News From Ohio

We have two news worthy items from north central Ohio, where Dog Dad grew up. First the house Dog Dad grew up and we spent time visiting Grand Maw and Grand Paw was damaged. From what we heard there was lots of wind and rain. A huge section of the old maple tree by the house finally gave way and crashed on top of the back porch. Portion of the tree that broke crushed the porch and poked a couple holes in the side of the house. Dog Dad sisters were happy they had sold the house in January 2010. The whole story brought back memories from June 2008, when the tree crashed down and landed in our front yard.

The second is good news. Cassie's Dog Mom and Dog Dad in Ohio were adopted by a little female tri-color puppy named Gracie Lou. When we get pictures, we will post them. Dad wasn't planning on visiting Ohio, but he really wants to see that puppy. That makes three things Dog Dad wants to do this summer and he will probably only do one. The three things are:

1 - Go to "The Gathering" in late August in New Jersey. This is were a lot of collies gather at the Terhune Memorial Park, the home of that famous author who raised outstanding collies and wrote amazing collie stories.

2 - Go to a reunion in North Dakota in early August. He might see a lot of former buddies he served with.

3 - Visit family, friends and meet Gracie Lou.

What do you think we should tell Dog Dad to do? Inquiring Collies want to know.

Hard choice. They all sound like fun.

Glad no one was hurt when the house was damaged.

Ohio in early early August, on to North Dakota, then over to New Jersey in late August (perhaps stopping by Ohio again) and home.

Or, straight to North Dakota, back to New Jersey via Ohio, and home.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Those are hard choices but I'd say visit the new puppy! :)

That is scary that the tree broke the porch!

Hellooo! I found my way to your blog and had to join -- collies are so pretty doggies!

Either of your choices sounds like fun to me, but then there are not many things that I don't like. ;)

Woofs & hugs!
