Roscoe Timeout During A Workday

Hu-Dad was working hard in his study when the furry wonders called for a break, so we had a Roscoe Timeout during the workday.

Hu-Dad, Typhoon told me to tell you to take a break.

Friday was rainy and dreary here, washing away our precious snow and making for lots and lots of mud (you may hear Hu-Dad sighing in the background). Don’t worry, we still have inches of snow on the ground (Hu-Dad sighed again), but it still made for a boring day. We had to hang out with Hu-Dad in his study while he worked. (There it is again – a really big sigh).

We would love to share photos of the next few minutes when Siberian chaos reigned. Unfortunately, it’s dark and gloomy here and Hu-Dad didn’t have his flash and all of the photos came out quite blurry. All we can share is the final photo when the zoomies stopped.

Wow, that was fun, wasn't it, Hu-Dad?

    I know where Roscoe P Coltrane comes from -the Dukes of Hazard. My fav show and my husband’s when we were growing up. I love basset hounds and so of course Flash was my favorite.

    Smartest dogs around when it is time to take a break. My daughter has one that pushes in the keyboard on the computer and sits and says “OK time to go”. Roscoe is so sweet.
