This week we have come to the letter O, which logically for me, and for the season, should be Oak tree, but I am saving that for a later post on fall foliage. Instead, the letter O stands for an accomplishment . . .
That's right--little Bear, my youngest Granddog---er, Grandson, as Daughter prefers I call him-- successfully completed his first puppy school course and passed with flying colors. No, that is not Daughter in the photo, and I apologize for the quality of the picture; I imagine she took it with her camera phone. Daughter was very proud of her "son's" accomplishment and immediately e-mailed the photo to Grandma. Daughter, who has no human children, is a little sensitive about family dynamics and continually reminds me that I should treat all my grandchildren the same, regardless of their species. So I thought it was only fair that since my last post featured my human grandchildren, I should give equal time to one of my canine grands.
In case you don't recognize the facial features, Bear is a Mastiff puppy. Did I mention he is only 5 months old?
I haven't had a chance to see him in person yet, but I will be visiting Daughter and her family in Arizona in early December. I'm looking forward to taking Bear for walks, so I do hope the obedience school training included being led on a leash. The last time I visited her, her pug Odie was so happy to see me that he slept on the air mattress with me every night. This time I will have my own room with a queen size bed! But I am a little concerned now--today Daughter called me today for advice on dog food--apparently Bear is having a little problem with indigestion and flatulence. The bed may not be big enough for the three of us . . .
