In 1949, Grandpa Elwood (a true dog lover) had two big dogs, a Saint Bernard and a Saint Bernard-Airedale mix. When Grandma Nana (Grandma Fern’s mom) expressed concern about the expense of these huge animals, Grandpa made his famous statement that he would never “take food out of his children’s mouths to give to his dogs.” (Grandma Nana quoted him on that several times to friends and family.)
