Happiness Is A Bouncing Puppy

Roscoe may be a couple of years into adulthood, but he is still a bouncing puppy when he’s happy… which is almost always.

Roscoe is happy about... everything. - bouncing puppy
Roscoe is happy about… everything.

Today’s photo is the answer to a simple question, “Hey, Roscoe, do you want to go for a walk?” We know that sometimes we canines can be a little inscrutable, but we are guessing—just guessing—that Roscoe replied with a yes. Other interpretations are welcome, of course, but Hu-Dad said he had better move before he gets trampled by a bouncing puppy.

    Happy dogs are the best medicine.

    Hey Cutie! Roscoe P!
    Does Hu-Dad have a poop picker upper in your yard ?

    Seeing Roscoe P bouncing around like a pupper is wonderful to see. Just like humans-dogs like to act young too-!!
