Walks, rides in the car, Greenies, having her ears rubbed
Vacumn cleaners, her brother Jack
Paper - she loves to shred paper.
Chicken and cheese
To the neighborhood park down the street.
Beating out Jack for the best bed. If he is already in the bed, she goes to the door like she has to go outside. When we open the door, Jack jumps up to go out with her but she runs over and takes his spot!
Gracie was "bounced" from a previous home through no fault of her own. She came to a Meet and Greet with her foster family. We immediately fell in love with her and ultimately brought her home. How could anyone not love this little girl!
Gracie originated in Arizona. Her race name was WB Not Forgotten. We haven't found any race data on her, but we do know that she was used for breeding and had at least two litters. On a trip to the Caliente track, we found one of her pups - What a Toss. He was placed in a forever home by Greyhound Pets of America. Like Jack, our other grey, Gracie used to get Happy Feet in the evening. She would race around the house like crazy for about five minutes, then it was back to her bed. She likes to play chase with Jack and hide-and-seek with Mom and Dad. Now days, a neurological problem has made it hard for Gracie to use her back legs. She has adjusted well, but is limited in how much she can do at a time. She is one tough little girl. She doesn't play with toys, but likes to play. She has the cutest ears that stand up all the time giving her the look of a little deer. Read about her pedigree at http://www.greyhound-data.com/d?i= 501889.

Gracie had an on-going nerological problem. We thought we were going to lose her in January 2008, but she fought back. Though she could not walk very well or very far, she looked forward to her walks to the park. In March 2009, she got worse and much as we hoped for a miracle, it became clear that it was time to let her go. She could not stand or walk any more and was suffering as a result. Many tears have been shed and many more will follow because she was so dear to us, but we have many loving memories of her brief time with us. It was a priviledge having her in our lives.
