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.
Essex Resting On The Couch
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
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.
