Grand-Paw Update

We arrived safe in Northern Ohio yesterday. Grand-Paw has lost a lot of weight but is fairly lucid at times. My Dad's three sisters and his brudder were there at the nursing home. We even sniffed him and Grand-Paw gave us a weak smile and we could see his eyes light up.

We got to walk around the nursing home and we visited several people. Deacon got a lot of attention from strangers, while I just don't trust strangers.

We even visit our collie friends Cassie & Hattie last night. The weather here is a lot cooler than Key West. We'll it is time to go. It is time for a walk.

Essex & Deacon

We are glad you arrived safely in Ohio. DogMom said she is sad for you even though she didn't know your Grand-Paw. Our grandpaw passed away 11 years ago this coming Friday. She still misses him. Gomer crossed the rainbow bridge last year on this day. I miss him.

Hope you both help dogdad handle things. Wish I was there, too.
