My Day
by Gracie Phillip

Before today I didn't know what a Dog Park was.  There's a new one that just opened in Frostburg and today I was enlightened.

We entered into the gates that said 'Small and Senior Dogs'.  I'm not sure which one I am... but it didn't matter.  I was the only one there.

I ran... and I ran... and I ran

Then I took a break.  

I was parched.

Rissie and I bounced around and played a while, then I got tired.  

Dear Diary,

Today I went to a Dog Park.  I had fun until another dog came and wanted to be friends.  She was fluffy and white... quite pretty she was...  but I didn't like her eyes so I snapped at her.  Mom smacked my butt then muzzled me with her hand.  I hate it when she does that!  All the way home in the car all I heard was...  'Gracie, you're bad', 'Gracie's going to go to obedience school', 'Stop drooling on my neck, Gracie!' 'Gracie doesn't play well with others'.  Gracie, Gracie, Gracie. 

 Hey, I didn't ask to go to the dog park.  

I think they're serious about the obedience school thing and I'm going to try to be on my best behavior.  Just in case.

Glad this day's over.  Gracie.


  1. Oh, Gracie, you will be fine - just don't look in a stranger's eyes! :-)

  2. sounds like it was fun at the dog park until it got invaded by the stranger. its okay, Gracie, Koda doesn't like many other dogs and tends to snap at them too. We just avoid the dog park and cross the street if we are out walking and another dog is approaching us; I think though obedience school might actually be fun, give it a try!


  3. Oh Gracie takes time...look at me and I'm 3 going on 4 and I've JUST come around as they say!

  4. I love this! How precious to read a post written by your Gracie. :)



Cool theaters with heaps of junk food is where you want to be on hot summer days (when you're not in the pool of course). If you ...
