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!!
