Favorite Food: She eats Blue Buffalo for small breeds, but she loves Cheese, Greenie cookies, swiss cheese, carrots, cheddar cheese, American cheese, and more cheese.
Favorite Walk: To Land of Paws or in the neighborhood.
Best Tricks: She rings the bells hung on the door knob when she wants to go outside and she always picks up her toys when you tell her to. She has never learned sit, stay, or come, though.
Arrival Story: We wanted a pug so we found a lady who showed and bred pugs so drove out to see her puppies. She had litters from 2 mothers so there were a lot of Pug babies to choose from. She brought them all out to the yard and 1 of them, Gracie, kept running after my husband, Bill, and would not leave him alone. I told him that I thought she was too leggy and her nose was too short, but he insisted that she had chosen HIM. Naturally we brought her home with us. She isn't that leggy anymore and we have had her nares opened. She is so cute.
Bio: We call her the Amazing Gracie because she really had problems in her first months. We fought demodex, she was allergic to her vaccines, and then went into cardiac arrest after her spaying operation. They pulled her through but she had to be moved to a veterinary intensive care facility and was in a coma for 2 days. They thought she would probaby have to be put down but we could not bring ourselves to say "yes". She was and is our baby! Her system shut-down caused her to be blind among other things. It took her weeks and weeks, but now she can see and runs around like a wild dog. She is truly amazing.
I love to help wrap the Christmas presents. In fact, I love it so much that I unwrapped some of the most beautiful ones that were under the tree. I just wanted to wrap them again. I don't know why mommy is so frustrated with me. She keeps hollering "Gracie! Stop that!"
I guess she just doesn't understand.
Oh, boy! It's been such a long time since I wrote in my diary. I really do love to put down my thoughts, but I have been so busy playing in Spoiled Pugs, Pugs of the Round Table, and Holiday Pup Express that I haven't had much time for anything else.
I did get a notice the other day that I was a finalist in a Christmas dog picture contest. That was fun to know. My furends must vote for me to win, though. Hope I have enough furends!
Daddy put up our Christmas trees last week and I have been having fun eating the lights off of them. Needless to say he is not very happy with me right now. He really loves decorating for Christmas and mommy calls him "Clark Griswald". I don' know who that is, but he laughs everytime mommy says it.
Well, I must get back to my play. Hope everyone is having a really nice time. Pug hugs to all. AG
