We hope that everyone had a pawsome Veterans Day.  Dad did some yard work and house cleaning today.  We always enjoy having him around, instead of at work. 

Originally  Veterans Day was called Armistice Day in memory of the signing of the Armistice that ended the First World War.  That ended that War at the 11:00 AM, 11 November 1918, or 11-11-11 (11th hour or the 11th day or the 11th month.  President Woodrow Wilson had us celebrate 11 November 1919 as Armistice Day.  Then in 1926 President Calvin Coolidge signed every 11 November into a holiday.  In 1954 President Eisenhower had the name changed to Veterans Day.

From Wikipedia
 Sherman is growing up quickly.  He is just a bit smaller than Essex.  He is a brave lad.  When a Great Dane came to visit, he calmly walked right up to it.  He is quick to roll on his back, but rarely does Sherman tuck his tail.   He is becoming a great collie.  We think his late Uncle Deacon would have been proud of him, just like his Great Auntie Essex.

We call November 11, Remembrance Day up here in Canada, and we all wear red poppies that the Canadian Legion makes.

Sherman sure is growing--doesn't look as puppy-like anymore!!
