Growing Bromance

The growing bromance between Typhoon and Roscoe, a most unlikely pair, continues to amuse us as they explore the boundaries of Sibe Quentin together.

What are you doing there, big bro?

What are you doing there, big bro?

We’ve long described how Landon adores his big brother Frankie and follows him about the yard. Frankie is infinitely patient and rarely reacts to anything, so it’s easy for others to get along with him (Typhoon and Roscoe included). Typhoon, however, was born a curmudgeon and tends to have little patience with others.

That's my hole i dug. Don't touch it.

That’s my hole I dug. Don’t touch it.

And, yet, Roscoe enjoys hanging around Typhoon and ignores his grumbling (while being properly respectful of the many boundaries of the Little Prince). The end result is a big brother who is still a curmudgeon, but a little bro who enjoys hanging around the grumpster.

    Roscoe seems to enjoy every minute of his new life with the herd.

    Aw Roscoe sees a warm spot in the haughty one’s heart ❤️

    Roscoe knows that even the grumpiest grumps need a best friend too!

    Maybe Roscoe found the “soft spot” in the heart of the Little Prince.

    It warms my heart that Roscoe SO loves his big bro Typhoon and follows him around Sibe Quentin BUT respects the “sometimes grouchy” boundaries that the Little Prince has set! Roscoe has found himself a VERY special place to call home!!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
