Arrival Story:
Gracie Hope was rescued a year ago from a neglectful family. She has had little exposure to the outside world. Gracie is spay incontinent and displays fear agression against other dogs, but with a recent bout of excellent traing she has turned into a much easier pet to handle. She was starved of love and affection and LOVES her people now. She gets more love than she ever could have imagined and I am never giving up on this little girl! Grace is my joy and laughter, despite all she has suffered in her life she makes me guffaw each and every day! I was fostering Gracie as a rescue, she had made her way through four other foster homes, was adopted twice and returned and I should mention that her "first" home was also an adotive placement , so that in 4 years Gracie had gone through 8 pairs of hands before I decided that I could not fail this dog again and chose to adopt her permantently. That was May the fifth of 2005, and I have never made a better decision in my life (other than adopting Jacob and Mozart, LOL)

In Gracie's own Words...I was rescued when I was a puppy too. Then when my owner got me spayed I had a reaction and I have spay incontinence, so my owner put me in the basement and left me there. I didn't see people or other dogs for 3 years. Then I was rescued again. Two people took me home "forever", but I was too hard to handle and they both brought me back. I was also in 4 other foster homes. In one foster home a dog that was visiting my foster owners for a while, bit me really badly, and guess where I ended up being kept... Yep... in the basement! Now I am with my Mama and I really love her. I am still really bad when I go outside, I try to attack dogs and go crazy, but Mom makes sure I am never able to reach another dog. I hope to someday be like my brother Jacob and let go of the neglect that I suffered. Mom says we're getting there!

I really miss my Moe Moe and my Olly Cat, Jacob won't play with me! Mama says she's getting me my own brand new kittie this week, but I'll believe it when I see it. I have had alot of accidents sinse Mozart and Oliver went to heaven. I try not to, but I just can't seem to help myself. Mama rouses me gently from bad dreams at night... I really hope the new kittie comes. Her name is going to be Bonnie Angel!

My Mama is flippin out... yesterday I snuck out of tha apartment when our neighbour knocked, and I met Kutya, sounds like Kootcha, she's a tri-color Shetland sheep dog. Guess what... I didn't eat her!!! I smelled her all over and walked around her , sorta being a bit bossy, but then my tiny little tail started going a mile a minute and for a second there I almost forgot that I hate strange dogs, but Mama saw me get a bit too stiff so she made me go inside. Mom thinks I may actually have a new REAL doggie friend. On the bad side I got into BIG doo-doo the other night. Mom let me go in the dog park for a few minutes. It was dark and rainy, and no other dogs were there... BUT, as soon as I got off my leash I ran under a tree by the pond and grabbed a duck! Mom was MAD! I don't understand why she didn't bring it home for supper! I worked hard for that duck. Oh well, Mamas will be Mamas.

yer not gojng to believe this... first my Mama forgot my birth date... then she just let the first anniversary of my adoption roll by... no prezzies... no extra hugs and kisses and THEN she comes crawling in with some dog toy for me... begging for forgiveness!!!! A DOG toy!!!! Where's my gold watch and the Mercedes... the top of the line brand new jogging puppy stroller with pink fringes and off road wheels... where's my side of beef and gift certificate for Dog Fancy Magazine. I kiss HER every day! I wag my stubby tail, and turn circles when she walks in the door... tripping her and making SURE that she knows how much I love HER and how much I missed HER all day... but NOOOOOOOO..... on my special days she totally FORGETS about me.... till the guilt trips her and makes her stumble home from her JOB with some lame little DOG toy!!!!!!! You would think she realized by now that I am more human than most of the humans she knows... poor me... gonna go off now with my newest lame stupid MOST FAVORITE DOG TOY I EVER GOT IN MY WHOLE FREAKIN LIFE... oops, did I say that out loud????
