Slow Morning Start for Roscoe

Sometimes you awake ready to attack the day, but yesterday was a slow morning start for Roscoe.

Yesterday was our first morning in a while that wasn’t rainy and stormy, so we had a leisurely start to the day. Roscoe had a particularly slow morning start as he worked his way into the yard.

I think I'll stand here for a while.

Meanwhile, everyone else is in the yard getting business done so we can go for our morning walk and then come home for breakfast. So, shall we hurry things up a little, Roscoe?

    Roscoe is such a beautiful boy. I tend to get him mixed up with Frankie when they are all together. It’s nice to see him by himself for a few photos. Really, he’s stunning.

    Every once in awhile we all have that kind of morning. Roscoe is so handsome.

    Hu-Dad-we all have mornings like this! I guess Roscoe’s energy got up and left for a bit yesterday!! I hope you all enjoyed your walk and then breakfast!
