Hunter's Moon

When we went for our walk this morning there was a full moon in the sky.  Dad told us that it was the Hunter's Moon.  He talked about how this moon came in October and the name came from the fact that in our ancient paw-fathers days, the crops would have been harvested and all the critters could be seen.  The hunters could see all the critters and have an easy time hunting.  We found out that the full moon for each month has a name.

We loved that all the moon glow that flowed over us during our walk.  After we got back Dad got his camera and took a paw-to-graph.  Sherman got in the act and had Dad take a picture of his moon dog eyes.

Buddy - Essex's Brudder
Earlier in the week we got a not from Essex's brudder Buddy, who lives up the Keys.  He told us he got his therapy dog papers and now gets to go to school every day with his Mom.  He takes care of all the kids at his school too.  Bowsers that sure sounds so pawsome.  We wish we could go to work with Dad.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Sherman

That sure is nice brother Buddy gets to go to school. It sure would be fun if you could go to work with your dad too.

There was a lovely full moon in the sky when we walked Jan this morning. It was already light but the moon was so clear.

Oooh, that moon really does fit in with the time if the month! That's so interesting to learn about its history. Aww, the pictures of you two are lovely! Buddy looks like Essex a lot. I'm sure you two would make great therapy dogs too!

It was a beautiful moon wasn't it! We noticed it too. It looks very nice in your eyes Sherman!

Boy that would be cool if you could go to work with your Dad! Katie doesn't want to go to work because she's a princess and she says princesses don't work. Sigh.

I love the Hunter's Moon--what with my name being Dianne and all that!! But I didn't get to see it this year :( Not only was it cloudy, I was in hospital.
