Full "Pink" Moon

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave.  Did you catch our buddy Remington's blog yesterday?  He posted a reminder that last night would be the full moon and told us that this month's moon is called the Full Pink Moon (so named for the pink-colored wild ground phlox that's normally in bloom).  Zim and I promised we'd give a listen for Remington's howl coming down from the north, then head out to join him!

So there we were, having a nice, quiet evening, watching that Hercule Poirot guy solve a mystery ...

"Whodunnit, Mom?"

...when I sensed something was about to happen!

"Can you all feel that?!?  It's coming!"

And then it hit!

"Ahhhh-woooOOOOoooo!"

It was time!  We headed outside with Mom and here's what we saw!

That's the moon breaking through the neighbors' tree. It looked HUGE last night!

Definitely something to howl about!

We went out a bit later on, too, and took a clean shot of the moon:

Isn't it gorgeous?

I hope you were able to see the moon wherever you were last night.  And if so - did you give a good howl??!  Ahhh-woooooOOOOooooo!

Luv,
Dave

PS:  I wonder if Remington heard us?

Now SEE? I THOUGHT that Remington and Sasha were kinda LOUD sounding when I took Ernie out to listen last night. I guess I was hearing You and Zim too. I know it was like MUSIC to Our Ears!! And the Moon like Candy to our Eyes.

Happy Easter.

I don't howl at the moon, but I snored at it a whole bunch. That's like a boxer howl. ;)
