I am a grandma

But not to a human baby, not yet!  I'd like to be a mother in law first, thank you very much.  Elaine and Chris got a puppy, a Boston terrier.  He's pretty cute (who can resist a puppy?).  Ignore the weird thing his eye is doing in his sleep.

His parents are big L.A. Dodger fans so his name is Scully, after the beloved announcer Vin Scully, of what--40 years?  Chris wanted to name him Doc, so his official name is Dr. Scully Longfellow. 

He went to Thanksgiving dinner with Elaine and was reportedly very well behaved despite the many new people and my nephew Matt showing up with three live ducklings!  So, now I am a Grandma, with a grand-dog.  Hmm.

He's darling! Frankie (also a Boston Terrier) is our first grandpuppy -- he is absolutely the weirdest dog on earth, but he makes us laugh out loud!

Congratulations on your new barking grandbaby! I'm sure he'll bring you lots of fun!

You Australian pictures have been wonderful! I would love to visit there someday myself (and you went in the best season!)

What a cutie-pie!
We have two grand-cats and a grand-dog. Sigh. Hoping it's practice for the real thing some day!
