Favorite Walk: To the dogpark, or through the woods
Best Tricks: Sit, shake, down roll over, speak, high five, stand, up, dance -all by hand commands
Arrival Story: I got Roscoe from a pet store before I knew about the horrors of puppymills. He was an impulse buy. And though I love him dearly, now I know about puppymills and dogs in shelters, I would never buy from a store or breeder again. I support Rescues and Shelters 100%
to learn more about the horrors of puppymills please view adoptdontshop.com or stoppuppymills.org
Bio: It's been about 6 years now and I have to say it's been an adventurous time. I love Roscoe more than anything; he's been a huge part of my life, including support and comfort. He's been my inspiration for my pet photography, my shoulder to cry on, and the goofy-goober to brighten up my day.
Roscoe the Racehound is a pretty great dog. He's more like part of the family than a pet, and he's most-often called 'cousin Roscoe'. I use him in reference to speeches on Spay/Neuter, conferences on adoption and protests against pet stores. And Because of him I've learned more about beagles than I thought I would ever know!
In late 2007 Roscoe was dubbed "Roscoe the Racehound".
Roscoe won "Best Trick" at the GAFCDPC in 2007.
Roscoe's photo won "Best Smile" at the GAFCDPC August 2nd, 2008.
On August 9, 2008 he figured out how to get the treats out his kong/feeder ball.
In November 2008 Roscoe's "Kisses For You?" Picture won 1st place in the "Wow" themed Reflections Contest

It's 2010 and this is our first entry of the year! Man we are L A T E . BOL, apologies our dogster friends. But do no fret, we're here oto update!
Besides the fact that New Years and Valentines Day has passed, the main event is We're Moving! This Friday!!! Mum and I are getting our own shindig BOL, not too far from home .
Also, we've been having freak weather. It keeps SNOWING! It never snows at the beach, and just last night , huge chunks were falling from the sky! Thi s isn't the first weekened its happened actually, it's the fourth weekend. We had three weekends in a row of snow , and then a week break, and it snowed again! This is an outrage. How am I supposed to sunbath with ice beneath my belly ?
I have to admit, when it first snowed I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was like a Christmas miracle...in January BOL!!
There isn't really too much going on other than that. We have a new pup in our family, Yogi Bear. He's a very loud cocker spaniel / poodle mix .
A lot has been going on lately!
We had two pups introduced to our family, Hank and Elvis. They stayed with us for a few days while they transitioned to their foster homes.
These two beagley pups were rescued from a puppymill, and not handled by people so they feared, EVERYTHING! They spent 8months of their lives in cages so they didn't know what it was like to be indoors.
They loved me though, and I showed them what I could. Now they are safe in a foster home, and we'll keep you updated on their progress.
We were also in the process of moving, but due to legal issues it didn't happen, but all is well, we're still keeping it hopeful and looking for new places.
I hurt my leg recently, mum thinks my arthiritis is starting ot kick in, I've began limping on my left hind-leg. You're not going t believe this, but she put me on a fewdays of bed-rest to see if that helps. that means NO FUN! and NO FAIR! All I want to do is run around, but mum cantell somethnig isn't right with my leg. It's stiff and I Wont put much weight down on it. If it continues to act this way, we're definitely taking a trip to the vets office. UGH.
Hmm.. I think that's just about it for news.... :)
We'll keep you posted.
& Boy do we apologize! Just so much has been going on! Some good, and some notsogreat.
But we'll keep it to the good news. Mum has got me two new argile sweaters! We all know the weather has been changing, and with that..comes...well...clothing. Hmpph. I didn't get much say in whether or not I wanted to wear clothes, but I do tolerate it, and on those extra cool nights when I'm snuggling up with mum they do help.
Mum is also in the process of getting two new lenses for her d60, hence the lack of photos that have been uploaded. But don't fret, some new pictures will be up soon.
On another note, one of our cousins has joined the military and we congradulate him. We can't wait to see you when you graduate from bootcamp BAROOO!! Also, mum (and hopefully I) will be making our way to Georgia in the Spring time. Off to another college she tranfers to continue in her pursuit of her BFA in Photography. Who would've guessed?! BOL. We all knew.
Hmm.. thats about it for now, again, our apologies for not being on more. With work, school, walks, and volunteer work there's little time to dilly dally.
But we'll keep you updated!
With lots of love, licks and cinnamon scented pinecones.
