    Well, I talked to my grandma last night. she has Dixie right now. She was a little worried sunday night and during the day yesterday because Dixie wouldn't eat. She just kept covering her food. So, then my granny mixed some can dog food with the dry dog food, and she just ate it up. I told her that Dixie was just going to see how much they were going to spoil her. They just love Dixie. They say she is just the sweetest dog. Dixie loves my grandpa. She has been with him since she got there. In the recliner, in the bed. The only problem is, Dixie is very jealous and protective now. She won't let my granny's other dogs go near my grandpa. They say every time they go to give her a treat, she will dance around on her hind legs. She gets to stay in the house and run around the front yard. She seems very happy, and they love her!!! I felt so much better after talking to them last night. I told her I would call again in a couple of days to check and see how everything was going. I'll keep you all posted.

    That's funny, Tambra, even though I'm sad for you it does sound like Dixie is loving having her way. My little Mickey, the Toy Terrier, was the same was about my Grandaddy as Dixie is about your Grandpa. No one was allowed to come near him, especially not the grandkids. Sometimes when the other grandkids got too bratty Grandaddy would call Mickey up in his lap, lol!

    Thanks for keeping us posted!

    How is Beulah taking it, by the way?

    Every night she runs to the bedroom door where Dixie usually slept and sniffs around for a few minutes, then she'll walk around the house like she is looking for her. Then, she will just give up, and come sit with me on the couch.

    Last night I was sitting on the couch and I could have sworn I heard her barking outside. It was the weirdest thing. There are times when I still think that she is just outside and I need to go get her and bring her in. I'm just really happy that she is happy where she's at and she's getting spoiled and my grandparents absolutely love her.

    Is she going to end up staying with your grandparents, or is your grandmother's friend still going to come and get Dixie?

    I actually think she is going to stay at my grandparents' house!!! That would be the best thing!!! They both love her so much already and are already spoiling her rotten. Plus, from what they've told me, Dixie is really happy there and she loves being with them. Plus, I could still get to see her...

    well, I talked to my mom last night, and she had been at my grandparents' house, and she told me that Dixie is so spoiled!!!!! She told me that Dixie is running that whole house now. Even the other dogs are starting to "mind" her!!!! I am so happy. It's like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders...
