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

Today is one of those days that Dad always remembers and stops a moment to pray. Ever since he was a little boy he remember December Seventh. Essex told me that both Grand Maw and Grand Paw told Dad that they remember where they were the day that Pearl Harbor was attacked. They remember the speech given by FDR. Here is a link to FDR's speech declaring war on Japan. A lot of things changed in the world that day. Over the course of the next four years many young men and women would cross the Rainbow Bridge.
The Battleship Arizona
After Dad left Ohio, he got to travel to Hawaii and see Pearl Harbor. He visited the Arizona Memorial. Dog Dad can remember where he has been and doing on previous December Sevenths. He thinks of how different the world would have been if it never happened. May we never forget those who gave their lives to protect our country and may the Lord give our leaders the wisdom that has eluded so many of the worlds past leaders.
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.
