Gemini - 27 June 2015

At 11:30 PM Dad opened up a e-mail and let out such a sound of joy, that I jumped five feet in the air.  The he told me and I howled in joy.  I already knew because the spirit of Great Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon visited me.  I couldn't let Dad know though.
One of These Pups is Gemini Octavia
Star had a litter of 15 Saturday, 27 June.  Unfortunately five crossed the bridge but now have three tri males, four tri females, 2 sable females and 1 sable male.   Then today Bonnie had three puppies--two sable males and one sable female.  

Both Dad and I are going to bed with a smile on our face tonight.  Dad already to name the name for the little tri-color girl will be Gemini.  Gemini Octavia, I can't wait to meet you.  I think I hear the treat bag rustling.

A Lazy June Day

Typical summer in Key West, things have been slow.  I am taking it easy at the park due to the warm weather, though the humidity is not as stifling as usual.
Lincoln
I do want to introduce you to some of my Angel Paws Pals.  The first is Lincoln, the poodle.  Most of the time he arrives in either a baby carriage or in a basket on his mom's bicycle.  Normally he stays by his mom when he visits the dog park.  He is nine years old and is weary of most of the other dogs.  He does trust me though.  Must be my nose.
Dyson
Next is Dyson the boxer.  He is an infrequent visitor and rarely plays.  I get along with him just fine.  Then of course I get along with just about any pup.
Taking a Water Break
With the heat of the summer here, I am glad Dad brings cold water along.  Dad and I are both waiting to here from Lil at Holmhaven about collie puppies.  I sure hope that a tri-color female is in this litter.  Lil drop us a not last week stating she expected the pups to be borne near the end of this week.  Dad however thinks it will be 30 June.  We'll see.  Keep your paws crossed for us.

Anna and Ellie

The weather was nice today when we went to Angel Paws.  When I got there, my pals Anna and Ellie were there.  Then a short time later Rue showed up.  It was chasing and running for a little while.  I did a little fence patrol as well. You have seen pictures of Rue before, but I wanted to introduce the sisters Anna and Ellie.  They are pawsome pups and are a nice size, Dad thinks around 30 lbs.  So they are not a big pup like a Collie, but not a tiny dog like a Rat Terrorist.

Sherman is Four

Cyber-Paw pals it is hard to believe that I am already four years old.  When I woke up this morning, Dad was singing Happy Barkday to me.  After our walk I got some extra treats.  

Dad took me to Angel Paws Dog Park when he got back from work.  It was a grey cloudy day and only my pal Bella showed up.  We had plenty of fun running around though.  It was supposed to rain, but I  am still waiting for that to happen.

A Grey Bark Day
After Angle Paws, I went to say Howl-Low to my pal Tonks.  Plenty of tail wagging.  When we got home, I read a Barkday Card from Stevie-Grrrr-Wonder and the cats (Slick, Rocky and Cassie).  Next Dad showed me all my presents.  Lots of treats, since I don't play with toys.  
Thanks For The Barkday Card Stevie-Grrr-Wonder
Dad Can I Eat All of Them Now??
My Barkday wish is to celebrate the next with another Collie my home.

Keeping Paws Crossed

I am keeping my paws crossed cyber-paw pals.  Star is pregnant at Holmhaven and puppies are expecting at the end of the month.  Will a tri-color girl be finally be born?  Dad and I sure hope so.  It will be nice to have some paw to bark along with me.

Angel Paws is busy some days and quiet other days.  I need to make sure Dad brings along the camera.  In July my pal Karma will be staying with us for about a week.  I am looking for a rowdy time at my house.

Doodlebug

I have seen the signs of a doodlebug in my yard.  Dad and I were looking around and saw this strange round feature in our front yard.  Dog Dad looked at me and said in reminded him of an ant-lion trap.  He told me the ant-lion is a small critter that builds a sandpit trap.  A bug wanders near the sand pit and falls down, it tries to get up to no avail.  The ant-lion then grabs the insect and pulls it under for it's meal.  Another name for the ant-lion is a doodlebug.  This is the first time Dad has ever seen a doodlebug sand trap..

Keeping Dad Smiling

I have been busy today making Dad smile.  Running around acting like a nut case at the dog park, licking his face and being goofy.  Dad still gets a little wistful but I understand why.  It was four years ago today that Uncle Deacon crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

He has told several stories about Uncle Deacon today.  There was Uncle Deacon taking biscuits right out of a persons pants pocket, the muddy paws playing tug of war with Mongo and having Sasha the Rat Terrorist bouncing all over him.  He called Deacon the Collie Ambassador because he did so well with both people and pups.

Dad smiles and gives me hug.  He dwells on the good times and gives me another hug.  I think both Great Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon would be proud of me.  I know Dad loves me.
