The humans are enjoying their morning coffee and Roscoe wants to make sure they think his behavior is not suspicious at all.
Quiet time in the house as the humans sip their morning coffee. Hu-Dad looks up and thinks he sees some movement behind a chair, close to an unguarded coffee cup. Roscoe freezes, hiding behind a lamp, so he isn’t spotted. So what do you think, Dear Readers. Do you suspect somepup was planning something, or is this not suspicious at all?

A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
We Had A Little Snow
Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
oh lordy. this whole post and comments have made my day!!! LOLOL! xoxo
I have once again been contacted by client Roscoe with regard to the salacious accusations that have been made against his reputation.
You have stated many times the intelligence of the breed, yet, you make these horrible accusations with regard to my client’s actions and his purported intent. My client is innocent, in fact your own pictures show him carefully guarding your cup from any attempts at stealing or damaging your cup. Yet despite his honorable efforts , you still bring question to his intentions and his reputation as a guardian.
My client has suffered horrible emotional damage as well as unnecessary questions of his reputation. In order to be made whole my client will require a steak, extra belly rubs and extra car rides.
I look forward to your immediate response to this situation lest we move forward to a court of paw.
Sabo the German Shepherd Attorney at Paw
While your client is quite adept at an innocent appearance, he had been known to have questionable ties to organized crime. Exhibit 1 is his long-standing relationship with the career criminal, His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey. Just the other day we caught “The Little Prince” (his known street name) with a bag of treats in his mouth and headed for his abode. When caught red-pawed, who appeared in his defense? None other than your client, the doe-eyed Roscoe. We’re just saying this relationship makes us consider launching a RICO investigation.

Hey just because you are friends with other hoodlums does not make a hoodlum. Roscoe is an equally opportunity friend who should not be judged by who he hangs out with or what those friends do.
That is fabulous! Nothing to see here . . .move on. 🙂
I think he is inspecting the lamp to make sure the wiring is okay.
Thank you Roscoe for your stealth moves and for brightening my day.
Not suspicious at all. Looks like he’s making sure there isn’t any dust that could possibly float into that cup of coffee. That sweet boy deserves a treat.
Innocent. He was just doing some exploring and making sure all was safe. ? I mean who would leave a coffee mug unguarded around a bunch of fluffy butts?
As Quality and Safety Inspector for Chez Herd, I am checking that this lamp is UL approved. Go about your business as I do important work here.
Nervous little dogs always enjoy a morning cup of coffee!!
HHMM-Does Roscoe like coffee? I think he might be up to something Hu-Dad!!!
