The Song Must Go On

Sometimes the festive spirit just bubbles up and no matter how many times you’ve been told to use your inside voice, the song must go on.

Roscoe must sing - the song must go on

Roscoe tried. Really, he did. Hu-Dad felt the Sibernacle Choir attempting to erupt in celebration and he cautioned everyone to keep it bottled up. But that’s not fair. When the time is right, the song must go on.

    It’s one of the best things about huskies. Juno and I used to sing together but for her, it meant we were going somewhere. So of course, we did. (She’d also howl when she thought it was time to leave wherever we were. She was a bossy girl.)
