The grandchildren have grown up, apt to have their attention drawn to their own deeply interesting pursuits. Which is as nature intended.
Grandpuppies are another story. My three are all rescue dogs and boys. They love to rough-house and be adorable and eat and take long walks and cuddle. And they try very, very hard to understand their human family: Amber, Todd and Arianna.
But whether or not they do understand, they always love….and pose delightfully for their Mama’s camera.

Their latest addition is Leo. He is 3 years old and was rescued just 2 months ago from an animal shelter in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He probably did not have a normal puppyhood as evidenced by his habit of hoarding piles of toys onto the recliner and then snuggling in with them.
Winston came to the family from a shelter in Ohio almost 3 years ago. He is mostly a gentleman and has made a remarkable personality change. When he first arrived he was very guarded and kept to himself. Since then he has done a 180 to be a very loving and protective companion.
Along with Winston came Hobbes, his son. If ever there was a loveable rascal, it’s him. He is the baby of the family and is sometime called “Puppy” even though he is almost 3 years old. He’s also a treasured member of the Fam! And the most inquisitive.
I might just have to take a trip East to visit with them again. Oh….and the rest of the family too.
Ever Grateful ~ Annie
