Neighborhood Greeter

Roscoe P. volunteers to be the neighborhood greeter, starting with the two black dogs living behind us.

neighborhood greeter

Roscoe has volunteered to be the official neighborhood greeter of The Herd. On his wishlist of neighbors to meet—a plethora of squirrels, a pair of black dogs who live behind us and bark their greeting (who he is looking at in the photo), some overly well-behaved labradoodles who puzzle him with their quiet sit/stay, lots of children (some of whom have already scratched his ears), and more squirrels.

    It’s nice to have a social circle. ♥

    Perfect doggie-person for the job.

    Sounds like a lively neighborhood for The Herd to get acquainted with. The only sit/stay I am aware of happens while holding tight to the harness!! Siberians are always a kid magnet. good thing 99% love kids..

    I agree with Don Davis-SIT/Stay is NOT in the Siberian vocabulary! I like that Roscoe is getting to know the neighborhood children though BUT not the squirrels! Getting to know a new property CAN be fun!

    “What is this ‘sit, stay’ of which you speak? Such words do not exist in SiberianSpeak!”

The dog didn’t eat my homework, but exploding oatmeal and broken water lines sure interfered with my novel writing this week.

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.
