Roscoe’s Five O’Clock Shadow

An afternoon walk on a sunny day gives us the perfect bad joke opportunity—here’s Roscoe’s five o’clock shadow.

Roscoe's five o'clock shadow

The afternoon fades to evening. The sun lowers in the west. The Herd saunters down the trail. The ending of another busy day in our new Chez Herd. The perfect moment for a really bad pun, so here goes. Roscoe’s looking a little tired from a long day. Can’t you see his five o’clock shadow?

    I like the pun! Looks like you have another nice area near home to walk the Herd, as in SC. Better than having to load the all up and drive.

    Love the 5 o’clock shadow on Roscoe-lol. But the best thing is a GOOD Sibe is a TIRED Sibe so hopefully after his belly was full he went nighty nite!!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
