Today Gracie crossed the bridge to join her mom Samba and her brothers Sky, Gibson and Ocho and her best pal and housemate Splash.
Gracie was a beautiful black wavy Portuguese Water Dog with white chest, feet and that wonderful milk chin. She was the pup that used to screech at me when I was too slow preparing the meals for her and her siblings.
She was the one who would come to snitch when one of them broke the rules. She'd reach out with that front paw and swat me to get my attention, then look over at whoever was getting in trouble.
When Grace was 11 months old, she went to live with J and Splash and later T and Runtley joined the family. They lived at the lake and that was perfect for a pup who loved the water as much as Gracie. I think she was part fish and certainly we would tire of throwing her toys long before she tired of retrieving them.
Grace was especially fortunate because she had two families who loved her. J and T were always so welcoming to us and all Gracie's brothers and sisters. She was loved by all of us and will be so very missed by all of us.
Rest in peace sweet girl.
