Still Thinking of You Pal

Not so very long ago Connie and I said goodbye to our beloved black Labrador Roscoe who is pictured here in his 13th year enjoying his view of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Roscoe was bred by Guiding Eyes for the Blind to become a guide dog but although his   intelligence was keen his sweet sensitivity made him a poor candidate for guiding a blind person in traffic.

Roscoe was essentially a loving bull in a china shop whose myriad barks of greeting and playfulness were unlike those of any creature I’ve met before or since.

We miss you pal.
