Second Blogaversary

Two years of blogging and
just back from Angel Paws

Hello cyber-paw pals, today we celebrated our two-year blogaversary with post number 193. Today was a hot day and we rested in the house enjoying the A/C until about an hour before sunset. Then we went to Angel Paws. Dad promised some cheddar collies by Saturday. We’ll keep a cold nose on him until he delivers.

At this time last year we were visiting in Ohio. If you remember that post Dad saved Deacon from Rocky, the pit-bull. We happily report, today was a fun day and nothing like that happened.

It is amazing this all started because of post by our shirt tail cousin Tosca. That was the first blog post Dad read, it was Tosca titled “Lassie is Boy in Drag.” He went to reread it again today and laughed just like the first time. In our first month of posting we were visited by Tosca, Opy, Opie & Gomer and Buster from DWB. Tosca, Opie & Gomer rarely post and we miss them. In that first month late Great (Great) Uncle Bobby's mom visited us. We have to admit we never thought we would meet so many good people.

The picture from our first post was before we went digital.
The photo was actually taken in mid-December 2006

We end this blogaversary post with the same last lines from our first post. “May your tail wag, your belly be full, and may you have a forever family to rub your tummy and scratch behind your ears.”

Dog Speed,

Essex & Deacon
