Last week Chick came with me to visit my grandma, who is in a nursing home. Chick was the talk of the town as soon as she walked inside. Everyone oohed and ahhed over her, just like a little baby. But the best part: my grandma decided to forget the fact that she’s been afraid of dogs all her life, and welcomed Chick in too. I guess there’s one teeny, tiny perk to dementia. And Chick was on her best behavior.
