Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Then one foggy Christmas Eve...

With each pregnancy, Patrick put forth the name "Roscoe" as a contender, in honor of a favorite great-uncle. Cooler heads fortunately prevailed.

"Forget it," I said, adamantly, three times in a row. "You can name a dog Roscoe. Not a kid of mine."

Meet Roscoe.

Oh holy crap is that dog cute. My word.

PS. My word verification was "enconing". I hope that he is never enconed.

Awwwww! Perfect name for a super-cute puppy. Welcome to the world of dog ownership (she said, from the middle of a furball).

What a cutie! He looks like lots of fun (and trouble, if he's anything like my Pearl). Enjoy!

He's really adorable and did you notice he seems to have a mark on his chest that looks like a cross?

I love Roscoe, both the name and the dog.

P.S. Unlike Schmutzie, my word verification is "terto." Because, apparentely, Roscoe is as cute as a terto.

Cuter, even.

Oh my word, is that dog cute or what? Must not show my husband and must remind myself that I have three cats of which one would have a heart attack if ever a dog would cross the threshold.

What a face! He's adorable! And I'm slightly relieved to see no trace of Jack Russell in him, from what I can tell. Have fun with young Roscoe! The boys must think the world of him!

Such a cutie. My hubby wanted to name our boys "Mosey" as in "Mosey Lister," a famous composer. In TX, though, mosey means to amble. I said, "you can name the dog Mosey."

Love your writing! :)

I had a Roscoe when I was a little girl. He was, quite possibly, the best dog ever. Here's to hoping your Roscoe is just as wonderful.

...I'm not sure that Rosco has a rival for being adorable on this earth.
