Roscoe’s Fourth Herdaversary

Four years ago, Roscoe joined the Herd and became best buddies with the Little Curmudgeon. Celebrating Roscoe’s fourth Herdaversary!

Introducing Roscoe!
Roscoe’s first exploration of the yard

Within his first week of living with us, we took him on a beach trip. Not sure if he’d ever seen the ocean before—we know little about his life before so don’t know what he’d done—but he sure seemed impressed.

Whoa! The water moves!
Whoa! The water moves!

He settled into Chez Herd life quickly. He loved having siblings around and got along well with everyone.

A furry family.
A furry family.

But to everyone’s amazement, he bonded the most with the least likely subject. The Little Curmudgeon. His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey.

That's my hole i dug. Don't touch it.

By his first snow storm with us, the two of them were thick as thieves. Where one went, the other was sure to follow.

And then they became the bestest wrestling buddies. Either one gives the other a play bow, and the games are on.

Game on, Bro

But he is also a master at putting on the sad face for the Hu-Dad and can get his way with this simple look.

I’m pretty sure it’s time for a meal, Hu-Dad

He also shows us the Roscoe smile often.

The smile says it all.
The smile says it all.

So glad to have you as a part of the family, big guy. Happy fourth Herdaversary!

    They’re so good at leaving their past behind and living in the moment. He’s a very happy boy, as are they all.
