Eye On The Prize

Roscoe certainly has his eye on the prize. In this case, of course, his target is a squirrel bouncing through a tree.

Eye on the prize

Roscoe’s nemesis? Squirrels. They romp through the trees, leap from branch to branch, and scamper about the yard. All of their play, however, happens outside the fence, much to his disappointment. Don’t worry, though, he has his eye on the prize. Someday…

    or… knowing him… maybe he just wants one for a pet! xo

    Maybe someday one will “slip” into your domain!! Beautiful eyes you do have.

    Sorry Roscoe-I guess that squirrel will always be just out of your reach! I just LOVE your concentration though.
