Oh my, do I miss my camera.
August 8th will be 3 weeks since I left it at Best Buys for repair.
It is on my calendar.
And a count down is in progress.
Anyway, I found two pictures that I took when my camera was working. I've been saving them for a "rainy day". Today is the day.
(Technically, there is not a drop of moisture outside that hasn't been sucked up by extreme humidity and blistering 100 degree heat ... but when your camera is broken and you are a blogger ... it is a rainy day. Trust me on this.)
So here is the back story to this picture.
I visited my grand dogs' vet to buy some dog food. Both are on vet grade dog food. (Grandmothers buy their own equipment and food. It is sort of like a grandmother rule.) Anyway, as I was waiting, an old man came in and dropped a dog bed on the floor in the waiting room. Walking slowly behind him was this old Pug. The Pug seemed to be "seeing" his way with his nose to his bed.
Needless to say, I couldn't just ignore the fact that a very old Pug had just arrived. I was compelled to ask questions. Apparently, Mr. Twizzles is 15 years old. The owner, who was pretty rickety himself, was bringing his dog in for boarding for a week. Mr. Twizzles is both deaf and blind! His nose, however, still works. Once he found his bed, he curled up and settled in.
Now I tell you!!
When my grand dogs are old, they will NEVER EVER come to a strange place to spend a week - especially if they are blind and deaf. NEVER EVER!!
The vet staff assured me that Mr. Twizzles has been here before and that as long as he has his bed (and his food and his bone), he is happy.
So did someone ask him if he was happy? And did he respond? And if he is deaf, would he have even heard the question??? Hmph!
Mr. Twizzles doesn't have a Grandmother - obviously!!
But doesn't that face just melt your heart? I know it melted mine. If I didn't have 3 dogs waiting at home for me that day, Mr. Twizzles would have been boarding with me for that week.
(Technically, my husband who is a cat person probably would have had a problem with that arrangement ... but, well, I know ... if he saw that face ....)
