75 Year Anniversary

Dog Dad was talking about Grand-Pawther (Dad's Pawther) to us.  Grand-Paw followed on after D-Day.  During WW II he drove the chaplain around.  That chaplain later married Dad's parents.  Nothing was sure back then and many men did not return home to their families. 

We were lucky to have these hoomans around.  They grew up during tough times and faced adversity during a time of great upheaval.

We remember their sacrifice and bravery on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.

Sherman Is Eight

Sherman woke up to Dad singing Happy Barkday to him this morning.  He gave Dad a big collie smile.  Then Dad hugged him and we went for our morning walk.  While Dad was packing his lunch for work, he gave both of us a slice of ham.  When he left for work we got an extra dog treat too.

When Dad got home, we got an extra dog treat too.  Later in the day we went to Angel Paws.  Maximus stopped by a couple minutes later, followed by two border collies that are visiting.  After they left Baily, the German Shepherd stopped at the park.

For his barkday we got new bowls.  They are from LL Bean, we love them and they are well constructed.  Cost a little more, but these should last furever.  They are not made out of particle board.

Hope every paw had a grrrreat day like we did.

Good News From Dayton

We got an email from Dad's sister late yesterday.  Brudder Steve is okay.  No land line because electricity is out at his house  and his cell phone had died.  Sister Becky knew a hooman that could check up on him and they got word back to her. 
We Rest Now That Brudder Steve Is Okay
He was several blocks away from areas that were badly damaged.  We are happy he is well.

Worried Dog Dad

Dad is worried about his brudder Steve.  Steve lives in Dayton, Ohio where they had all those tornadoes.  None of Dad's siblings has heard from him.  From what his sister Becky told him, he has been having problems with his cell phone.  The land line goes directly to email without ringing, which suggests something is wrong with the phone.

 Becky knows one of Steve's friends in the area.  They will be checking on him late tonight.  Steve is in our thoughts and prayers.  We are staying close to Dad, while he waits to find out.

Need A Name

We have been after Dad to post things, but he has been slow. 

Back on 26 February we received a package from Angel dog Sasha's Mom.  She had been helping a friend clean up a rental house and found an awesome collie figurine.  She immediately thought of our pack.  Dad told her of course he would take the statue. 
Figure From Angel Pup Sasha's Mom

Dad hadn't talked to Sasha's Mom since Sherman was a little pup.  He was touched that she remembered him and the collies.  We love the figurine but can't think of a good name.  Maybe one of you could suggest one.

Lots of memories came back when the figurine arrived.  Dad told of stories of Essex and Deacon, the opening of Angel Paws, Daniel, Hooter, Sasha, PJ and a number of other pups from that time.  We enjoyed listening to Dad ramble on.

A New Leash In Life

Cyber-paw pals Gemini's flexi leash died yesterday morning.  Dad put it on Gemini, out the door we went and the leash decided not to retract back.   We walked about ten yards and Dad said this isn't going to work, because we kept getting tangled in the leash.  In we went and out came the long orange leash.  Dad put in on Gemini and we went for our walk.
Old Leash Is Kaput
Dad went to work, and on the way back got a new flexi and some dog treats.  Gemini got to try the new leash this morning.  Gemini loved being on a flexi leash again.  We only use the flexi on walks. 

Well time fur Dad to put things together fur going to work.

March Pals

Well cyber paw pals, Dad is finally posting.  March has been slow at Angel Paws for the most part.  We did have a couple pals come visit Angel Paws from up north.  First there is Buster, who lives near Niagara Falls.  Gemini remembered him when he visited several years back.  The two of them played a lot together.  We sure hope he makes it back next year.

Next there was Wrigley.  Wrigley lives close to Chicago and he is a big Cubs fan.  He played with both Gemini and Buster. Buster left about a week ago and Wrigley several days later.  The park is really hit and miss now.

The weather is still nice, but hot summer days will be here sooner than we care for.
