Sunshine Smile

The weather prognosticators say our rain is ending and clear skies are ahead. Roscoe give us a beaming sunshine smile in thanks.

Now that's a sunshine smile from Roscoe.
Now that’s a sunshine smile from Roscoe.

The whole region has had a foot of rain this week, so we are soggy and tired of gloomy skies. Fortunately, our weather breaks today and sunshine is forecasted to return. The pile of muddy towels can be laundered, which brings smiles to our Hu-Dad. And the opportunity for long sessions of outdoor games brings canine smiles. Yes, it’s sunshine smiles all around here at Chez Herd today. Happy Saturday!

P.S. – Roscoe would like to apologize for the Malamute ears, but he’s too happy to keep them in Siberian formation.
