It's A Trust Issue



I have so much catching up to do.  I can't begin to tell you how much I've missed reading your blogs for the last couple of days.  Now that Gracie's home and things are settling I hope to be visiting you soon.  

June 1 is just around the corner.  Oh, I wish I could share with you some of the things I've been doing in preparation.  But of course, I can't.  Not yet. 
 Oh - I can say that tonight I got some really good news.  Okay.  Time to zip my lip.  Sorry.

To all who commented on my last few blogs:

On Monday morning when I left the Animal Hospital  without Gracie, first I wiped the tears from my face, then I called Gary...  and the next thing I needed to do was blog.  Why?  Because I knew that there were a group of people here with huge hearts who really care and I knew I'd find comfort and support.  You didn't let me down.  Thank you for being my friend. 
  

Dear Diary,


I was so glad to see Mom when she came to pick me up from the hospital.  She was glad to see me too.  For a minute.


But then...  "Gracie!  Don't bite the vet tech!!"  Hey, why not?  
It's not like I trust her or anything.  She then asked mom to remove my generic collar and leash.  


Then she asked mom if she'd remove the tape from my leg where I had my IV.  Yes.  You got it right.  I threatened anyone coming near my taped up leg.


Except for mom of course.  When we got home, she snipped it right off. 


It's a trust issue.... 


And I'm having a real problem 
with that right now. Gracie.
