Nurse Roscoe

The Hu-Dad caught a cold, but he had the attention of a crackerjack medical team monitoring his recovery. Nurse Roscoe took the lead.

Hi, Hu-Dad, I made the bed for you.

He helpfully took the sheets and blankets that had been straightened earlier in the day and fluffed them for proper comfort. Humans simply wouldn’t know how to prepare a bed without canine assistance.

See? The sheets and blankets are no longer smooth.

Just in case that wasn’t enough assistance, Roscoe also demonstrated how to stretch out on the and bed and use the pillow. What would humans do without such guidance?

It’s a good thing that Hu-Dad has surrounded himself with working dogs who aren’t shy about helping around the house.

Now I am getting your side of the bed warm.

    There is no doctor, nurse, medicine or witch doctor as effective in curing human ills as a dog–any dog.

    With all the excitement of moving, fixing up two houses, and weathering certain large storms and their aftermaths, I’m surprised all of you aren’t under the weather! Glad you have such good care on paw/hand!!

    I used to have a beagle that did that with putting his head under a pillow. How cute.

    Roscoe so typifies a rescue; grateful and loyal to the core.

    What a wonderful nurse and house keeper you are Roscoe! Hu-dad needs a little help since he’s a bit under the weather. So glad he has you to care for him!
