Roscoe, the youngest member of The Herd, decided to spend some time on the deck making cute faces and wriggling.

Nothing to see here, right? Just a young dog playing and being funny. He wouldn’t possibly have any other purpose, right?

The observant reader will have noticed the paws in the other photos. A certain buddy and Little Prince who might just be owed a few surprise pounces. So maybe being silly was just disguising the real goal.
