Camera Critters #139 & Pet Pride - The Granddogs at Thanksgiving - December 4, 2010
My middle son, Alex, and his wife, Laura, had Thanksgiving dinner at her grandmother's
house but they stopped by first to see me and their brothers and left my granddogs with
us at my request. I hadn't seen them in awhile and they always cheer me up. I sure
needed something to improve my spirits. I had been discharged from the hospital
November 9th and had four weeks of a very restrictive diet ahead of me which meant
that, while I could certainly cook a Thankgiving dinner and all the trimmings for my sons,
about all of it I could eat was the turkey.

Finally, though, she does remember that pit bull blood flows through her veins and she
lets out a barely perceptible growl and shows Bucky her teeth. He then backs off and
leaves her alone for awhile! Shawn, my oldest son ( forty on the 17th ) just lies back
and enjoys their antics.
Taffy is such a pretty girl!

to see if his company will allow it so he can donate it again to "Locks for Love" - an
organization that giveshair to cancer patients and others who lose their hair secondary
to various diseases )
Bucky is quite a handsome fellow but he is much bigger than Taffy and he is so
energetic. I couldn't even try to take him for a walk or I'd be flying around the
neighborhood. Jeremy thinks racing after Bucky is just what I need for my weight loss
'Hey, what's that I hear" An angel choir? No, Shawn's just serenading us with his
guitar. My uncleis pretty talented!" - "Check out my muscles, by the way. I'm really
buff." - "Wait a minute, what's going on! Is there a prowler in the house? Bucky is
Cool it, Bucky, you're going to hurt Shawn's feelings!
"Stop barking, Bucky, you're starting to scare me. Haven't you heard that quote
that music soothes the savage beast?"
"My earts hurt!"
"I'm going to start barking the blues any minute now!"
"Taffy, run for your life!
