Navy Headed North Tomorrow

It is the last day of April and time to say until we meet again to our pal Navy.  His hoomans are leaving in their RV to travel North.  They will be spending time in Bar Harbor, Maine.  Gemini will be bummed out because the two of them constantly wrestle with each other.
Navy and Gemini Wrestling.  They do that a lot.
Sherman will be happy to have control of the fence return to him.  When Gemini and Navy play Sherman will referee at times.  We visited the vet to get new flea and tic medication.  Sherman weighed in at 79 lbs and Gemini 48 lbs.

Gemini will be waiting until October, when Navy returns to Key West.

Life Got Busy

We've been after Dad to post, but life got busy.  Taxes, house stuff, work stuff, you  name it.
Navy
During our extended posting absence our pal Navy was attacked by another dog while on a walk.  He had a puncture wound on his nose, ear and a small piece of his tongue was missing.  After several days Navy came back to the park and does not seem to be suffering any after effects.  His pawrents and us were all worried how this would impact our pal.  Gemini told Navy that a quote from the movie "The Replacements"  - "Chicks did scars!"
"They Still Don't Have Deductions for Dog Biscuits!"
Sherman helped Dad do taxes.  They were sent in the mail several days before they were due.


We have pineapples growing in our yard.  Dad is getting excited as home grown pineapples are pawsome.

Dad was talking to Casey's Dad and found out he was the human that stopped his truck when Gemini slipped out of her collar and gave Dad the big scare back in February.  The other pawtographs are of us living the dream.

Sherman and Gemini continue to have fun playing at the Dog Park and at home.  Gemini is getting bigger and is a fun loving energetic Collie Lass.

31 March 2016

Nothing much going on and it was only Navy and the Collies at Angel Paws.  Navy and Gemini played quite a bit.  I barked, errr refereed.  Then Navy came over to lick my face.

DI told Dad we needed some pawtographs because folks want to see the pawtographs of Gemini, me and our pals.

A Tail of Visitors

We've intended to post, but have been really busy trying to get things done.  Somehow, one thing after another keeps popping up.
Gemini & Miles
The 16th through the 21st we had visitors.   Miles and his brudder Copper visited our home.  We pick them up, then Dad brings the kennel with the two pups into the house.  First, Miles comes out and takes a little pee and Dad yelled at him.  Miles takes it all in stride  Then Copper walks right in front of Dad by the table and took a big pee to mark his territory in front of Dad.

Dad's time in the oil field came out.  His voice boomed and words from his oil patch day came out.  A few the collies have never heard before.  In his state of agitation and rush to clean up the pee, Dad knocks a bunch of tins that were on the table onto the floor.  We think all that noise scared the dog out of Copper.   Copper refused to come out of the kennel while Dad was around during his stay.

After awhile Dad decided close the dog door in the back patio and put the kennel in the patio every now and then.  That way Copper could eat and relieve himself.  Dad figured Copper would come out after seeing Miles chilling out with us and Dad.  No such luck.

Dad could have tried to force the issue, but that isn't his style.  Dad checked off leaving the tins on the kitchen table when other pups visit.  It is amazing how something will scare the dog out of one pup, while the others are not phased.

Gemini In Trouble

Dad came home Friday and Gemini had chewed the corners off a rug that was in front of her kennel.  Dad gave her the evil eye and didn't give her the happy greeting.  Fortunately Dad doesn't get really mad about stuff.  Overall, he was happy that since Monday, 7 March, not a single accident in the house, and he hasn't even come back for lunch.

Earlier that week, Dad came home and Gemini was sitting on the couch.  That was a first for her.  However, she had trouble getting off the couch.  She wants a rug nearby the floor.

That Gemini is overall a great collie.  She hasn't gotten into to many things.  She plays well with the other pups at Angel Paws.  Here are some pictures of her with ball at Angel Paws.  She doesn't play often with balls, but it was fun to watch her this time.

Return of the Gemini

When Dad put me in the car, my heart started to race.  When Dad started to drive, he was humming the theme song from "Star Wars."  I knew something was up, when we passed through the gates and made the turn, I knew where we were going.  After almost two long weeks, I have returned to my beloved Angel Paws Dog Park.

When I got out, I noted my pals Navy, Sky and Tonks were already inside.  Later on Dakota and Kayla showed up.  I played a whole lot, and Sherman even joined in a couple times.  The world is back to normal.

Once Every Four Years

Gemini is doing pawsome.  She hasn't worn the cone since Thursday.  She has not been at Angel Paws since her spay.  She misses her favorite place, but Doc told Dad 10-14 days to heal up.  With how she rough houses at Angel Paws, Dad decided on 14 days.  

Dad was going to post tomorrow, but woke up.  We told him he only gets to post on 29 February once every four years.  That got him to post.  BOL.

Dog Speed,
