2015 in Review

To all a Barky New Year and best wishes for 2016 "The Year of the Monkey."  2016 got exciting at our house as Sherman escaped out of the backyard.  Dad went out looking for him, one of his neighbors went looking in their car.  Dad left the gate open just in case.  After about an hour Dad came back home and noticed the gate was closed.  When he came to the back door, Sherman was looking at him through the sliding glass door.  Dad is not sure who got him back into the house, but a very happy Dad gave Sherman a huge hug and then gave a big one to Gemini too.

Wowzers, lotta stuff happened in 2015. U don't know it until u write it all down. Probably the biggest thing was Gem making her way into your life. My, has she grown! Glad u got Sherman back into his yard this first day of 2016....scary! Maybe u should rename him Houdini? U will have to find out exactly how he got out and take preventative measures. We don't want dad keeling over from a heart attack cuz the pups got out....
