February News

Things have been busy around our home.  The bathroom ceiling is being repaired.  That makes Dad happy and of course we love having company in the house.  Both of us like extra attention.

Gemini gave Dad a big scare at Angel Paws Monday.  We were leaving the dog park and she slipped out of her collar, ran across the street to meet another dog.  A man driving his truck stopped when he saw her escape.  Both Dad and I were relieved Gemini wasn't hit by the truck.  Dad went out that night and got her a smaller collar to wear at the Publix Grocery Store.
Gemini & Navy Resting After Play
Gemini and Navy play a lot at the park.  It is rough play, but Gemini enjoys it.  Navy's Dad had a DNA test done.  The test revealed that he is a mix of Australian Cattle Dog, Labrador Retriever and Cocker Spaniel. Navy's Dad has been keeping a close eye on him and warning people about running in the park.  Navy's herding instinct takes over and he will nip at people's heels.  Since Navy has tagged a couple people, his Dad closely watches what is going on at the park.

Friday, Gemini is going to the vet to be spayed.  Operations make Dad nervous, so I've been keeping an eye on Dad.  We will post after the surgery.  The bad news is that Gemini will not be going to Angel Paws for awhile.

Dog Speed,

Sherman
