Thinking of What I Don't Like To Think About

Lately I have been thinking.  Gracie will be ten years old in September.


I look into her eyes and sometimes I see an old gal


But then other times I am looking at a playful pup


When I am away, I can't wait to get home to her 


She loves me unconditionally


I can't imagine what I would do without her


But I know the day will come


And there will no longer be a dirty dog disregarding all the rules and hiding under the covers


She will not be there to help me with laundry


I will not have her attitude to deal with


I hope she lives forever


But odds are, one day I will be devastated


Because one of our pack will no longer be with us


And our home will be sadly quiet with no barking at passersby


No more crazy dog tricks


All will be calm.  And broken.  
I don't like to think about this.  And I can't imagine her ever being gone.  

Today, I am thankful for a healthy dog ~ still a bit of a spitfire and often young at heart.  


Oh!  And she does have a new post on her blog 'Gracie Says'.  You can view that HERE!!
