Mr Grover passed away with his family by his side on May 12, 2015.
Ms Petey, Maui & I had a chance to say one last good-bye before Grover passed away. It was a very sad day to have to say good-bye to a friend. Grover has been with the LPC pack since 2004 he is one of “The Original Eight”
Grover was a friendly dog not a mean bone in his body. He looked a little intimidating but he was a gentle soul. I nicknamed him Mr Congeniality aka Grandpa. When I had to introduce a new pup to the pack or a new boarding guest. I would introduce a newbie to Mr Grover first then Petey or Maui. Mr Grover would put the newbie at ease with a wag of his tail and a few prancing moves.
Mr Grover had the respect from the pack. On the days that I would pickup Mr Grover the pack would move to the back sit and save the front sit for Grover. It was like they knew Grover was my co-pilot which he held that position for 11 years.
