A Grandma's Visit - Camera Critters and Pet Pride, Saturday, July 31, 2010
I went up to West Sacramento July 19th to spend three days with the newlyweds ( my
middle son, Alex, wed his beautiful, Laura, on May 7th ). It's hard to believe that two
full months have already passed since that joyous occasion. Since Laura works twelve
hour shifts as a paramedic and Alex has a bizarre work schedule ( 4AM to 1PM ) and
is still working on his degree, I went armed with some provisions for dinner the first night.
I made a big bowl of my special potato salad, marinated a London broil and baked a scrumption banana walnut coffee cake.
I was worried that my granddogs might not even remember me since I don't get to visit
very often. It was such a nice surprise to be greeted warmly by them. They are really
such sweet dogs. I always feel so guilty because I did not want the kids to get Taffy from
the shelter. I protested because she was a pit bull and I was fearful that she would be a
mean, agressive dog. She is the total opposite. She has the most gentle, loving
Bucky and Taffy, my granddogs
Ouch, Bucky, stop biting my legs!
Bucky loves to play with rings, Taffy rarely play with him
Whoops, I'd better get this away!
I have to lie down to do this.
Maybe if I put my head on the ring, Bucky won't be able to get it away.
We hate it when Mommy leaves for work - she goes for too long.
Grandma, what is taking you so long at that computer? Pay attention to me!
I like to snuggle with my grandma.
Taffy: Don't I have pretty feet?
I'm getting depressed - Grandma's blogging, Mom's at work, and Dad's studying.
He's been working on that calculus for HOURS! Poor me.
Oh, boy, did Daddy say walk? I can sit nicely.
I'm waiting like a good boy for my leash!
Worn out from the walk.
