Puppy Love



We welcome Chelsea's new puppy into the fam.

Meet Charlie

(a Portuguese Water Dog/pup)


It's hard for me to believe that I'm already a
Puppy Grammy.  


Chelsea has been talking about getting a puppy
 for about 2 years
and last weekend,
she pulled the trigger.

I respectfully tried
to explain why she should hold off her decision,  
but she came at me with both barrels...
and I ran out of ammo. 

It's not like I don't love dogs.
After all, 
we had Duncandog for 14 years.
(50 Percent Portuguese Water Dog/50 percent human being)

But 
with the Mega love and companionship of a dog
also comes the Mega responsibility and poopy scooping.

I remember back in the day when our kids asked incessantly for a dog.
Finally for Christmas 
Santa delivered them each …
a Gund dog, with a collar and leash. 

 The stuffed version bought us some time...
but apparently Big C isn't buying that anymore.


Anywhoooo….


 I'm very excited to be a Puppy Grammy and
I look forward to spending time with Charlie
so I can spoil him rotten.
But
 as soon as things get out of control..
(NO Charlie...NO barking, NO chewing, NO whining)….
it's right back to Mommy.

And that, 
 is the beauty of being a 
Puppy Grammy.


Good Luck, Chelsea,
 with your adorable

Sweet Charlie.

Charlie is adorable. Reminds me of my Sammy when he was a baby! So awesome for you to have another portugese water dog in the family. I can't wait to meet him!
