Burning Energy

As the youngest member of The Herd, Roscoe is constantly burning energy with his activities (and the Hu-Dad smiles).

Even in the midst of the summer, Roscoe has excess energy to burn. Hu-Dad encourages lots of activity, even if we have to do much of it in the early morning and late evening this time of year.

For some odd reason, Hu-Dad is always muttering that “A Tired Sibe is a Good Sibe” mantra of his. And Roscoe sleeps soundly through the night.

I'm done, Hu-Dad, we can go in now.

Halloween Costumes

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
