Don't Lick. Don't Scratch. Don't Bite.

Dear Diary,

Mom says our lives are at a standstill till I get better.  No walks. No playing ball or Chickie Bird.  No jumping....  well... you get the picture.  

Oh, she thinks it's just fine and dandy if I watch the house though.  Don't I deserve sick leave?

It's getting colorful outside of my window.

But I don't dare bark.  If I do it's, 'Gracie! Don't bark'

'Don't lick.  Don't scratch. Don't bite. Don't dig. Don't play.'  

And one would wonder why this dog's depressed?

Mom said I needed a bath months ago.  Now she says I need fumigated.  Gracie.


  1. Poor Gracie! You have to temporarily give up all your dogginess. You and mom both look so sad in the picture!

  2. Oh Gracie, you must get better soon! We are all worried about you - plus we want you to come to my superhero party!

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Yep, the pictures on our blog were taken on the far north side of Chicago along Lake Michigan. My mom is still mad at those silly people for letting their dog run free. All dogs are supposed to be leashed at that particular beach, but I guess they didn't care. I am sorry to hear that there is a dog that bothers you in your neighborhood.

  3. Hang in there Gracie. You just need to be still now and soon you'll be able to run and play and cause mischief again!

  4. listen to your mom Gracie!! She knows what is best for you in this stage of the game so you can make a complete recovery!


  5. Awww poor Gracie. The No's wil pass and you will be able to play and have fun. Get well soon. Cindy

  6. Poor Gracie - girl! I know you are "sick of being sick" but it will be over all the sooner if you are careful!

    Jazz had to take tranquilizers for a few days after his surgery because he would not be a good boy........they caused him to rest instead of go "Dingo" wild doggie!

    He was so happy to get back to normal and I know you will be too!!
    Texas Hugs,

  7. Gracie, arn't you glad she isn't saying, Don't eat?

  8. Just think how good all the 'normal' activity will be once you are healed! We often don't appreciate good health until we have been sick. I agree that it's great you weren't denied food.

  9. Oh, Gracie, so sorry it has to be this way. It will get over soon and you will be healed - then I bet you'll get walks and toys and visitors! So, just hang in there, Girl it will be good, soon enough!


  10. Poor Gracie so many don'ts in your world...but we will add a postive don't....
    Don't worry it will all be better sooner than later and most of all don't qutestion Mom's orders she knows best!!
    Hugs Madi

  11. Glad to hear that you are home and recovering. Soon you won't hear those words so often!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  12. Hang in there Gracie. You'll be outside chasing cats and squirrels before you know it. And knows best :-)

  13. I hates to say's it, but listen to Momma, Gracie. She nose best right now.

  14. Poor Gracie! Mom knows best! She just wants you to get better quickly! Soon you'll be back to your old self!
