A New Gracie Update...

The Director, Gracie’s new Mom, sent me some pictures and an update on my daughter.

Remember that she’d said that they had taken several pictures of her playing with the kids and Cooper, and that she loved her new Dad?

Well, as you can see, she sent them. I asked her if she minded my sharing her updates. She said she had no problem with that, so whenever I hear from her, I will share the news with you.

The next email we got from her said: Hi Linda (She writes them to Grammy), just wanted to let you know how happy we are with Gracie. Her name fits her, Racy Gracie. We took her camping with our other dog Cooper. They had so much fun playing on the beach. She is doing great. Thank you again for the addition to our family. She fits in perfectly.

Then, we got the following email today: My Daughter (that was the lady in brown on the video) took some cute pictures at the beach this weekend so I will have her send you a couple of them. (She did, as you can see… looks like that left ear might be starting to go up.)

Gracie comes to work with me everyday at the Humane Society of Ventura County
. She is the hit of the shelter. She barks when she wants to go potty, and is learning manners very quickly. She sits on command now, and she also looks very cute in her pink sweatshirt. We love her dearly. Thank you again for giving us another family member.

You don’t know how good it feels to know that one of your babies is safe in a home that cares so much for her and is willing to keep in contact to keep us all updated. It really makes Grammy, Papa and Robert, Grace’s GrandPaw, happy, too.

I want to thank all of you for you good thoughts and well-wishes for my foot. It is still sore… especially when I forget and jump down from my recliner or the back of the couch -- like when the UPS van drives up or Papa comes home. I hope that it heals soon!

The Pups were 11 weeks old yesterday and they got their second puppy shots. They weren’t particularly happy about it, poor babies. One of Gimli’s ears is up more than not now, and I’m sure the other one will follow suit fairly quickly.

They both pop up whenever he looks up even a little bit and the one will stay sometimes when he looks down now. He weighs 14 lbs.

Mercy’s ear is up about 99% of the time, with just the tip of her left ear flopping a bit… especially when they start wrestling and someone grabs it.

Grammy HATES that and keeps praying that they don’t break each other’s ears and gets after them if she sees them pulling on them. Mercy weighs 11 lbs. now.

Pippin and Papa are getting very close. He is starting to sleep in my old spot between Papa and Grammy’s lower back. I’ve been going in and staying with my Master at night because I get more rest without the puppies crawling all over me. (He’s got a heater in his room and it’s been getting a lot cooler around here lately) Pippin is at 10 lbs.

Pip’s Uncle BG is starting to accept all of the babies, and especially Pippin. We’ve even seen him playing with them when he thinks no one is watching. I think Grammy’s been stalking him, trying to get a picture of them playing.

We are also very happy to know how well Gracie has settled and how well loved she is already.
Very cute pics! We loved the one of Gracie having a stroll on the beach with one of those mini humans!
They looked the best of pals already.
love and kisses

We always send updates to our breeders to let them know how their boys are doing. Wouldn't have it any other way.

So happy for Gracie - sounds like a very good life! The pups have sure grown, but have a long way to go before they grow into their EARS! Them ears make easy handles for grabbing when there's a dispute over food or boundaries between dogs - watch out!
