Some sad news...

I just found out this evening that my first girlfriend, Gracie, was crossing the Rainbow Bridge today. When I was just a young pup, my dog nanny would walk us together and Gracie taught me how to be a well-behaved, polite young pup. She'd never bite at me or growl, just lift a lip when I'd get out of line. She was a sweet old black and tan shepherd/collie mix. Please say your prayers for her Mommy tonight as I know she will feel as if a part of her heart is missing. And then give your people a snuggle and think that Gracie is now running around like a young pup once again. 

'Til we meet again...say goodnight, Gracie.

Hey Petey,
Nice to meet you! We're pals with Asta. We're so sorry to hear about Gracie. But she is pain free now & romping around with Mama's other doggies that live at the bridge. Bet they are having lots of fun playing.
Stop & visit our blog sometime. We're wire fox terriers & live in Iowa. Have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Run like the wind, Miss Gracie!
