Before and After
We got Roscoe from Southern Pines Animal Shelter as a Christmas present for the kids (me?) last year. He was about 6 weeks old when we got him. He had a an alertness and a twinkle in his eye that immediately caught my attention. Joseph thought him less than asthetically pleasing because of all his speckles and spots. I thought it added to his charm.
We brought him home, de-manged him, and started acclimating him to his new home and way of life.
There have been days filled with puppy mischief. There have been other days only mostly filled with puppy mischief. But, in the last few weeks, we have seen a new maturity creeping into Roscoe's routine.
Today, it really struck me how much he is grown physically and mentally. He is really starting to settle into his life here with us. He's gonna be a good dog for us. We all love him, and he loves us right back like only a
dog can do.
