She Was Trouble

 I was sure I'd never survive that first year. 

 What was I thinking?  

I was getting to old for this...  

Don't be fooled by the innocent look...

She was Trouble!

She tried to be sweet...

 But the temptation was too much...

And the bad Gracie would emerge...

Better names for her:  Trouble, Puddles, Bad Dog, Poopy-Head, Sassy, Destroyer...  

did I say Trouble?

But she was the best Christmas present ever!


  1. Oooh I love her so much... and that last photo of her under the tree is so precious!... doggie kisses little Gracie... xoxo Julie Marie

  2. What sweet pics. I love her licking her chops after nipping at the tree! I know she's a treasure to you.

  3. Poor baby, by the looks of the last picture, she seems no trouble at all :)

  4. Ahh,how sweet! Love the last picture. Aren't they special gifts?

    See you all when we get back.

  5. She is so cute!! Glad you weathered that first year! I'm sure she is a very good companion and friend these days :)


  6. LOVE this post! It reminds me of two Christmases ago when we got our children their cockapoo, Bear. Our life hasn't been the same since :) Gracie is adorable!!!

  7. She couldn't possibly be "trouble" with that sweet face.

  8. What we dog owners have to put up with!! lol

  9. Oh, how cute! Most of us should have trouble like this! I LOVE the one where she is looking at the tree and licking her lips, you really need to frame that one!

  10. Such a sweetie pie!!! That first year is a killer isnt it? But after that who could ask for anything more than the love and loyalty of a wonderful pet. I love my little guy soooooooo much. Blessings, Lady Jane

  11. Haha, great series of pics. We have a new dog, and I am not sure how the Christmas tree will be received.

  12. So funny, yes cute! All seem to love the Christmas Tree...

  13. Sweet Gracie...what a wonderful present!! The Hub asked me just last night, "What did I get you for Christmas last year?" I couldn't remember! It should have been obvious as my present was laying on me right then. It was Tootie! I had forgotten...she weighed half a pound when I got her.

  15. I'm a new follower of your blog. This story is absolutely heartwarming. Having a new baby in my house (a puppy) I can relate.

  16. Oh my gosh-cutest post!! She is absolutely adorable. Who could resist her? Just love the picture of her under the tree. I would say that was a great present :)

  17. She was such a cute puppy! I bet that first year was all worth it!
