Thank Heavens For My Grand Puppies And My Family Who Rescued Them (#375)

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.

These photos are all courtesy of Amber and her iPad.  Enjoy!

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.

Winston not actually liking the Snow but enduring it.

Winston….. not actually liking the snow; but enduring it.


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.

Hobbes (or just "Puppy") watching your every move.

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

    Wonderful handful! Rescue pups are so rewarding as they learn to trust. We’ve had several (Daisy is my first puppy in 25 years) some of them with the most appalling histories. Hope you see them and their humans soon. 🙂

    I miss Mr Sammo (my Rottweiler mix). I had to leave him behind when I moved to Ozark, AL 3 years ago. IF I ever buy a place I’ll have another dog…

    The toys all around is so cute. My son still calls my dog puppy and she is a year old now. I told him she is not a puppy now but he thinks she is.
