May your tail wag, your belly be full, and may you have a forever family to rub your tummy and scratch behind your ears. --------- the collies' blessing to other dogs

we set the WABAC machine to 19 June 1885, destination Bedloe’s Island, New York,
127 years ago.When we got there we
watched the French frigate Isere sail into the
harbor.Dad tells us that aboard the Isereare 241 crates, that contain the Statue of
Liberty.When the pieces are assembled
the statue is 151 feet tall.What we see
in the boxes is not the familiar green giant of today, but a shiny copper
version.You see the statue is
made from copper sheets.Over time
copper will oxidize to the green color we are used to seeing.
The statue makes us think of Grand Paw seeing the statue on his way to Europe to fight in WW II,
and then again when he returned home from the war.We think of our pal Asta, gazing
on the statue so many times when her pack lived in New York City.
I Wonder What Shape A Dog Would Have Chosen
sat back and wondered what the statue would have looked like if the dogs of New York City would have
designed it.Somehow, we think the shape
would have been far different than it is today.The collies think most of you pups can guess what shape we think it would have been.
Essex and Sherman are aunt and great nephew. Essex is a friendly, but reserved female tri-color. Sherman is a brave happy outgoing male sable & white. Deacon is a our dog angel that watches over our pack. He crossed the bridge before his fifth barkday.
