Grouchiness Gone And Smiles Abound

Roscoe wanted to assure all our readers that he has achieved grouchiness gone, though not everyone appears to be on board yet.

Sorry about yesterday. Grouchiness gone.

After yesterday’s post, Roscoe wanted to assure everyone that he was just sleeping and grumpy, but his usual smiling self is back. In fact he encouraged everyone in Chez Herd to be as happy.

This is my happy. Take it or leave it.

Fine, Roscoe’s favorite brother might take a little warming up before he bubbles over in joy. On second thought, he might take a LOT of warming up. So Roscoe declared song time.

    Poor Typhoon just has that face that makes him look like he’s plotting something. (Is a Roscoe concert in our future? 😀
    It’s always fun to hear the different singing styles of dogs.)
