Today is Gracie's Gotcha Day!!!!

Happy Gotcha Day, Gracie! We are so glad we found you!!!!

If you don't know, my sis, Gracie's story, she was taken from a hoarder who had 70 dogs in a rural county in Southern Indiana. The Sheriff took the dogs away from the hoarder and a vet in Seymour ended up with the 20 puppies (sadly, the 50 adult dogs were all euthanized for health issues and aggression, they said). The vet kept the 20 puppies in a cage for about six weeks, until we found Gracie on Petfinder. You can read more about Gracie's story here, she has her own Squidoo lens :)

Mum and I went down to Seymour to see her, and she took to me really well! (I can be a feisty one, sometimes). That day was a very special day, because it was the day we found Gracie, and Gracie found her furever home!

Here's a pic of Gracie on the first day she came to live with us on March 7th, 2006, she was about 6 months old!

That day we ran, and ran, and ran around the backyard. It was a nice, sunny, somewhat warm day for March, just like today!

This is the first pic ever taken of me and Gracie together the day after we adopted her. Mum had to teach her to sit and stay first :). She picked it up right away!

We soon found out that Gracie loves the water from the hose. That's when her Border Collie side comes out and she gets super manic and crazy over the water!

Gracie has taken some time to get used to not being stressed at agility trials, but she's been doing super good at them lately, and she loves training and trialing now. Go Gracie!

Gracie's favorite trick in the entire universe is 'wave.' She could do it over, and over, and over...

And this is Mum's most favorite pic of our Gracie Girl. It really shows just how sweet, happy, kind, caring, gentle, loving, and fun she is!

We love you Gracie!!!!!
