   Leave a bone for Gracie - In Loving Memory

Miss Grace, Dogling, Little Monster, Pretty Girl, Little Love

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-purebred-service dog

February 14th 1999

Toys, playing, being asked to do help out in any way, going places with me

Snow, rain, cold weather, having her jumping/exercise restricted and being retired from her job

Favorite Toy:
Frisbees, balls, anything you are willing to throw for her. Anything you want her to pick up.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
She likes beaches, pet stores, dog class, and The Redford Theatre.

Best Tricks:
Gracie does the usual tricks like rollover, but her best trick is warning me of impending panic attacks. She cuddles when I'm anxious and is silly when I'm sad. Gracie picks up things I drop or cannot bend over to get. She makes life better!!

Arrival Story:
I've had Gracie since she was a pup. I picked her because while all the other pups were being Boston TERRORS, Gracie would hop up on my knee and watch the other pups play. She would hop down for a minute to join the fray, but aparently satisfied would then hop back up to my knee. She also got high scores on her puppy temperment test and was a natural retriever.

Gracie is my best friend of course! She has always known my moods and has tried her best to alleviate my fears. She has happily stepped up to help out more as my mobility has been deteriorating. Gracie has two sides: 1. She is a graceful southern belle of a lap dog, gentle, mannerly, sweet and kind 2. She is a obsessive/compulsive toy crazy dog that would do anything for a frisbee fix and would chase a ball till she died of a heart attack. Gracie is getting older now and has retired for the most part from being my service dog. She is still happy to help out at home.

I'll tell 7 more facts about myself but I'm afraid I'll be getting hate mail if I try tagging anyone else!

1. I know all sorts of traditional tricks!

2. I like to jog along while Mom rides her bicycle. (she likes to ride her bike at night when it is cooler out and there aren't so many people about) After a few miles I get tired and want to ride in the basket.

3. I can catch frisbies! Yeah!

4. I can hold a downstay for 4 hours with or without Mom around. I haven't been asked to stay down for longer than that.

5. When I realize that I'm about to get a bath, I sit with my head hanging, frown, and make with the big seal eyes! It hasn't worked yet. Darn!

6. I know how to climb ladders! Watch out roof, here I come!

7. Even though I'm a good dog I do have a weakness for rolling in dead things! Oh, I just LOVE that special scent!!

Now I've been tagged by my pal Sabrina!

Here are the rules of the game!

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs
who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 paw-
some facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t
forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read
your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been

7 fun facts about Gracie:

1. I won't get up in the morning till my mom does. I stay by her side
even when daddy lets Sassy out.

2. I am in a documentary that will be coming out in a few years. It is
about the Redford Theatre. I hung out on the 3 story scaffolding with
mom while she restored some paintings of Japanese samurai and
Geisha. They took photos of me too! I also got ride a boom lift! Fun!

3. I absolutely love lazar Pointers!

4. I got to be in the wedding party when mom and dad got married.

5. I like to be dressed up! when mom pulls out an outfit for me to
wear, I start to dance!

6. I like popcorn

7. I'm so into playing ball or Frisbee or doing agility that I will keep
going strong even after ripping up my foot pads and stopper pads.
Mom has to constantly stop and check my feet because I will show
no sign of having hurt myself until later!!

I'm tagging:
