Friday Flashback

This is a very special Friday Flashback. Tomorrow is my Grandpa Charlie's birthday. He passed away May of 2009. My mom is still very upset about this loss. He was the most wonderful man that you could ever meet. He would give the shirt off of his back for you. He helped raise my mom and mom tells me living with Grandpa Charlie for 20 some years she can't ever remember a time that he got mad at her or ever made her feel like he didn't love her. Mom still cries a lot thinking about him no longer being here but she is trying to move on with life because that is what Grandpa would have wanted. This picture is so special to mom because Grandpa was staying at our house the weekend that they picked up their new foster dog...ME! This is a picture of me meeting Grandpa Charlie for the very first time. He used to call me his "little blue eyes" because he had a hard time saying my name but I didn't mind being his little blue eyes. He always asked mom about me when she would call to check in on him since he lived 3 hours away.

Happy Birthday Grandpa Charlie we love and miss you SO very much.



  1. That is a very touching post. Happy Birthday to your granddad in Heaven tomorrow and we know he is surely looking down on you. Lots of love, Debbie and holly

  2. Happy Birthday to your Granddad in heaven! You must have wonderful memories of him!


  3. That sure was a nice tribute, we feel like we knew him too.

  4. What a wonderful post this is Sagira! And we can understand about your mom being sad still - our mom is like that with her dad and mom. But it is good to remember the good times, like in this picture - which we think is great by the way. And we think that it is cool that he called you his little blue eyes - it is a special nickname for you that came only from him! We are sending your mom comforting purrs and hugs!

  5. Sagira, that is the sweetest picture! Your Granddad looked like a wonderful person, we're so glad you got to know him. And of course mom is swooning over another baby picture of you...

    PeeEssWoo: Tomorrow is my Doggy Nanny's birthday too...

  10. Happy Birthday to your Grandpa! He is looking down and I bet is so proud of how talented and giving you are! Quinn, The Other White Dog, had a skin tumor when he came to live with us 5 months ago but our vet wanted him to get settled and at home before she started "messing" with it or with his teeth which badly needed cleaning. The tumor was a flap little finger sized and when she cleaned his teeth 2 weeks ago, she removed the growth. There were some cells she could not ID so we sent them in. Thankfully everything cam back ok. The stitches were from that surgery. Thanks so much for your concern.

  11. Happy Birthday to your Grandpa Charlie! That is a very sweet pic of the both of you. I bet you miss him a lot, too.

    Lots of extra love and doggie kisses today!
