Waiting On A Surprise

Well cyber-paw pals, Dad told me to expect a surprise tomorrow.  I wonder what it will be.

I've been seeing more pups at Angel Paws and need to make sure Dad takes his Camera.  The batteries died in the camera, so I had to get after Dad.

Pawtographs and Memories

Dad has been in a melon collie mood today.  It would have been Grrrreat Auntie Essex 11th Barkday.  I've kept in in good spirit with my best antics, but Grrreat Auntie went through a lot of significant events with Dad.  He smiles at me, but he remembers his little girl.  He will be okay tomorrow, he only gets misty eye when he thinks of Essex or Deacon.  The picture below was taken after a morning walk.  There was a steady rain and they both got very wet.

Essex with us last night, I think she help the Cardinals with that walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth.  I didn't post about it yesterday because the game wasn't over when I posted.  When our friend Jake mentioned El Birdos, it made Dog Dad think of being in Grade School.  He thought of Orlando Cepeda, Lou Brock, Tim McCarver, Roger Maris, Steve Carlton and Bob Gibson.  Dad loved the fiery nature of Gibson.  He remembers being in school and the teacher wheeling out the TV set and the entire class watching the World Series on school time.  Then there was the time one of his classmates got in trouble for having in an earpiece and listening to the game during class.   There were times when he got home from school and the World Series was on.  My how things have changed.  Now Dad is lucky if he can stay awake for the end of the game.

On the puppy front we have had no luck.  Three litters but no tri-color girls.  Dad has his heart set on a tri-color girl.  When that pup is born there will be a huge celebration.  In the meanwhile we will go to Angel Paws Dog Park early today.  The spirit of Grrreat Auntie will be there, and it where she would want to be on her Barkday.

Beware Of The Elf

Dad has been in a good mood today.  First our Brooke and Sidney are doing fine.  They weathered the typhoon.  We were worried about them.

Next the Cleveland Browns won.  That put Dog Dad in a really good mood.  I wore a Cleveland Browns hat for Dad.  All I can say is "Beware of the Elf!"  I wonder if the Spirit of Grrreat Auntie Essex had any role in the win.  It is pawsible.

Then Dad mowed the yard and took me to Angel Paws.  Much to my delight, my pal Karma showed up.  We played a bunch and that made our hooomans smile.

Praying For My Pals Brooke & Sidney

Folks, Dog Dad and I are keeping our pals Brooke and Sidney in our prayers because their pack moved to Okinawa.  If you have been following the news, Okinawa had one typhoon and now are dealing with Typhoon Vongfong.  The winds from Typhoon Vongfong are 70 mph now and are forecast to reach 117 miles per hour.  Dad told me they are due to have winds over 70 mph for over 36 hours.  I can't imagine not going to the bathroom for that long.

Their entire pack is in our thoughts and prayers.  We hope the Great Dane watches over them and keep them safe.

Sleepy Time

Dad often chuckles at me when he finds me sleeping.  He says that I am sleep in some strange positions, and I've done that since I was a pup.   Here are some pawtographs of me sleeping.  Dad has caught me with my nose under the throw rug, head under the bed and other strange places.  Unlike Grrreat Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon, I don't sleep belly up.

Do you sleep in funny positions and places?

Little Buddies

Angel Paws has been slow this year.  I have a couple new chums I want to introduce you too.  The first is Kingo.   Kingo is a nine year old mixed breed and is bi-lingual.  His pawrents are from Canada, so he knows both French and English.  He likes to play with a basketball,, which is a sight to see, because the basketball is bigger than Kingo.  Kingo seems to like me, though we haven't played with each other.

Next is Gracie a five-month old sheltie puppy.  She is a sable just like me.  I will not see Gracie a lot at Angel Paws, because her Dad worries about bad pups at the park.  Dad told me most of the pups that visit here are really nice.  
Gracie and Kingo Just Sniffing
Hope every paw had a pawsome Sunday.

North-South and a Minion

Early this month one of Dad's chums retired from the Coast Guard.  Looking back over the years and the Dog Park there are plenty of stories to tell.  His chum had a pawsome cake made to look like a minion from the movie.  Dad said the cake was really pawsome.  During the ceremony Dad found out that his chum had circumvented South America crossing the rough seas between at the very Southern Point where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet, as well as being stationed in Alaska.

It was interesting to meet his chum's Mom, who is a really nice lady.  She really liked me and enjoyed talking with Dad.  His chum is a man, who Dad would say the good far out weighs the bad and most important of all cared about what he did.  Both Grrreat Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon liked Dad's chum.  Grrrreat Auntie Essex was a pawsome judge of character.  She always let Dad know if somebody was okay.

For me I got to meet up with Chase and Bailey again.  We got along fine but didn't play with each other.  We did bark up a storm though.
