Sleepy Time

Dad often chuckles at me when he finds me sleeping.  He says that I am sleep in some strange positions, and I've done that since I was a pup.   Here are some pawtographs of me sleeping.  Dad has caught me with my nose under the throw rug, head under the bed and other strange places.  Unlike Grrreat Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon, I don't sleep belly up.

Do you sleep in funny positions and places?

Little Buddies

Angel Paws has been slow this year.  I have a couple new chums I want to introduce you too.  The first is Kingo.   Kingo is a nine year old mixed breed and is bi-lingual.  His pawrents are from Canada, so he knows both French and English.  He likes to play with a basketball,, which is a sight to see, because the basketball is bigger than Kingo.  Kingo seems to like me, though we haven't played with each other.

Next is Gracie a five-month old sheltie puppy.  She is a sable just like me.  I will not see Gracie a lot at Angel Paws, because her Dad worries about bad pups at the park.  Dad told me most of the pups that visit here are really nice.

Hope every paw had a pawsome Sunday.

North-South and a Minion

Early this month one of Dad's chums retired from the Coast Guard.  Looking back over the years and the Dog Park there are plenty of stories to tell.  His chum had a pawsome cake made to look like a minion from the movie.  Dad said the cake was really pawsome.  During the ceremony Dad found out that his chum had circumvented South America crossing the rough seas between at the very Southern Point where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet, as well as being stationed in Alaska.

It was interesting to meet his chum's Mom, who is a really nice lady.  She really liked me and enjoyed talking with Dad.  His chum is a man, who Dad would say the good far out weighs the bad and most important of all cared about what he did.  Both Grrreat Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon liked Dad's chum.  Grrrreat Auntie Essex was a pawsome judge of character.  She always let Dad know if somebody was okay.

For me I got to meet up with Chase and Bailey again.  We got along fine but didn't play with each other.  We did bark up a storm though.

Pirate Day 2014

The Spirit of Grrreat Auntie Essex came to me in the form of  Black Dog, the famous Collieneer.  She tried to tell me the location of Cayo Hueso, the magical bone key.  Just as she was going to tell me, Dog Dad woke me up to take a walk.  I haven't been able to get back to sleep as the thought of all those bones just make my head spin and tummy rumble.

As for Dog Dad, he is thinking of Grrreat Auntie Essex and "Talk Like a Pirate Days"  past.

Collie Hoarder

My good pals Loki and Gracie posted about this about a week ago.  The story makes me and Dog Dad a mad.  I am sure that both Great Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon are angry from across the rainbow bridge.

On Friday 29 August over a hundred collies were rescued from in Tomball, Texas which is near Houston.  The last news article we found was dated 5 September stated the total was a 139.  Many of these collies were in sad shape.

Click here if you are interested in visiting or donating to the Houston Collie Rescue site.

If you want to read more about the incident here are several links.

30 August - Article on Seizure

2 September - Update

5 September - Number now up to 139

Dad has a hard time understanding how a hoooman could do this.  Neither of us want to write much more about this.  I am sure Dog Dad would start using some of that colorful language he learned during his time working in the oil patch.

A Package from Grrrr-Wonder

Things have been hectic lately and there are a number of things to write about.  However, Dad has felt under the weather the last week, there has been plenty of rain and all kinds things for him to take care of.

About a dog moon ago, on 2 September, I got a package in the mail from Dad's Brudder, Stevie Grrrrr-Wonder.  I was interested what was in it and Dad wouldn't tell me anything.  I opened the package and inside it was a toy for me.
Bowsers, A Package For Me
You Put A Plastic Water Bottle Inside, Pawsome
The toy is a fox that you put a plastic water bottle inside.  I love destroying plastic water bottles, so it is fun to play with.  Thanks Stevie-Grrrrr-Wonder.

Hopefully, I can post some more tomorrow.
