Grandma Rose

Visiting Grandma Rose

I have written about Grandma Rose before, so you probably know that she is Mimi's mother. Grandma Rose is 93 years old and last month she moved into a residential care facility.  Last week,Mimi and I drove to Victoria to see her. 

I was invited to go because I am an impawtant member of our family pack. 

I have known Grandma Rose all my life. She likes me, and when she lived in her own place I was always welcome. I would often sit beside her as she watched TV or read a book. She never minded the noise I made with my squeaky toys and I never minded her watching tennis (her favorite).

Actually, she was easy going with me and the other family dogs unless we left pee mail in her house, in which case she was not too pleased. Pawever, if we ever did leave pee mail, she knew that it was not really the dog's fault. She would say that we needed more or longer walks.

Grandma Rose is a tiny pawson. Every time I see her she seems a bit smaller. 

Here is a photo of Grandma Rose and me. It was taken last Saturday. She asked fur me to sit on her bed.

Grandma Rose is my furend.

Grandma Rose used to go fur long walks by herself. Now she uses a wheelchair to get around.

Mimi is happy that Grandma Rose can still play chess.

We will be visiting Grandma Rose again before too long.
