look is clown enough. ya right, serious side. phooey. don’t you just love it when they cross their paws? I always wonder what it means? loki does that pose a lot. i think it means they are comfortable.

    I dunno, he looks just a little smirky to me, like under that serious look is a “I’m gonna show ’em”!

    Looking good, Rusty!

    Love the crossed paws look, Rusty!

    Looks like you use doggy seatbelts? We do. My 4 year old nephew has taken to approaching other people in parking lots to tell them that they should seatbelt their dogs for safety based on watching us seatbelt our dogs. So funny.

    Wooo! Love the look, although I do not think that is my real Rusty… it must be one of the other dogs told to look like him, I want to see my smiling Rusty!
