Sherman's Seven Year Bark-Aversary

Dad and I looked at each other this morning.  As we were on our walk he told me today was my Gotcha Day.  Yep, seven years ago Dad and Grrreat Auntie Essex drove up to Holmhaven to bring me to Key West.  I got lots of hugs from Dad..  Gemini and I got extra dog treats today.  We later went to Angel Paws and a lot of our pals were there.

It has been a fun day and I got to give Dad a ton of face licks. 


Dad told me it seems so long ago but then again like it was just yesterday.  We have had a adventures, good times, sad time, but most importantly we have had each other.  Below are some pictures of me as a puppy.

5 July 1947

We hear a creaking sound.  Sherman's tail starts wagging.  We wander over to a big door and see Dad playing with some dials.  I nudge Sherman and ask him what is going on.  Sherman barks out "That is the WABAC machine Gemini!"

Sherman quickly explains about how Dad would take the collies back in time using the WABAC machine. I listen intensely as Sherman tells me about previous WABAC machine adventures.  Dad turns the dials to 5 July 1947, location Chicago.

The machine makes some noises and then we are sitting on the roof of Comiskey Park in Chicago.  It is the top of the seventh inning the Indians are behind 5-1.  Joe Gordon walks.  Ken Keltner walks too.  Hank Edwards grounds shortstop to 2nd baseman, runners on first and third.Then comes up an African American man, Larry Doby.  Larry Doby strikes out. Cleveland scores two runs that inning..  When the game ends the Indians loose 6-5.

We look at Dad quizzically.  He tells us we saw the color barrier being broken in the American League.  Dad told us that  Larry Doby was a great hall of fame player, a class act.  Larry Doby helped bring the Indians there last World Series Championship in 1948.  We smile and wag our tails.  We get back in the WABAC and come home.  Hopefully there will be some more WABAC adventures.

One More Day - Bo and Howser

The one sad thing about living here is that friends come and go.  We will hopefully see our chums Bo and Howser one more time, before they leave Key West.  Both are due to leave before the 4th of July.  Dad has enjoyed talking to their pawrents and we have enjoyed playing dog games with them.
Bo and Howser take it easy, while Coral watches
Friday we had fourteen dogs at the park at one time.  Today we had six.  Gemini did a little playing but mostly we all just laid around.  it was hot outside.  We can't wait until winter returns.  Below are some pictures from Angel Paws.

Gemini Is Three

Bowsers, folks Gemini is three years old.  It seems just the other day she came to Key West, but then it seems like furever too.  When Dad woke up he sang "Happy Barkday" to Gemini.  We then went for a walk.  When Dad left for work we got an extra treat and some roast beef too.

Cheddar Collies
When he got home, we got two treats then the oven heated up.  He made cheddar collies.  Mmmmm.  Next it was off to Angel Paws.  When we got there Houser and Payton greeted us.  Later Sol and Luna made it there, as well as some pups that we have seen for only the second time.  Four Boston Terriers and two corgis.  We shared our cheddar collies and saved some fur our pals that were not at the park.

Pineapple - June 2018

The collies hope everypaw  had a pawsome pawthers day.  We spent a lot of time with Dad.  We let him take for a walk and go to Angel Paws.  

In the yard we had this big yellow-orange colored fruit.  We helped Dad cut the plant out of the flower pot.  A nice pineapple plant.  Dad loves them, but the fruit comes out about every 18 months or so.  Sherman decided to pose with the pineapple.  Gemini wandered off, since no treats were involved.

Sherman Is Seven

Sherman is seven years old.  Dad can hardly believe that it has been that long.  Dad gave Sherman and big hug and sand Happy Barkday to him.  We got a big bone that one of his friend Tom gave him, a pig ear and frosty paws today.  We haven't eaten much of our meal.

31 MAY 2018

Well cyber paw pals this is the last day of May.  June is coming our way and our pack will have plenty of barkdays to celebrate.  This last week has not been much fun because all the rain impacted our ability to visit Angel Paws.  We did get plenty of walks in.  Dog Dad being his corny self sang song like "Singing in the Rain" and "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head."  Fortunately not many hoomans and pups walk in the rain.  We kept Dads spirits as he remember Deacon's bridge crossing on the 27th.  Some strategic face licking made Dad smile and give us a hug.

Dad did manage to pawtograph us on the dog bed this morning.  Dad smiles when we get on the bed together.

Bark at you more in June.
