Wolf Moon and Sasha

Dad found out early Sunday that there was going to be a full moon and a lunar eclipse.  So he stayed up late to watch it.  We had plenty of clouds, but every once in awhile there was a gap in the clouds.  So Dad saw the eclipse.  He tried to take pawtographs of the eclipse, but they just didn't turn out.  We did get a pawtograph hours before the eclipse of the full moon through the clouds.  A full moon in January is called a "Wolf Moon."  We were howling mad and told Dad it should be either a Husky Moon or a Collie Moon.

We found out the next day that Sasha the Rat Terrorist crossed the Rainbow Bridge earlier on the 20th.  Sasha was good friends with Essex and Deacon.  She had left Key West in March 2011, so neither Sherman or Gemini had met her.  Thinking of Sasha brought back plenty of pawsome memories for Dad.  He told of plenty of them on Monday, while he was off for Martin Luther King Day.  We had to smile about her playing with Deacon and Dad talking about those Days from many Dog Moons ago.  We are sure she is playing with Essex and Deacon.

We saw that lunar eclipse also, partly cloudy at first, but then the clouds cleared and moved south. Temp was very cold at 1F and we were peeing ice cubes with excitement as the moon totally eclipsed and turned a dusky brownish-orange. We were inside and outside several times to watch the eclipse progress. Last time we headed in, we glanced at the thermometer to see it reading a bone-chilling -5F!!! Definitely the coldest eclipse outing we've ever weathered! We had to count our fingers and toes to make sure they were all still there!!!!!

We r sorry to hear of Sasha. She was a happy little girl full of spunk. lt was so much fun to watch her and Deacon play together at Angel Paws the times we visited for Christmas. May her and all our dog and cat friends who've crossed the Rainbow Bridge forever play together under warm suns and in grassy pastures!

We had too much pouring rain here so we didn't get to moon anyone.

We had clouds and snow. I'm sorry to hear about dog dads friend Sasha. What a sweet face she had
