Yesterday we drove to NH to see Grandpa. He is still in the rehab facility. He seemed a lot stronger than the last time we visited, but he is still too thin. He plans to go home on Monday, which is tomorrow. We will visit again in a couple of weeks and mom will be calling him often to check in on him. I saw another dog as we pulled up to the rehab facility. It was a doberman. He wasn't very friendly. Other than that we had a quite visit. He went down to the sun room. Another patient and her family came in, but they didn't stay too long. We went to the pet store when we got home and did our weekly shopping. Mom got me a butterfly cookie! I ate it!!

I went to Tufts animal hospital this morning. They took blood and urine samples to be used in a study on blood coagulation in greyhounds. My friend, Ninja and his dad, Jeff, came too. Ninja and I were able to get our exams together. That made it nicer. I think mom and dad enjoyed talking to Jeff too. They gave me a pretty red bandage and Ninja got a green one. They gave use lots of treats. It didn't hurt. I hope that they will be able to help other greyhounds from this study. I am honored to have been able to help. After the study we went to Petco. Mom and dad got another litter box to put in the downstairs bathroom. Afterwards mom and dad went into the dollar store. Mom was looking for a costume for me for Greyhound Friend's Open House next week. Guess I am going as a hula dancer!! I will tell you all about it so stay tuned!!

Mom and dad decided I deserved a treat so they took me to the dog park this afternoon. It is the one in Weston, MA. I can go off leash there! There are beautiful wooded trails, streams and large wide open fields! The weather was perfect! Spring is in full bloom. Mom says it is the prettiest spring ever. I think I agree. There were lots of dogs and their people there. I kept mom and dad in sight the whole time. It was a nice treat. When we got home we all went out to the back yard. I helped mom weed the garden. Daddy is weed whacking because the lawn mower charger doesn't work. He hopes to get a new one tomorrow.
