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:

Rambo, certified service dog

My Love for a Big Ball

By Gracie, ball connoisseur

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
Bouncing and flouncing and rolling around,
It's up in the air and then on the ground!

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
I chase it, and bite it, and nose it, and lick it!
I'll push it towards Mommy and then she will kick it!

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
All covered with slobber and a bit of dirt too,
From the bottom of my heart I really love you!

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
It doesn't matter if its red, green, or white
I try to chase and catch it with all my might!

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
I so love to play with you and never stop!
I'd go at it forever or until I drop!

A Ball, a Ball, a Big ol' Ball!
If I can't bite it, it's definately best,
cause then Mommy won't lay it in the trash to rest.

Happy Valentines Day!
