Are You Having A Happy Monday?

With a holiday on Thursday in the USA, we are betting that many of you are having a happy Monday, but is it as happy as Roscoe?

With the Independence Holiday looking this Thursday, we bet many of our readers are having a short workweek and some may even have the whole week off. Does that make you smile this big?

A short workweek smile to start your day.

In case that isn’t enough to smile about (or you live somewhere that has a full workweek scheduled), we thought we would point out that our website has now gone advertising free. That’s right, we have removed all of the ads from our website, except for the ones that advertise our Hu-Dad’s books. We have decided that an ad-free environment is better for all of us, despite the loss of advertising revenue. We Siberian Huskies just want to have fun.

Bet our website going ad-free made you smile!

So have a good Monday. Have a good week. And, remember, smile as much as Roscoe smiles. It will make the people around you wonder what you are up to.

Smile. Make everyone wonder why.

    Well said Zoe! I too would often take a look at your ads as I knew they were tried by The Herd! I love The Herd, ads or no ads!

    Lovely Roscoe! Glad you’re going ad free except for Hu-Dads books. It makes for a much better read. Thank you for sharing your many Husky adventures.

    Ok as a long time subscriber I just want to say that I had no issue w the ads for all the time you put into this you should make money. Plus I love your suggestions

    It would be a great week if the US adopted noise free fireworks so that millions of dogs in the states would not be scared like my dogs are. Then they could all smile. Our neighbors start before the holiday and after the holiday and usually when someone is sleeping to go to work the next day. Wish people had as much common sense as most dogs I meet.

    Roscoe is a happy, handsome boy.

    Enjoy the week and your holiday. Keep smiling and we will also.

    Have a wonderful holiday. You make many of us smile every day. Thank you and all your fur babies.

    Oh Roscoe-with a smile like that-how could anyone have a bad day? It’s been very hot and our boy Bradley and I have spent a lot of time inside but today should be cooler. Have a wonderful day!!!
