Taking It Easy

Well cyber paw pals, Dad spent the entire week at home and did stuff around the house.  It was nice to have him around, though it did interfere with our usual nap times.  It is one of the big tourist weeks in Key West, and Dad doesn't like to have to deal with all the traffic, especially since there is a lot of road construction.

Below is a video that our breeder Mom, Lil, made of a bunch of our relatives at play at Holmhaven this June.  If you click on the picture it will take you to the video.  Dad was trying to get the You Tube link to work, but silly Dad had problems.  BOL

On different note, today is the eight year anniversary that Herricane Wilma.  Essex says that a lot of things changed because of that storm.  Like all the carpet was torn up and thrown out.  Essex kept Dad sane while he was throwing stuff out that was damaged due to the storm surge.  Below is a picture of the pool that used to be in our backyard.  Sherman never saw the pool as the gremlins were at work while Essex, Sherman and Dad were all asleep back in September 2010.  Those pesky gremlins made one side of the pool burst open and all the water came rushing out.  The black line to the left of Essex marks how high the flood water came up on the pool

We got hit pretty hard here in Tamarac too. Nothing like the water you saw, but our front windows were broken early on by roof shingles from the building across the street. Sparky and I along our 3 cats (all have now crossed the rainbow bridge)huddled in the bedroom watching the big window bow, but thankfully that one didn't break. It was one scary day and I hope I never have to go through another big storm like Wilma

Paws crossed that the season continues to be quite.....I guess there is a price to pay for living in paradise.

Thankfully we seem to have made it through another Hurricane Season safely...i do not envy you in Key West at Halloween...it's just a little too "festive" for me

That pack of collies looked just like a pack of red birds that just won a championship, jumping up and down like kids!

That may not happen for our red birds again, after last night. But somewhere there will always be packs of collies and packs of baseball players jumping up and down for joy!

Wirey woof,

So that was a week off to avoid the Fantasy Fest traffic? The Weather Channel had something about Hur Wilma and a huge thing about Sandy this week. The video of the Holmhaven collies was neat. Your home does look better with all the renovations after Wilma. Doesn't seem like it's been that long since she flooded u out....
