Walk With Distractions Everywhere

Poor Roscoe didn’t know which way to turn on yesterday’s walk with distractions everywhere, so he tried to do every direction.

How about to the right? distractions everywhere
How about to the right?

At the very beginning of our walk, a squirrel hung upside down on a tree at eye level with Roscoe and chattered its discontent. And then a squirrel on the other side of our path scattered across the ground just a few feet away. From that point on, Roscoe was looking everywhere for the next squirrel.

Left. The next one will be on the left.
Left. The next one will be on the left.

As a result of his back and forth, Roscoe probably walked twice as far as everyone else. And Hu-Dad thought that would be fine because then maybe he would be twice as tired when we got back home.

Up. The blasted things are above us.
Up. The blasted things are above us.

Movie Memory Monday

With all of the action from the walk, we decided this week’s Movie Memory Monday should be a much calmer film. We present Flickering Fire, a scene of great serenity.

    Roscoe wants to keep everyone safe in case the lions and tigers and bears come down his yellow brick road.

    Roscoe may not have had the joys of walking like he does now and is just experiencing what FUN it is to look for squirrels and those pesky bunnies! I know he is SO lucky to be part of Chez Herd forever! Good job Hu-Dad!
