Searching For Santa

The big day is right around the corner and we are getting excited. Roscoe stays at the window searching for Santa. Or is that squirrels?

Must keep watch - searching for santa
Must keep watch

Every day, we sniff the packages under the Christmas tree and inspect the tags with our names on them. Hu-Dad says we have to wait until Santa Claws comes before we can open them, so Roscoe has taken up the official observation post searching for Santa. Or squirrels. He forgets.

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.
