Essex is Eight

Today I woke up to Dog Dad singing me “Happy Barkday.” Then we went on our morning walk and he talked to me about the past. I got some extra treats and big hug when we got home. He told me how proud he was of me and that he valued my teaching Sherman the “Way of the Collie.”

The Barkday Girl
While he was getting ready for work he told me how much a positive impact I am on his life. I smiled and gave him the look that told him that I had chosen him to be my Dog Dad. Then I rubbed up against him.
My great nephew Sherman gave me some good barks to tell me that he loved me too. We are getting along very well, and I enjoy having the young pup around. Dad is planning to make some Cheddar Collies for us when he gets back from work. Then I want to go to Angel Paws early, so I can enjoy be the “Secretary of Da Fence.”  Pictures to follow on Saturday.

Dog Speed,

Well Happy Birthday girl! You're looking mighty fine! Hope you have fun at the park...and enjoy your birthday cheddar snacks!

Tell Dog Dad we've seen lots of people in San Fran with colored hair, no clothes, weird clothes and such. I think there are a LOT of retired hippies here too. But so far none with flowers in their hair.

Oh, no. Sorry, we're late and missed your barkday, Essex.

A belated Happy Barkday to you! It sounds like you had a very nice day. Knowing your dad is proud of you must have been the best present you received.
