My name is Gracie. I am the grande dame of the E. & D. household. Technically, I am the middle dog. I arrived last January. Molly was here first. Been her since she was a young pup. She had pups herself before E. found her. I guess that’s why she never entirely grew up.
While I may not have the seniority of tenure – I certainly do of age. At 14, I am top dog – even among the humans – if you count dog years.
I used to be a Princess. That’s what they called me. And that’s how they treated me. I do believe I am royalty. My people had to give me up, though they loved me very much. I got adopted – because I’m so adorable. Then my new human died. I went to live with his brother, but he had to go to a new home for seniors, which meant I had to find one, too. So I came back to Homeward Bound.
That’s when I met E. She has a thing for girls of a certain age (Molly excepted). There was Goldie aka Andi, and Bailey, and Daisy, and Bunny before me. And somewhere in the middle, there was Molly. I don’t know what spell she cast over E. to get her to believe she was one of us sugar-faces. She sure wasn’t at the time. And let me tell you, even though she is ten now, she still wreaks havoc all over the place.
I guess that’s why E. brought Lexie home. ‘Cause she’s a runner. She runs like a crazy, undignified girl with Molly.
She runs, period. That’s why she got herself surrendered at the age of 10. She just would not stay put. Lexie has been a bit of a challenge for E., let me tell you. And they are both a pain in the-you-know-what for me.
I’ve lived a rich long life. I’ve shared my love with a lot of humans. And I love life as much as anyone.
But certain things don’t work the same way when you turn 14. Like my back legs, for one.
And these girls just won’t quit!
I think I’m entitled to a little peace and quiet, don’t you?
Maybe I’ll leave the front door open and see how far Lexi and Molly will really run! Did I say that out loud? Oops.

Not only is Princess Gracie beautiful, she is funny as hell! 😂😂 What a grand family of ‘sugar faces’! Hats off to “E” for providing their forever home and putting up with their antics. They are truly special.
Ha! Gracie–you are adorable. Nope! I didn’t hear you say a thing!
Poor Gracie! Hope she gets some peace and quiet here and there.
Didn’t hear a word, but am hoping for a nice quiet day for her. 🙂
Aw, Gracie would be a great companion for my Shadow and vice-versa. If there were a way for me to come get her, I’d be REALLY tempted. BUT, alas, it’s not meant to be. 😢 Give Gracie puppy kisses from Shadow. And ear rubs from me. 🐶😘😍
E. would not give her up! She is great hands. Kisses and rubs will be delivered. 🙂
Don’t you dare leave that door open you little devil ! Oops, Sorry E., I got carried away talking to Gracie ! What a girl. I’m in sync with this gal. Some abandonment, but as the ages pass, oh those “back legs” of mine ! None of us are getting any younger, but Gracie and I are still the youngest at heart. She lucked out when she met you just like the rest of us did.
Aw, she’s beautiful! I just love the older ones.. they’re so special! ❤
