According to his daughter, Meghan, Larry Specksgoor of Midlothian, VA, “desperately wants grandchildren.”

But really, he’s not hurting for good company with Meghan’s shepherd mix, Chance.

When Meghan went to New York over the holidays, Larry graciously agreed to care for Chance and while doing so, his hilarious Twitter messages to his daughter went viral!

In one text, he wrote, “Grandpa wants to know what kind of take out I can have? We are starving.”

Another included a photo showing the 4-year-old pup enjoying time at the park.

“Hate to keep bothering you mom, but we really need to hang out with gramps more,” he also wrote.

Meghan told ABC News her father and her dog also “went to Petco to get his nails done because he needed his nails trimmed” and enjoyed sugar-free frozen yogurt together.

Great time with your “grand-dog,” Larry!
