Arrival Story: Gracie came from a backyard breeder. She had little vet care, if any. My Mom wondered that for some time. My Mom saw an ad in the local paper and thats when she came to my rescue. When my Mom arrived, I stayed on the porch, I was shy. She kept looking at me while the other pups were running everywhere. See I was sick! The breeder was taking me to the pound the next day and could not understand why her dogs kept having puppies. My Mom pointed at me and said "I will take her" I just sat there! Mom was taking me home but I didnt have the strength to get up. She picked me up! Mom said that she wasn't going to leave without me!. The breeder could not produce any vet records and my stomach was bloated. Fly bites covered my body! I was very ill! I went straight to the vet. The vet stated that this was bad. Her skin looked like an elephant. She was full of worms, a bad eye infection to name a few.He also said that I was severely underweight. I laid on the couch for 1 week and Mom didnt think that I was going to make it. She even slept on the floor beside me. I knew she loved me! I was getting all kinds of yucky medicine. The next week, I was feeling good! Within two weeks, I had gained 20 pounds. She was 13 weeks and 13 pounds when she came to her forever home. Within a month, the vet did not recognize her, great care and great food! After weeks of human care and one great vet, Gracie became a new dog! She loves to go outside a million times a day to potty and check out the outdoors. She loves to swim with her dog cousins in the big pond. She likes to sleep on the couch when her humans are away. She is my best friend and a wonderful dog. She is trusting even though her start was poor! Gracie is the best! Gracie is Mommas baby forever! I love you,Gracifer!
I am so excited. Mom said the word "POND". I know I heard it! She said it and I know what she meant. WE are going to the POND. OH MY! I am so excited. I can run frre and swim with all of my lab cousins. I know Mom said POND. I saw her bring up a plastic tub and she put toiletries in it! She only does it when we go somewhere. POND! I am going to the pond. Keep your paws crossed because I am ready to fly down the hill and get wet!
Mom and sissy have been gone to Florida. Dad stayed home and took care of us. He was a good Dad. He fed us, let us play outside and we slept alot. Sissy had a cheer thing at Disney. She and Mom took an airplane. Mom said it was a bad ride. She doesnt like to feel the funny air. She is back home and now everthing thing is back to normal. Sadie was a toad and she is Daddy's baby. He loves me too! I mind my own business. I found that I could clean out the cabinets while Mom was gone. Dad was mad! Oh well, he didnt catch me, he only saw the remnants. Pebs and Daisy were like beez. They fly through the house and really go no where. What a waste when they could be catching zzzzzzzz's. Gotta snooze!
Mom said it is getting close to the time when we go to the pond! I am getting my labby sleep!
