We have been distracted the last four days cyber-paw pals. On Saturday, Grand-Paw (Dog Dad's Father) was admitted to the hospital with a low grade fever. When we called on Sunday, he could only say a couple sentences. We were worried.

On Monday when we checked in with Dog Dad's brudder and sistahs, they told us Grand-Paw was going to get a cat-scan, MRI and some blood work. They relayed that Dad was talking better. We are not sure what type of cat was did that scan, but we hope it is like Rosie and not some strange cat. The cat-scan showed Grand-Paw had a hemotoma about the size of a golf ball near the frontal lobe of his brain.

Deacon: I think it was a goofball.

Essex: It was a golf ball size silly. That is one of those little white balls that people hit with a big stick, so that can go after it and hit it with another big stick.

Deacon: Sounds like a goofball to me.

Today, we found out he is talking and doing much better. Grand-Paw turns 90 next week and is a World War II veteran. He is a nice guy and loves giving us scratches behind the ear. We are hoping for a quiet Thanksgiving where we spend lots of time at Angel Paws Dog Park.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Deacon

Gee Collies, we hope your grand-paw is doing OK. We understand how your Dad must worry. Our grand-paw is 97 and Mom gets really upset whenever he doesn't sound right.

Wirey woofs and good thoughts for your grand-paw!!
