Gracie's Post: Promotion

Watching the house has always been my job.  I love my job.  When I bark at passersby and the Mom (the nag) says, "Gracie! Quit barking!"  I simply smile at her and say, "Just doing my job."

I have held this position for the better part of my 9 1/2 years. And now, a promotion.  

Gracie Phillip, watcher of the girls.


The job has its perks.  Cookie crumbs and candy breath.


Walks around our fenced in yard which I hate  which I tolerate but do not understand since I usually run free...


Lots of laughs...


For them, not me.


Intimate conversation....


Lots of petting...  

"Down a little, no up... up...  to the left... ahhhh that's it.."

And when the littlest cookie carrier says, "Grammy, can I take Gracie for a walk all by myself?"


I feel such dread...


But equally I feel so loved.
