Never heard of a grand dog... but it makes sense... I guess :o) You crack me up Dianna. Excellent portrait (as usual). #7842064

Dianna Murphy August 12, 2009

Dogs are part of the family of course, so why not give them an endearing title. With six kids in addition to the grand dogs and grand kids it can get pretty crazy around here... you gotta have a sense of humor! Thanks to all for the nice comments. I'll give Lexy an extra scratch. #7842118
