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

There are times we make Dad chuckle and the antics of Essex got him laughing and shaking his head yesterday. Dad decided it was a good day for grooming. Both of us had "Hobbit Paws" and were in need of a good brushing and trim. Sherman got to go first. He gives Dad his ugly face but that doesn't work. Dad is busy trimming the paws when he hears a strange thumping noise. He stops and looks around and notices Essex is missing.
"Sanctuary, Sanctuary" Call Me Essexmodo
He looks around some more and there is Essex. She is in her kennel, which she hardly ever goes in anymore. He let out a hearty laugh, smiles and says "Okay Essex, you've delayed grooming for a day. You are one very smart Collie." Dad has a rule that he never messes with us if we are in our kennels. Essex didn't want to get a brush and a trim so she used the sanctuary of the kennel.
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.
