Ever Vigilant

Essex ever vigilant
Well, cyber-paw pals there has not been much to write about. The summer has been just slowly sizzling on. Not much to chase at the dog park, somehow few people come down to Southern Florida for summer vacation.
Ollie's Mom is doing fine. She has a bad wrist sprain and a slight leg sprain. So she is walking fine but having problems grasping objects in her one hand. She wanted us to tell Mika & Wall-e thanks for asking.
The fence wasn't fixed as of Monday but we were told soon. Dad can't wait until it is fixed. He is worried about the small dogs escaping through the huge gap and the big dogs knocking it down if they run into it.
Deacon chews on treat
We did survive 4 July. Essex doesn't like fireworks. While she doesn't pee or howl, she will try to find the quietest room or stay right next to Dog Dad. Guess he must be her protector. Deacon could care less about fireworks. The amazing thing is thunder doesn't seem to bother either Collie. Until another day cyber-paw pals.
Dog Speed,
Essex & Deacon

Yeap...That is a very attentive pose. Glad all went smoothly during the 4th of July fireworks. I don't like fireworks either.

We think it was the worse year for fireworks!!! Mom says it sounded like being the middle of a bombing blitz!!! The air was filled with fireworks and you could smell them everywhere too. Luckily they don't bother me nor do storms but my little buddy Franklin the corgi had to have sedatives to get him through the night and even though he was a sleep her was still trembling and shaking.

Katie thinks fireworks are her responsibility to chase away, so she barks and barks till she wears herself out. Wears us out too! :) Glad you guys are doing well down there in the heat! We had a pretty great 4th in Alabama, cooler and dryer than usual. Then we got two days of heavy rain. But it all worked out!
