We are very sad to report that our Grandpa passed away today. But we know that he is in a much better place and will never have any more pain. Thanks to all of you who remembered him in your prayers. Please continue to pray for our grandma, she is really going to miss him!

I don't think it is fair that Rocky got a nice new collar! So, I took care of the problem!
We would also like to think all of you for your continued prayers for our Grandpa. He is a long way from being "out of the woods", but was a little improved today! We will get a report from his lung doctor tomorrow and will get you an update!

This is not the best picture of our Grandpa, he really is a happy fellow when he is feeling well. We just wanted to share a visual so you would know who we were talking about. Grandpa is very sick and in the hospital. His COPD has gotten very bad. We appreciate your prayers for him and our Grandma. She is really having a tough time dealing with his illness. Mom will try to update the blog over the weekend and let you all know how things are going.
Thanks for your prayers!

My mom wanted me to be sure and tell you all that she very much appreciated all the good thoughts and prayers you sent up for our Grandpa. He is doing much better today and will probably be moved out of ICU and into a regular room. He may be at the hospital for a few more days though.
When she got back from sitting with Grandpa at the hospital today guess where I got to go? The V-E-T! Can you believe that? I didn't even get any fair warning either. It just happened! Dad was petting me and said "Hey, what's that on Rocky's hind quarter? And Mom said "What?" and then the next thing I know BAM! I'm on the examining table! The spot didn't look quite like the picture shown here when Mom took me in. It was just a raised spot with all the hair off of it. It was a fairly large spot and Mom was concerned it might be ring worm. The doc said it could be, but it didn't test positive for that. He gave me some antibiotics and some cream to put on it though. He said he wanted to see me back if it doesn't get better or if I get more spots. Then he will do a biopsy...
I did get a new collar out of the deal though. When Mom was getting ready to take me to the vet she couldn't find a collar here at the house that fit me. Can you believe she had the nerve to ask the Vet's assistant if they had any big collars that would fit my "fat" neck? The nice lady was quick to correct Mom though. She told her my neck was not "fat", it was muscular. So there! Anyways, I will keep you guys posted on what happens with this spot and I will also give you updates on my Grandpa! Thanks again for all your thoughts & prayers!

We told Mom that one post a month was not gonna cut it! This is getting ridiculous! We made her take a fresh picture of us to put up so that you could see we were still alive anyways!
Things have been pretty busy around here lately though, so we will cut her a little slack. Our dear Grandpa is back in the hospital. This is the second time since the first of the year. He has COPD. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers for us.
In better news though, our oldest furless brother will be home for Spring Break in a couple of days. We are really looking forward to getting to spend some time with him. Hopefully Mom will get some pictures to post while he is home this time. Geez, it's like pulling teeth...
Before we go, we want to know if any other pup out there uses that PediPaws thingy. We got one from Santa (no cool treats this year) but we haven't used it too much yet. If any of you have one do you like it? The jury is still out here.
Well, we will catch you later. With any luck we will be talking to you again before APRIL!
