Greetings to all my pup pals. Sorry I haven't made an entry for some time. I will do my best to catch you all up. My typist has been very busy and very stressed over grandpa. He is not doing well. We continue to visit him almost every weekend and he no longer has his mental capacity. Sometimes he doesn't even know us. His mental decline has been rapid and continues to get worse. Last weekend we went to visit. I am always a big hit with all the patients there, so mom wanted to do something special since it is almost Christmas. Mom dressed me in my reindeer antlers and jingle bell collar. I walked around the nursing home spreading holiday cheer to both the residents and the nurses. Grandpa didn't pay much attention to me. That made me sad. He wasn't having a good day. We didn't stay long as they were predicting a big snow storm. Mom and dad wanted to leave early to try and avoid it. When we left, it was cloudy out but not snowing. By the time we reached the highway, it started. We were over an hour away from home. The snow started to get worse and worse. Mom and dad were getting scared. At one point daddy couldn't even see where the lanes were in the road. We were going only 25 miles and hour. Daddy was considering stopping and getting a hotel for the night. He kept driving though and gradually it got better and better. Mom said we must have hit a snow squall. Eventually the snow was just very light and the roads were clear again. By the time we made it to our town, it has started snowing heavy again. We got home just in time!

Mom's doggy day care is going well. My friend, Rosco spent a few days with us. Mom normally doesn't take dogs over night. She will take greyhounds though. We had a lot of fun. Rosco was here for 4 days. He was the perfect house guest and I loved having him here. I got really sad when he left. His mom said he will be able to stay with us again some time. I hope it is soon.

I wasn't able to march in the Christmas Parade this year. This was the first year I didn't march. It was a cold rainy day and my corn was bothering me. I was limping a bit. Since I was in pain and the weather was bad, mom and dad decided not to march. It was just as well because no other dogs even showed up. I would have been the only one! Mom and dad got to watch the parade. It was much smaller than usual because of the weather, but mom still enjoyed it.

I hope all my friends have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
