Today marks the #3 HY on the calendar on which GrandSire moved on to his Greater Reward. We, here at Todo Chronicles & in My Family, we’re sad. We miss him. He was always quiet & reserved. He didn’t understand bigotry & hatred. He was willing to give everyone a little understanding & a helping hand. He & GrandDam supported many, many underprivileged children in poor, war-torn, 3rd World Countries over many many HY. He considered his options carefully. He was never mean-spirited or ugly to another human or critter. He didn’t understand lying, cheating or stealing to get what he wanted. He got what he got the hard way. He worked hard. Saved some. Studied his profession. He didn’t get the memo that said that underhandedness & lack of honesty & integrity are OK as long as you make money. He never thought the only standard for success was how much money you acquired, by hook or by crook. He was a Good Egg & the Last of the Grand Old Gentlemen.

So, My Family is sad today, missing GrandSire & all. But we all know he’s in a better place. We know, also, that he wouldn’t have understood the present situation, here in the country that he loved & revered & fought for in 2 wars. He wouldn’t know how to assimilate the circumstances that brought a blow-hard, windbag, Con-Man to put PT Barnum to shame could possibly be elected to the highest office in the land. To the Leader of the Free World. He would be so very sad. Being as how he didn’t cotton to unethical bidness practices. He really todolly believed that everything should be on the Up & Up.
GrandSire moved here, to my state, the Great State of CA just before the election of Pres. Barko Bama. He came here as a member of the Red Party. A dues paying, card carrying member. But he allowed as how, when Mr. Bama won election #1, that the Best Man won. Subsequently he watched, sometimes horrified &/or embarrassed at the Red Party’s antics. Prior to the next election he renounced his membership in the Red Party & became a card-carrying, dues paying Blue Party member. Thereafter he was on board with the Blue Party & supported the candidate in the next election. Even contributed his laptop so the campaign would have enough equipment to get the job done.
We, my family, are sad today but we know he’s in a better place. Moved On back to his place of rest with GrandDam. I guess we will have to take a page or 2 from GrandSire’s book. We’ll have to move on & do what we can to ensure that this turn of events doesn’t todolly ruin GrandSire’s beloved country. The one he fought for. The one many of his generation & those coming after died for.
Us Dogs in K9 Nation will have to settle for no franchise for a while. Which doesn’t mean we’ll forget about it. We will just put it on hold & keep lobbying. Seems to work in all other aspects of social & political life. & humans concerned about issues affecting their society & species, will have to learn to work quietly to accomplish their objectives. So when sea levels rise & flood major human investment, when water becomes undrinkable, when the air chokes the life out of a few, they’ll just have to Move On, wait for another day to capitalize on their concerns & try not to devolve into repeating the old standby . . . We told you so.
Myself, personally, & professionally, I think that’s what GrandSire would do. & I believe we will effect the best results if we all remember GrandSire & Move On.
