A tribute

Droopy and Callie here

Today's post is a tribute post. Tuesday was our Grandma's birthday! She would have been 85 this year which is like a gazillon in doggie years. Sadly she passed away right after Thanksgiving last year and we miss her.

The main reason for this tribute post is because our Grandma taught her family to love dogs. Plus she loved CHEESE!!! Our Grandma and our momma were self-proclaimed cheese hounds. They would get together and just eat cheese. She is major inspiration for our cheese hound blog!

This is Grandma with Holly, her shih tzu.

Holly was her constant companion the last few years of her life. Holly had her own chair and would sit patiently while Grandma brushed. The funniest part was, sometimes when Momma would go visit, Grandma would have Holly's little bangs brushed and put in a clip and so would Grandma's! It would always make Momma laugh and Grandma never realize she looked like Holly.

So Happy Birthday Grandma and we miss you.

Sniff ya later,
Droopy and Callie


  1. It is good to think about how much you love your Grandma. She will always be with you. How fitting that she was a cheese hound too!


  2. Lovely pic of Holly with your Grandma - we can see the resemblance!
    A lovely tribute and we are glad you can remember and smile - Grandma would be happy to know she left you with smiling memories.
