A Surprise Visitor

A man stopped his bicycle by Angel Paws, opened the gate and walked in.  Dad looked at the man and called his name.  It was one of his friends, he had not seen in many years.  They talked for about an hour.

When we got home we asked about the man.  Dad told us that he was the man, that Dad stayed with when Essex and him evacuated during Herricane Wilma.  That Essex met another pup named Lucy during their stay.  The man and Dad worked together in North Dakota many Dog Moons before Essex came to live with Dad.  We could see memories flooding back into Dad's mind as he smiled.  Dad was not aware his friend was coming as he hadn't checked his pee-mail in awhile.  We hope to see more of the man and listen to Dad tell stories of times long ago and far, far away.
Lucy Crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2010

There were tall tales about Essex, Hurricane Wilma, times in North Dakota.  Weather so cold that you pee would freeze before it hit the ground.  We will have questions and Dad will have answers.  Most of all there will be smiles and hugs.

Dog Speed,

Sherman and Gemini

Isn't that wonderful for a friend to show up like that and bring back all those good memories.
