Saturday we went to Grandpa's. On Sunday we visited with Grandma! Grandma is daddy's mom. She was having trouble with her computer. The screen was freezing on her. Grandma lives in a retirement center. They have small apartments in a building that kind of looks like a hotel. I have been there a couple of times before. The only part I don't like is that in order to get to grandma's apartment, I have to go into a room that moves! I don't think I will ever like them. On the way up, I hid behind daddy's legs and I was shaking. I was fine once I got to grandma's house. I laid on the floor and napped while daddy worked. Daddy fixed her computer- we think. As of yesterday it was still working OK. Paws crossed!! When we left I had to go back into that terrible moving room again! This time I paced in circles until we got back to the main floor. After the visit we went to Petsmart. Mom and dad had meant to go to Petco but they got mixed up and ended up at Petsmart instead. That was OK. They found what they needed. Mom needed a pet gate to put up in the stair way. Tomorrow she gets her first doggy day care dogs. The dogs from the day care will have to stay downstairs. That way the cats can come upstairs and be safe. Mom says she will let me upstairs when ever I want to as well. Also the downstairs is all hard wood floors which is much easier to clean up accidents than the carpets upstairs. Mom is excited. They are two little chihuahuas that I met at the farmer's market last Saturday. After daddy installed the gate, I wasn't too sure what to do. It took me a few minutes to get brave enough to go through the opening. I am OK with it now. Daddy put me on my leash and led me up and down a couple of times.

Mom is looking for my brothers and sisters right now. She just contacted the adoption groups that placed them in their homes. Mom hopes to set up a reunion next year when we go to Gettysburg. They all live close to PA! So far we know that 3 have been adopted. There are 2 more missing. I hope they are all OK. One of my brothers was doing well at the track. He would be too old to still be racing but maybe he is being used as a stud dog. I also found out that my dad was quite famous.His name was Flying Penske. He was a very successful racer and is up for the greyhound hall of fame! Sadly he passed away the exact month and year that I was born. Because of artificial insemination he is still fathering puppies!!! In fact I was shocked to learn that my good friend, Fast, is actually my half brother! Small world!
