Did the Spirit Move Sherman?

This afternoon Sherman barked by the sliding glass doors, so he could go outside and go potty.  Dog Dad was totally amazed at this action.  It seems Sherman is finally getting house broken.  If he knew how to do a jig, we think he would have danced one.  Sherman was very glad that he had made Dog Dad so happy.  It was a year ago today that GrandPaw (Dog Dad's Pawther) crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  We are wondering if the spirit of GandPaw worked some magic on Sherman. 

Practicing Life Raft Drills
Chilling in the Kennel
 Dog Dad got plenty of calls from his siblings.  All of them miss GrandPaw and GrandMutter.  The family is kind of strange without them there.  While Dog Dad misses them, he would want them to be in the shape when they were active.  He wouldn't want them in the quality of life the last couple years of their lives.  Dog Dad values all the lessons they taught him.  God Bless all of those waiting for us across the Rainbow Bridge.
Essex Gets Comfortable on the Couch
We have enjoyed having Dog Dad around the last couple weeks.  We will be sad to see him go back to work on Monday.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Sherman

Yes maybe Sherman had a helping thought from Grandpaw! Keep up the good work Sherman!! And I totally understand and agree with your comment about the quality of life of our loved ones. As much as I miss my mother, I wouldn't want her to be suffering as she did with Alzheimer's.

I'm sure Grandpaw was prompting you Sherman! You're getting to be such a big you! I bet Dog Dad won't want to go back to work either!

Good job, Sherman! Grandpaw's spirit may have helped too. I know my Grandpaw's spirit is around here too, just watching over us.Mom agrees with Dog Dad about quality of life too. She misses her pawrents, but knows they are waiting over the Bridge.
I looked for woo in chat,but no pups were there.
Dog Dad, good luck going back to work (it IS a four letter word! BOL)
Hugs & howls,
Skye & mom Joan
