Gemini Is Five

Dad started singing Happy Barkday to me when he woke up this morning.  I was like enough singing it is walk time.  He gave me a big hug before and after our walk.  Then I got some extra dog treats and a frost paw this morning.  By the Great Dane, I was in heaven.  The only thing that would have made it better was if Sherman was here.  I could feel his spirit.
Enjoying My Fifth Barkday
I excited about having a younger cousin coming to live with us.  The plan is to travel to Holmhaven on 12 July to pick up Normandy.  It will be pawtastic to have another collie in the house.  We can hide out under the table and make plans.  I will do my best to teach Normandy the way of the collie.

Our relative Brave Star (AKA Buddy), dropped us a line congratulating us on Normandy coming to live in Key West.  We even got a pawtograph from Buddy.  Buddy lives with cats and even will wear a hat.  I wonder if he knows the "Cat in the hat"?

Happy Barkday to me and Dog Speed to all of woo.

Normandy Nose

Gemini took her time telling Dad which one was Normandy.  If you guessed pup number one, woo were correct.  Dad said he should of known it was the one because of the dirt on the nose.  You can see it in a pawtograph of Sherman.  That made both of us smile.  Normandy will be coming to live with us, sometime after 7 July.

17 June 2020 - A Time To Choose

One of these three is Normandy.  Dad said he is going to sleep on it before he tells everypaw.  This is bringing Dad memories of an old TV show the "Dating Game."  Gemini asking the question "How do you feel about playing in the yard?"

They all are handsome and are my sister Shannon's sons.  I can hear Normandy barking, "Auntie Gemini is it treat time yet?

14 June 2020 - Puppy Pawtographs

We are started to get excited.  The puppies are getting bigger and are out side now.  I remember being there when I was small.  Now Normandy is out there with his litter mates having fun.  I can't wait until Normandy comes to live with me in Key West.  It will be fun to have someone to play collie games with.

Puppies At Three Weeks

Bow the puppies are growing fast.  I'm looking forward to having a nephew around.  Dad is grrreat, but he doesn't play dog games very well.

Sherman Would Have Been Nine

Bowsers, it is hard to believe that Uncle Sherman would have been nine years old today.   Dad and I miss the big guy.  He was special since the day he was born.  He had a huge hole to fill with the tragic passing of Deacon.   
Sherman's First Week In Key West
Fort Sherman (Under The Table)
I followed him around when I first met him at Holmhaven.  Then when I came home to Key West, Sherman and I played.  We ran, chased and would tussle.  Dad would laugh as Sherman rolled on his back and I would bounce on top of him.

Happy Barkday Sherman, Dad and I love you.  We know you, Essex and Deacon and watching over the pack.
