Poor Decision Making

Roscoe P. with regrets

Roscoe P. loves his routines and loves his bestest big brother. Early Monday morning—about 4 a.m. to be precise—Typhoon needed to go outside (that poor kid’s digestive system sometimes creates that issue). Roscoe, of course, had to accompany his bestest big brother. Once back inside the house, Roscoe regretted the interruption of his sleep and put himself back into his crate. That is the look of regret at 5 a.m. for poor decision making. Or, perhaps, it’s a look of annoyance that Hu-Dad is taking photos at 5 a.m.

    What a sweet boy Roscoe! Hu-Dad it’s rude to take pics at 5am! Roscoe is politely saying get that thing outta my face !! 😉

    AAAWWW Roscoe P-what a great brother you are going out with Typhoon. You DO look kind of sad though for that decision! I hope you were able to take more naps and forgive Hu-Dad for his early morning photos!
