800th Post

Bowser, it is hard to believe that we made it to 800 posts.  We are glad to announce on this special post, that our beloved Angel Paws has reopened.  Once more the collie paws touch those howled grounds.  We were happy to see the park.  Yesterday, it was only us and Ruby.  Today, Norm's favorite pal, Luna, was there.  So lots of chasing and playing.  Dad didn't spend as much time as usual because the football games were on.  Below are some pawtographs of us and some of the things that are in the park.

The entrance to the park has gravel instead of dirt.  So it looks a lot nicer.
Gravel Path and Inside the Pen
New Sign
Probably the most important thing they added to the park is a place fur P-Mail.

Below are some of the agility set.  Dad will have to bring some treats to see if we will do any of them.

Angel Paws Closed This Week

 We came into Angel Paws today and saw this sign.  Our beloved park is  closing for the week.  They are doing some renovations at the park.  While we are happy about the renovations, we will miss going to Angel Paws.  

Angel Paws will be closed Tuesday and reopen Saturday
The past month there have been a lot of pups at the park.  Dad is socially distancing from the other hoomans, while we play.  Norm will play with the other pups, while Gem will bark at every paw.  We with both bother Dog Dad when it is time to go to the park.  Below are two pawtographs taken at Angel Paws.  The first one we are all playing.  Gemini barks at everypaw, while the rest of us play.  Axel will play with us sometimes.

2020 in Review

We wish all our cyber-paw pals a Barky New Year.  We hope 2021, "The Year of the Ox" is a whole letter better than 2020.   It was a year dominated by COVID, pawlitics and far to many bridge crossings.  Gemini look forward to teaching Normandy the way of the collie.  Since we returned to Angel Paws in August there have been a lot of new friends we have met.

Barky New Year to all,

Gemini & Normandy
