Roscoe

Roscoe, on the right with DS's girlfriend, is a friendly dog. He is lovable, fairly calm and happy. We don't mind having him stay here with us right now, well at least not too much.

He has a few bad habits I wish he would get over. He sheds all the time. (I'm going to try your suggestion Lanny, just as soon as I get a few minutes to look for it.) When you move anything in my house there WILL be a pile of dog hair under it. He still thinks he is a little puppy. He wants to climb on your lap, even if you happen to be in the bathroom at the time, or sleeping. We cage him at night while we are sleeping or he spends his night going from bed to bed, stepping on your head in his effort to get comfortable. Once he knows you are starting to doze back off he climbs back over your head to go to the next bed. When he is in his cage he is quiet, he never cries to get out or barks.....but he rolls around and scratches, which makes a lot of noise in that cage. He is at an awkward stage in life. He has acne, allergies and sometimes fleas, which he is highly allergic to. He smells like a wet dog all of the time. It doesn't matter how many baths you give him, he still stinks. He loves to clean out the cat litter box, which I will leave to your imagination. He also loves us completely and unconditionally. No matter what mood we are in or what our day has been like, he is ready with a cuddle and a kiss on the cheek, which I try to discourage if he has been around the litter box. If we decide to take a short nap, he lays right down with you, or on you, makes no difference to him. He is a good dog, and if DS ever takes him back home I may miss him, just a little.

We call the rolls alligator rolls. Take a look at him next time he does one. Our dog looks exactly like an alligator doing a death roll!

Okay, what kind of crazy coincidence is it that your mom, my mom & Kim's mom were all born the same year??
