Catching Up

We kept meaning to post, but life kept getting in the way.  Sigh.

Dad was off Tuesday last week and our buddy Gandalf stopped over while his Dad was golfing.  Dad was home because the check engine light came on inside the collie-mobile.  Gandalf was surprised how big I had gotten.  Here is a link to my first meeting with Gandalf

Sherman, Gemini & Gandalf
Earlier last week Gemini was playing with Sky, Dad noted Gemini had a bloody mouth and Sky's Mom saw blood on her fur.  First they thought Gemini bit her tongue, but they were wrong.  She was loosing a tooth.  Dad tried to grab the tooth, but Gemini swallowed it.  BOL.

Thanksgiving, we got to sniff around one of Dad's friends house, while he visited.  It sure was pawsome to sniff some new smells.

Hopefully, we will post again soon.

A Gray Day

It has been a gray day outside, which fit in perfect with Dads mood.

First there is a pawtograph of the two of us together.  As you can see we get along quite well.  We have the whole house but we like laying next to each other.  Dad loves to watch us rest and play.
These Two Collies Are Good Friends 

Dad's gray mood comes from the fact Essex crossed the bridge exactly two years ago today.  Essex could read Dad's mind the best of all the collies that adopted him.  There was absolutely no doubt he was her hooman.  When he looks at Gemini, he sees her.  Then of course Essex's brother Buddy is in her blood line.  Having the two of us around limit the gray days to only a couple days a year.
Deacon & Essex Were Good Chums
Sherman & Essex Got Along Too
We will take care of Dad.  Gemini is barking at him right now telling him she needs to go outside.

Lazy Saturday

Today has been a lazy day.  Gemini woke Dad up extra early.  Then time just slipped away, except for our time at the dog park.  It was only us and Boomer the boxer.  Dad was tired, probably from watching the news coming out of France late yesterday, Friday the 13th.  All of the families are in our prayers.
Gemini & Duck
Sherman and Gemini get along fine.  Dad will frequently laugh while we play.  It is good to see him smile.  Gemini is getting bigger and Dad got her a toy duck.  She enjoys playing with the duck.  .

Pawtographs - Fall 2015

Gemini keeps growing and we have gotten behind on posting pawtographs.  The collies pal Red is back in town.  He sure is a lot grayer than Sherman remembers him.  Red will tell us stories about Essex and Deacon when we slow down, which isn't very often.

Gemini hasn't picked up on fence patrol, which is okay with Dad.  Watching her bounce on Sherman makes all the hoomans laugh.  Friday we went to the vet and Gemini weighed 28 lb, she has more than doubled in weight.  Well enjoy the pawtographs.

Happy Collieween - 2015

We hope everyone had a pawsome Collieween.  That isn't us below, but we love the pawtograph.
Our Favorite Collieween Pawtograph
Gemini continues to amaze Dad.  She went out with him for awhile during Collieween to meet all the little hoomans trick or treating!  She was calm.  She sat down by Dad, sniffed some of the little hoomans.  No jumping, no barking.  Dad was proud.  That is no small thing as Dad went through sixteen bags of candy.
