When Dad got home yesterday, he found a box addressed to us. We were so excited that we chased our tails. When he told us it was from his brother Stevie-grrr-Wonder, our eyes got really big. What could be coming all the way from Ohio for us?

We opened the box, and found two Australian Dog-Hats, a Pineapple and Kangaroo dog toy. Dad has asked Reilly's Mum where she found his hat. Dad told his brother Stevie-grrr-Wonder, and the rest is pawstory. Kangaroos are Dad’s second most favorite animal after a Collies of course. The reason has something to do with what a baby Kangaroo is called.

More importantly, we have a hat to wear so we can pay tribute to ANZAC Day with our cyber-paw pals in Australia and New Zealand. We can wear the hats when we feel down under. If Dad takes up on our hint he will order a carryout of steaks at a restaurant called the "Outback." Do you think that hint is too subtle? Dad did you hear us? Dad??

Essex and Deacon

A package for the Collies?

Look at the dog stuff inside.

Essex looking Pawsome.

Deacon is thinking of a big thick steak.

This pineapple is pretty neat.
I guess the Roos are just smaller Up-Over.
