Rosie Crosses The Bridge

Rosie, the cat, knew Essex, Deacon, Sherman and me.  She had plenty of tails to tell about visiting collies.  She got along best with Essex.  The two were not best pals, but they definitely got along.  The calm personality of Essex made all kinds of creatures calm.  She let Deacon sniff her.  Sherman and I loved to chase cats if they ran from us.
Essex and Rosie
Rosie lived over twenty years with Dad's sister.  She was a pawsome house cat and was loved by her family.  She enjoyed looking out the window and chilling out.  She was a house cat and would sleep by her hooman.  Recently, she was starting to have  kidney failure.  She had problems keeping down food and was sick.  So today the vet helped her cross the bridge.  She probably came up to Essex to say hi, but stayed away from Sherman and Deacon.

Her family will miss her.  Dad and I will miss her, when we visit.

An Interesting Week

It has been an interesting week here in Key West.  

While I was at the Dog Park, a pawson mentioned that the International Space Station was going to fly over around 6:30 PM.  I sat down with Dad and scanned the sky.  Bowser, it looked pawsome flying over Angel Paws folks.  We watched it for a whole six minutes.  

On Wednesday I was reunited with a collie pal that came down to visit.  McGee was here two years ago and returned.  It was two years ago that Sherman and I met McGee.  My tail was wagging when we met.

Then today we met up with a sheltie pal named Mac.  I met him last year.  I told Dad he needs to bring his camera, so he can take a pawtograph of Mac.  He looks like a tiny version of Sherman.  

Both McGee and Mac asked about Uncle Sherman.  I relayed the sad news, and they told me they were sorry and hope a new collie comes my way soon.  

We will try to get some pawtographs in the next couple days.  

Dog Speed,

I wish all our cyber-paw pals a Barky New Year.  We hope 2020, "The Year of the Rat" is good to every paw.   2019 had some good memories, but November's bridge crossing of Uncle Sherman will make it a sad year for the tow of us.  We look forward to new adventures and the arrival of a sable Holmhaven puppy in the spring.  We will continue to visit Angel Paws and meeting new friends.

As you can see it was quite a busy year.  I need to post some pictures of our Angel Paws dog pals.  We have two pals named Dorey and Brady.  They show up quite often at the park.  Their Mom is from Ohio like Dad.  Dorey is a rescue from Hurricane Dorian.  I am looking forward to a new Holmhaven collie puppy joining our pack this year.  We will keep you posted after the pup is born.

Barky New Year to all,
