Chipper Roscoe Morning

The other day, we mentioned Roscoe’s slow morning start, so it’s only fair that we highlight the chipper Roscoe morning from yesterday.

Yippee! It's morning time! Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!
Yippee! It’s morning time! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!

Too many exclamation points in the caption to the photo above, but Roscoe deserves a little credit after making fun of him in a post the other day about his slow morning start. Yesterday morning had a nice breeze off the marsh and he was ready to attack the day.

What a beautiful day.
What a beautiful day.

The Hu-Dad, who is always grumbling about something, suggested he needed some more coffee before he could deal with a chipper Roscoe morning. We think, though, that a smiling Roscoe might just be the perfect start to your morning.

How about a giant hug?

    Roscoe-with a smile like that I’m sure Hu-Dad had to come out of his little grumpy mood. Hu-Dad-the pictures are amazing and so wish I could give Roscoe a BIG HUG! BTW-I read the new book and couldn’t put it down-read it in one day!!!
