Arrival Story: After losing Turner we thought we could never have another dog, let alone a puppy. We started to "just look" and found some pups at a rescue. Went to see them a couple of times, but still wasn't sure. Went to Petfest 2011 and Grunt (formerly Marine) was in a pen with one of the original pups we were interested in. Grunt walked right up to hubby waggin his tail and smiling. Then he came over to me. I knew we were hooked from that moment on.
Bio: Grunt and his siblings were the result of his momma being taken to a friends while her human was away. The friend "accidentially" let the female breed with her male pit. DUH!! We believe the pups were brought to Joyful Rescues over the Memorial Day weekend. As their names were all after the armed forces. Grunt's original name was Marine. We, of course, changed it to Grunt. Grunt is so steady in personality, he loves Darcy to pieces and has brought her personality out beyond her training. He's working his healing magic on hubby and I. Making the sun shine in our home again. We just love him!
So mom went and got my grandma. She has this thing with 4 wheels and a seat that she pushes around. She says it helps her walk. So I move when I need to and lay next to her when she's sitting on the seat. I sit near her so she can pet me. She says she cannot feel with her fingers and uses her whole hand to pet me. She says I'm so gentle and that is why she loves me!
Lately grandma has been laying in her bed. Something about nerve pain in her leg. She just moans and says things. When mom's at work I check on grandma to make sure she's alright. She tells me things. Things that I cannot repeat because I'm her friend and she trusts me to keep our conversations private.
I'm glad she came for a visit. I'm worried about grandma, but she tells me she'll be alright.
During our walk I started to eat grass. Then I was coughing. Then I ate more grass. :( my belly hurts... When we got home I drank some water and then ate a little bit of food. I was laying on mom like I do on the sofa. Then I barfed. All of the grass and the food came up. Bleh! Mom took me outside and I ate more grass. :( Then the phone guy showed up (2 days early) and I was on duty. No mom's at work and I'm snoozing on her bed. Mom is worried about me. But I'll be fine!
ETA: Mom just saw that I'm DDP! Woohooo! Hopefully that'll make me feel better! :)
What a day! It was beautiful today! Mom took us for a walk. When we got back she put blankets on the deck and on the ground out front! Me and Darcy were laying in the sun. Our head were up but our eyes were closed! It felt soooooo good to be warmed by the sun! When mom and dad left for work me and Darcy were snuggled on the bed. All is right today!
Mom said tomorrow will be more of the same! Woohooo!!
