A New Coat

My dad bought me a new coat for the winter. It's got a faux fur collar and down and feathers inside and a great warm fleece pile that's next to my fur. 

So Sam, what do you think?

Well dad, it's very nice and cosy...

But it's a little warm for today.

Let's go home and get the lighter jacket. Okay Sam. But the jacket does look good on you buddy.

We Remember Wupper

My mom and dad have that "far-away" look again in their eyes again. It's that's as though they can see something just over the horizon, that zone between the visible and invisible. Thirteen years ago, they lost their first kid. His name was Wupper and he was a "problem child" - opinionated, vocal, rascally, playful and hard of hearing. Mom and dad miss still miss their first boy. The front porch light is on again. Good night Wupper. You can visit anytime. Love mom and dad.

We Remember Max

Today's the 13th anniversary of my mom and dad's first big Sheltie kid. Max stood much taller than the standard sized Shelties. He was a bit of a recluse, often hiding in the large closet when he was inside the house. He lived a great 15 years with mom and dad. It seems like it was a long time but as we all know, it's never long enough.

We love and miss you Max. We'll have the porch light on for you tonight.
