Gracie's Diary. Don't Judge Me.

Dear Diary,
When you're owned by a human, nothing makes sense.  Seriously.  Now take my human for instance.  First of all, she yells at me for the strangest things.  I mean...  wouldn't you bark and lunge at a big round rock that was laying on the ground in front of you if it CAME TO LIFE and started growing arms, legs, and YES...  a head?!  And if it had the meanest eyes you'd ever seen!  

Ok.  That's just one of the many reasons why my human Mom is driving me a tad bit crazy these days. 

Then it's every single night...  'Gracie, roll over and let me check for bugs...'  Before she even gets to the 'over' part, I'm on my back with my legs in the air.  Whatever.  It feels good to have her scour through my belly hair and if she wishes to look for..  bugs..  then.. so be it.  

Then there's the bath thing.  It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of water.  Yea, yea, yea..  I know a lot of the dogs out there would give anything to be able to jump into a big body of water and according to mom, most dogs love their bath-time (I'd like to put her through the polygraph on that one) Hey...  don't judge me.

Now she (my human who just happens to be my mom) says I've just about got through the whole summer without bugs, and I'm not even 'protected' whatever that means. 

So why the surprise bath early yesterday morning?  Does she get a kick out of torturing me?  

I'm thinkin'!

 Then to top it off, she wants to have this ridiculous photo session.  'Gracie, your fur has grown in and you look so adorable'.  She says.

 'And Gracie, I'm having a good hair day' today.  Ahem...  If that's a good hair day then pack my bags and send me to the forest to live among the wild animals...  cuz this lady has gone bonkers!

And maybe it's time to set me free...  to bark at rocks that come to life and chase squirrly-friends up trees and run like the wind and..  Well, you get the picture. 

Mom keeps sticking her nose in my fur and telling me I smell good.   I sure don't smell like chickie bird or grilled steak.  I smell  girly.  She is one strange chic!  Very strange.  Gracie.


  1. BOL1 You are so funny Gracie! Yeah, our Mom's are a wee bit crazy! Puppy kisses, Miss Mindy

  2. Gracie....of course you doesn't have......(sh) BUGS....da bugs all been cooked by da heat. Wees don't got any e-der and wee don't use dat icky sticky gooey ting da peeps call "protection". Mom tinks dat stuff might kill da bugs but it ain't doin' us any good while da bugs are droppin' like....flys. barkin' too much today..back to sleep now!

    Haves a nice weekend!

  3. You ARE curly and cute again! Jack and Jill don't like baths either, so you are not alone.

  4. I love gracie's Diary! :)

    Gracie, you are so curly and cute. Don't tell Freddy or Buddy, but theyre headed to the groomers this morning. They're going to get a good bath, a good cut and they're going to come home smelling clean and fresh!

  5. Oh Gracie, You look so beautiful and with all that extra attention I would think you wouldn't mind the bath-especially when it is so darn hot. Your mom looks pretty sweet next to you. Go with it and let her spoil you rotten with some extra treats.
    Noreen & Reggie

  6. he he he! Oh, Gracie - Girl, the look on your face and the expression in your eyes is PRICELESS in some of those pictures!

    I would love to give you a hug and a kiss on top of your fluffy white head! You are too CUTE, you stinker!
    thanks for sharing her with us, Bobbi....


  7. Gracie, you are just adorable in all your poses. The last picture is priceless!! And your mommy knows exactly what she is doing! Now about that rock...what the heck?

  8. Gracie. Gracie.
    What are we gonna do with you?
    Most of us gals LIKE a spa day.
    Have you looked in the mirror?
    Your mom is right; you look mighty pretty, Girl!

  9. If Mom has that much time, does it mean business has slowed down? Hopefully not. Perhaps she just wants you to look & smell good for all the customers. Maybe she will let you be in her advertisements.

  10. Beautiful pictures of you and your MOM:) She sure loves you and just wants you to smell nice! Give her a hug from me!

  11. Gracie, you always make me smile! What a treasure you are, little girl.

    Now, I was just thinking that the new picture on the header of your mom's blog looks fantastic, and you complain about the picture session?


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...
