Anyway, Grandpa got super sick almost two weeks ago, and he passed away yesterday morning. Mom's got really leaky eyes these days. Grandpa was Mom's daddy. I've tried to help Mom by being a super good girl at all of the sleepovers I've been on. I guess doggies aren't allowed in critical care units in hospitals, so I couldn't go with Mom on all of her trips to see Grandpa. She was gone all night long several times, too. So that's why I stayed at Snickers' house and then Molly's house, too. And Mom got those reports that I've been really good each time she's been away. (She told me that Snickers' dogsitters even want me to come back!)
I did get to go see Grandpa once when he was in the nursing home. That was fun. LOTS of people wanted to pet me. Mom said that a woman even came to Grandpa's room the next day, looking for me. I was quite popular.
Mom doesn't have many pictures of me with my Grandpa, but she did find these two. In the first one, Grandpa was watching Hossy and I chew on Hossy's huge rawhide bone.
And later that day, Hossy and I both took naps with Grandpa. (I'm that little white ball beside him on the couch.)
Goodbye, Grandpa! We love you and we'll miss you. Please give Lexi-Lou lots of pets and lots of cookies from Mom and me.
