Essex's Ninth Bark-Aversary

Dog Dad woke up this morning, walked over to me and gave me a sloppy kiss right on my forehead.  Then he said "Happy Bark-Aversary Essex."  I looked at him and smiled.  Then we went for a walk and when we got home it was dog treat heaven.  Cheddar collies, dog treats and cheese.

A Little Grayer Around The Muzzle
Bowsers, it is hard to believe that I have lived with my Dog Dad for nine years.  We have had lots of adventures together.  Plenty of happy and some sad times.  We look out for each other too.  Below is a picture taken during the first couple of months in Key West.

We'll time to go, see you next year cyber-paw pals.

Aw, Essex, you grew into a lovely collie. Not sure whether a bark-aversary is a birthday or gotcha day, but happy whichever! And Happy new Year.
