Gracie was with me for over half of my life. My Mom called us “sisters” because we grew up together. We loved napping, eating popcorn (her favorite snack), and being lazy in bed watching reality TV as she snored by my leg. She would greet me at the door every time I came home and spin around in circles until I picked her up and kissed her.
Gracie was very strong-willed, stubborn, sassy, and a diva at times. She refused to get her paws wet in the rain and she definitely didn’t mind if you let her out front! She was very vocal about getting her way whether it was waiting for a treat or wanting up on the bed. However, the best thing about Gracie is she was a fighter. Not only did she help me through my battles she herself battled several medical issues the past five years and pushed through. We call her a miracle dog. She fought because she wanted to be there for me and my Mom.
I’m so thankful for everyone who loved my Gracie. My friends and family who always helped pray for her during tough times. She always loved men and would flirt with my Dad, brother, and especially Cesar the past two years. I know they have the best memories of spoiling her and will miss her dearly. She was such a special member of our family.
She let us know it was her time. Her 7.5lb body was weak and tired and we let her go to rest December 2, 2020 a day after my 27th birthday. This day will forever be a special celebration of life. I am so grateful that God blessed me with this beautiful gift.
I will miss her snorts, grunts, piggy sounds, and her nails clicking on the hardwoods “ticka, ticka, ticka.” I will miss her sneaky self trying to lick swept-up piles of dust, shredding toilet paper, getting into the trash, and keeping “treasures” in her kennel. I will miss her kisses, her little light brown nose, the hair on the top of her head that stuck straight up, and her big fat pink belly. I will miss all of our memories together. 🐾💜
As I look around the house, it feels empty but I know she is with me forever. 💞
