I love to cuddle and love going out anytime and anywhere. "i just love to stick my head out the car window and feel that California breeze run through my hair".
any and all baths and the pool!
just licking toes
very small treats
We go to the mall, all doctor appointments and errands
I can give a "High Five" , "Gimme ten",shake hands, a sort of salute means I want:out,dinner,treats
When Grace came to the family she weighed only 10 ounces. A can of coke was bigger than she was. A very small white ball of fluff with arms and legs that were all over the place "She looked very much like a new bunny, she even hopped along the yard like one".
Grace was born on ST. Patrick's Day. March 17th, 2005. When she came to me she weighed 10 ounces and was so tiny. A can of soda was taller than she was. She was a tiny ball of fluff. Today in 2014 Grace is still a tiny ball of fluff but she's a lot larger and weighs 6 pounds. Today when I look at her I have so much love for her, respect and gratitude for all the things she's taught me. To be loved by Grace is a wonderful experience. She's so smart and has so much love in her heart. She's grown to be a perfect example of her breed. She loves to play and is curious about the flowers on our walks. She has had good training and was the smallest yet at the top of her group training class. She walks so well on her leash and loves to ride in the car even though she's in her safety belt in the back seat. She knows if she sees anything on the ground that's unfamiliar to leave it there and only sniff it. Grace is mellow and goes with the flow of life around her, She has so much love for life and respects other dogs and cats and finds watching hamsters run around the wheel at Petsmart to be very interesting. Grace has loves to do most anything. Its sometimes difficult to remember that she's a dog but Grace is a most special dog and has so many gifts and talents. Her mom, Rebecca loves her so dearly and she was raised with extreme care.
She came to the home of Rebecca who already had a spirited Yorkshire Terrier named Cloe who was 8 years old at the time. Although they each had their own bed, they often cuddled in each other's bed or my bed. Cloe lived to be 16 years old and passed from cancer in 2012. Grace misses her dearly.
Rebecca is hoping to find a 2nd dog to add to the family. We're not necessarily looking for another small dog which is a Maltese, although, this would be nice because the Maltese breed is very much loved in our family and we've always taken great care of any dog in our family because here, dogs ARE family. Teeth are well brushed, shots are always up to date, hair is always well groomed and baths are often and so are long walks and lots of toys and playing. Above all, the love I've had for all 3 dogs in my life has been something which has been a wonderful gift.
I have sometimes had migraines which are very bad. Grace has the innate ability to let me know before I've had one. She alerts me by pawing in the air and I know its time for a remedy which stops one from coming. This is remarkable.
However, I'm not looking for another dog who would do this because this is so rare. I am looking for the right dog who loves us they way we can love her which is simply pure love and respect and care for another dog.
I grew up with a wonderful Sheltie/mix who lived to be far into her teens. Her name was Banzai which means good luck and she was a clown.
When I was older I went to the shelter a fell for a Cocker Spaniel which I adopted. Daisy was between 3 to 5 years old. Daisy had special needs which we were unaware of at the time. After we visited our vet, she was on special medication. I never thought to return her-No. Daisy was Family and we loved her and took care of her. We loved Daisy for 14 years and she was a beautiful soul.
Today, Grace is 9 years old and a 2nd dog in our family would be a gift. It seems that dogs have always been most important in my life and loving them is so natural. Grace likes cats and its difficult to think of my life without dogs. They'd God's special gift. Dogs are Love.
