An Awesome Pup and His Human

Roscoe and the Pool

When Roscoe was about six months old, my roommate Torrey took him along on a visit to a friend’s house.  I figured since the friend had a dog, it would be a good part of socialization.  While that was probably a good conclusion, Roscoe seemed to avoid large bodies of water after that day.  I think I have a good idea why.  I asked my friend Torrey to tell me the story about the time six-month-old Roscoe tried walking on water.  Here is his response:

OMG.  That was so damn funny.  🙂

It’s not like the pool had a cover on it.  You know, one of those green covers that could look like grass.  No.  Just a bright blue pool.

He was out back with Nitro (a young, spunky Boston terrier) and we were just hanging out.  Roscoe was actin’ a fool, running around, spinning like crazy puppies do.  Running back from one end of the place to the other.  Carrie and I call it Super-Scooting when Boss does it.

Nitro was on the other side of the pool when, out of nowhere, like he was ‘in-the-zone,’ Roscoe bee-lined it towards Nitro.  Right across the surface of the pool.  He got a few steps in.  Then he sank.  Like Wilie-E.-Coyote chasing Road Runner.

He came up from the bottom with the craziest look in his eyes.  Freaking priceless.  Like that pic you have of him in the backyard when he got spooked.  So freaking funny.

      🙂 People have photo shopped that picture of him with a crazed look on his face. It appeared in a series I took with a Nikon on rapid-fire, and it’s a classic with those who’ve seen it.
