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

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.
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.
