Bunny - Pip Banquet

Dear Diary,

Today Mom cleaned the house.  She said she hadn't cleaned it since before her surgery and that there were dust bunnies the size of my head.  Really?  The vacuum cleaner is annoying to say the least and it was running for over an hour.  Geesh.  Can't a girl get any sleep around here?  

Anyways...  at the first smell of Mr. Clean, I started to sneeze.  I hate it when she brings that stuff out.  Then to top it off, she started spraying something called Pledge all over everything.  Aaaaa chooo!  

And that's not the half of it.  She spied me sitting in my chair, guarding the house and minding my own business and she said,  'Gracie, you're filthy!'  I knew I was in trouble and before I knew it I was being scrubbed down in the tub.  Then the blow dryer.  I can't begin to tell you what a terrible day I had.  

So I just figured... since I'm all cleaned up 
with no place to go...

I'd sneak out and go to the Bunny - Pip Banquet.  I heard Oprah was there, and she has a Cocker Spaniel don't 'cha know.  That would be half of what I am- hence the word Cock-a-poo. I need to unwind.

  Shhh... don't tell Mom but at this very moment I am dancing on the piano stool.  She probably won't even miss me. Gracie.


  1. Sweet little Gracie... you are too cute for words!... xoxo Julie Marie

  2. Dear Gracie,
    You will have to put up with Mommy cleaning the house and you, Mommies to that to show how much they love you and Daddy. Hang in there, she will tire of it soon!

  3. Aaaaaack...Oh my goodnesses is a sight fur sore eyes! You looks just beautifuls and I is sooooo happies you is joining us!
    Ooooooooh, dis just makes my day!

    Okays, come on and we'll get you some food and you can tell Oprah all your problems.


  4. Why is it when Moms feel good, they start cleaning and expect everyone else to join them? My mom would do that when we had school vacations. I remember her taking some vacation days from work so we could help her deep-clean the house!!!!! However, we are all thankful your mom is feeling that wonderful again. Hope she didn't overdo herself today.

  5. Hey Gracie, So glad you could join us. Things are kind of crazy around here, but there's lots of good food, music, and champagne.

    Your pal, Pip

  6. Oh, Gracie. You are not alone in your loathing of vacuum cleaners.

  8. Well, why not party, since you are all cleaned up? Bring me back Oprah's autpgraph as well as Bono's!! I attended that banquet earlier today myself, it's for sure wild and crazy!!

  14. Oh Gracie,
    I am so sorry you've had such a rough day. Goodness, it's one thing to bemade to sneeze and then tolerate the vacuum but the ultimate insult? I know, the bath!!!
    I do hope you enjoyed the banquet; you look divine!

  15. That does sound pretty rough! Sorry you had to endure the vacuum, chemicals, and then a bath! That's just terrible! You looked wonderful in that dress!


A Note From Gracie

Hey All, Mom and dad are getting the pool ready and you know what that means.  Splashing kids and wet dogs.  Not a fan of either one.  Bu...
