Two or three weeks ago, I posted a blog about a visit from our granddog Wally who had come for a visit with our grandson Bryan. Wally and Bryan live in Washington DC, and that was his first visit to northeast Ohio. It was fun getting to know him, and I recently posted a blog about his visit. Today’s post is about Mabel, another granddog. Mabel is an English Sheepdog…a very large and energetic sheepdog, as you can see from the pictures.
On the day I took these pictures, she and her family had stopped by for a short visit. Last year when they were moving into their new house, about 45 minutes south of us, Mabel lived with Bob and me for a few months. Being dog lovers, we enjoyed having her around. However, they eventually settled into their new home, and Mabel moved back with them and their other dog Cooper. These days she only comes for a occasional visit, and on one of those visits I took these pictures. A dog, especially one as large and as lively as Mabel, can definitely add more than a little zest to the household.
That’s it for Mabel’s visit. Maybe in a future post I will introduce Cooper or one of our other granddogs. We don’t have a resident dog these days, but they are always welcome for a visit. Dogs really do add joy to a home. We have a picture on our wall with the caption, “There’s something about the outside of a dog that is good for the inside of a person!” I believe that is true.
See you again soon!
