I dunno. Mom says don't worry, but my feelings are hurt. Here's what happened.
Mom was at work when grandpa arrived. But dad was here. Grandpa pulled up and me and Darcy went to greet him. I was a little shy at first but put on my cutie face and said hello. Well grandpa never said anything to me, never looked at me, nothing. :( So after grandpa put his stuff in his room I greeted him again with a waggin tail. He just looked at me. Let me tell you he looks mean. You know how some people just have a mean look? Well that's grandpa. He finally pet me some and I was happy. Later on grandpa was sitting on the sofa. I was looking at him and he just stared. Never said a word, then pointed his finger at me and said You, you... Me what? He scared me and I growled and barked at him. Stop it you're scaring me! Dad called me over and grabbed a toy to play with me, but I was still concerned, me what?
Well we went to bed and then mom came home after midnight. I stuck to her like glue. We went outside and I felt so much better. We played for a bit and then went to bed.
At 3 am I heard the bathroom door close and I growled and barked. Mom said it was alright it was grandpa. I wasn't sure it was alright and growled some more. When grandpa came out of the bathroom he said, "Boy he's wonderful" in a sarcastic tone to mom.
Up again at 5 am I growled when I heard the bathroom door. It was him again. Well needless to say mom didn't sleep after that.
Mom went in to see grandpa and brought some pupperoni (my favorite). She stood next to dad and treat me. Then she asked dad to give me some treats. He said, "No he snarled at me. He's been hanging around with that other dog - he's to afraid. He showed his fangs at me." Mom said, calmly we can fix it give him some treats. Grandpa refused. Uggghh!
Mom asked dad what happened and he said that grandpa would acknowledge me or treat me and was provoking me with the pointing of the finger at me.
So I stuck with mom and mom made sure I was with her all the time. Grandpa and daddy went hunting up the mountain and mom loaded me with all of our donations to my rescue in the truck and away we went.
She told me I was a good boy and to not be afraid of grandpa that he was "old school" and not friendly. On the way to the rescue mom called in sick at work. She wanted to make sure there was no problems with me and grandpa. We got to Joyful Rescue and the owner and some volunteers greeted us. When they realized who mom was the asked about me. When they saw me they loved on me big time! Score!! When I left the rescue I had a bacterial skin infection and sores all over and now that mom is giving me MSM my fur is so shiney and my skin is beautiful. And boy have I grown since I left! I'm 53 pounds now and still growing...
Well the rescue was soo happy to get all of their donations, it took 4 trips to empty the truck... :) Then mom had a few more stops along the way so I was her road dog for the day! Good fun!
When we got back to the house and me and Darcy played like crazy! It was good to just run around! Then I was pretty tired, I didn't have my nappie because I was with mom. So I settled down for a snooze.
Dad and grandpa came off the mountain and I stuck by mom just like she said to.
The next day mom, dad and grandpa went to go see the elk and were gone most of the day. Yippee!! That meant Darcy and I could chill out! And we did.
Grandpa left on Monday, he tried to give me a cookie and I was still leary, now he wanted me to be nice after giving me mean looks and not talking to me.... I took the cookie and wagged my tail at him. Grandpa shook his head, got in his car and left.
I don't think Grandpa likes me. :(

Don't worry Grunt, someday he'll come around and realize what he's been missing out on!
Aww I'm sorry Grunt. Maybe someday he'll come around?
it seems that Grandpa doesn't like much at all, you have Mom and Dad and Darcy you will be just fine!!!
You know what, Grunt? The one thing us doggies can do, and do well, is win people over with our unconditional love. You'll do the same with your grandpa.
I know a little bit how you feel, Grunt. My grandma and grandpa shoo me away from them when they visit because I shed. That's not my fault. The worst is they were my first mom and dad. I used to be happy to see them but now I either stay on mom or go in my kennel when they visit.
Awww Grunt don't worry too much about Grandpa. Some folks just aren't dog people. Can't say I understand it any better than you but maybe in time he will realize what a good dog you are and warm right up to you. At least he made a peace offering of a cookie that's a start right?
Don't worry about it too much Grunt. Aunt Chrissy is kinda like that with me but, she will pet me from time to time. She lets me know Monty is her favorite though but, still loves me. I am Uncle Benny's favorite but, he still loves Monty. It takes time for people to warm up to super cute and charming puppies.
Hmmmmmmmm maybe he's jealous cuzz his hooman loves you and he feels he's lost him/her to you? We love unconditional so he'll come around. Wish you lived wif me cuzz my Grampy is awesome and plays and even rolls in the yard wif me. You have your Pawrents and Darcy and you'll be fine. I bet your Gramp brings you another cookie on hims next visit!
what's MSM? your coat is sure beautiful now!
steal Grampas shoes and chew them up really good until they are shredded. He'll like that and treat you for sure!
