Surprise Car Ride

Roscoe was all excited to receive a surprise car ride without any siblings, which was great until he figured out where we were going.

By myself? How lucky! - surprise car ride
By myself? How lucky!

Hu-Dad can be so tricky. He asked Roscoe if he wanted to go for a car ride, which is awesome and exciting. Then he said just Roscoe—no one else. How terrific! And then we pulled up to the v-e-t for an annual exam and a blood draw and… Wait a minute! At least Hu-Dad said all the news was good and we don’t have to go back for a long time, but Roscoe might be slightly suspicious of the next invitation.

    I’m sure he forgave you pretty quickly, a great thing about dogs. Roscoe seems to look happy most of the time.

    Roscoe I know Penny the Corgi Queen feels your pain!! She’s really good when we have to travel. But she absolutely knows when she is going to the groomer! Not her favorite place along with the V-e-t!!
