This is my most recent photo of Roscoe. – December 25th, 2016
The first two photos were taken on my cell phone camera back in 2011, before I got my first “big boy” camera as a birthday present.
The last two photos were taken on the same chair, almost four years
apart. We call this “Roscoe’s chair”. He spends countless hours lounging in his chair, barking relentlessly at anything he sees outside.
It’s interesting to see how he’s grown over the years (not much). It’s also interesting to see how I’ve grown as a photographer, based on these images alone.
Since I’ve moved, I haven’t gotten nearly as many opportunities to see Roscoe, hence the major gap between the last two photos.
[commencing dog pun in 3…2……]
It’s ruff not being able to see lil Rosc every day, but it’s also a blessing. He can never contain his excitement whenever I initially walk through the door. I’m immediately met with face-licks and vicious tail-wags every single time.
While writing the previous paragraph, I couldn’t help but flashback to an insightful quote from The Leader. After asking New York congressman Tom Reed “If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?”, we were graced with this piece of wisdom:
“I’d be a dog just because you bring a smile to people’s face, and you also can go lay down in the corner in front of a fire and get comfortable and take a long nap and get snacks from your master.”
Well said, Tom.
