Today Twenty Years Ago

Bowser, where has time went.  We've been meaning to post, but there has not been much to post about.  
Essex Explores Her Yard for the First Time
Dad was telling us about 20 years ago.  If you read this blog, you know that Essex came to live with Dad 23 December 2003.  He told us how he had called Lil earlier to set up a pickup date.  The drive up to Miami and back.  Meeting Essex for the first time.  How when he was pulling out of Holmhaven how she tried to crawl up his arm to go out the window.  He calmed her with his steady soothing voice.  
Check To See If Any Pup Lives Next Door
They got out of the car halfway home, so Essex could take a potty break.  When the got home, she explored her yard.  The tiny pup grew up to be an outstanding collie.  As Dad gets misty eyed, he gives us both a hug and prepares for our visit to Angel Paws.

We'll keep Dad company tonight and he'll protect us from the booming fireworks.  Hope everypaw has an awesome New Years.

Dog Speed,

Gemini and Normandy

Yep, Happy New Year 2 u 2! It's amazing how long ago that really was, can't believe it. Just seems like yesterday. Essex was cute as a pup, and smart as a grown up dog. She will always be remembered as "Secretary of da Fence," as her memorial plaque states.

She was a very very good girl.
