My typist is behind again. I kept bugging her to put in my entry so she finally agreed. It has been a hard winter. It has been very cold and we have been getting a lot of snow. In fact more is expected on Monday. I am so ready for spring. Last Sunday was a nicer day. It was sunny and in the 40's. Mom noticed that there was a Greyhound Adventures walk at Horn Pond, so mom and dad took me! My corn had been bothering me, but at the moment it is OK. I was SO happy. I got to see so many friends- Brutus, Johnny B, Cella, Lux and many others. The path had some snowy and slippery spots but we able to walk around the entire pond- 2 miles. Mom held on to daddy when it got slippery. It was so much fun!! WE did get some bad news on the walk, however. My good friend Cella has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. It is a bone cancer that greyhounds get. In fact 1 in 4 gets it. Cella's mom and dad are meeting with a doctor today and Cella is scheduled to have her leg removed on Tuesday. I feel so bad for her. Loosing a leg will be hard, but not as bad as loosing your life. Most greyhounds do just fine on 3 legs. Please keep Cella in your prayers.

After the walk we went to NH to visit Grandpa. He was in a very bad way. He had fallen a couple of days earlier and his wheel chair had fallen on top of him. He didn't have any broken bones but he was all bruised. He didn't really wake up when we were there. He is so thin now- just bones! I did bring some joy to some of the other residents, however. They like coming up to pet me. After the nursing home we made a quick visit to Petco for some food and supplies. It was a busy day!

On Wednesday mom got a call from hospice that grandpa wasn't doing well. They don't think he will live much longer. They have said this before several times and he always bounces back. We plan to go and visit him today.
