Good, Bad, and Ugly by Gracie Phillip

The Good:

She feeds me.  She takes me for walks often every day whenever the spirit moves her. She moves over - way over... on to the the edge of the bed so there is plenty of room for me. She puts up with night sweats so's not to disturb me by moving me from her face. She gets up in the middle of the night when she hears me whine and picks me up and puts me back in bed (after I've jumped down to sleep under the bed for a while) (for some reason I have some trouble jumping back up into bed).  She plays Chase Wally, and Get the Squeaky Toy with me.

She lets the cookie carriers give me cookies and sometimes she gives me cookies too.  She scratches me where it itches and where I can't reach.  She cleans my butt when I have a poop that sticks there. Wait.  That should go under ugly, right?  She hugs me too much a lot more than I am comfortable with deserve.

The Bad:

She puts me in a tub of soapy water to make me clean and tries to glamorize it by calling it a bath.  She pulls me away from good smells on our walks.  She doesn't feed me nearly enough.  She withholds treats because she's cheap she says I'm getting stout and it's not good for my health.  She complains if I hog the bed.  She whines about me being distant and says she's worried about me when I sleep underneath the bed.

The Ugly:

She has this habit of putting stuff in my ears because she likes to torture me she says my ears are infectious and so I hide really good but she finds me and pulls me out from under the bed.  And then, after the whole cruel and abusive ordeal she begs me to come on up into bed with her and dad.  But I sit, outside the bedroom, and wait for her to get into bed and start reading her book.  Then, and only then do I know I can trust that she will not touch my ears again. #MyEarsAreOffLimits #DontTouchMyEarsEver #MyMomIsAbusiveSometimes 

Did I forget to wish you a happy mother's day?
Yea well.  Maybe next year.


  1. Oh Gracie! What you don't know is that you have the best mom EVER! And she even sees everything from YOUR viewpoint. Marissa looks like a teenager in this picture, she is so beautiful!

  2. But your mom loves you,, and that makes up for everything!

  3. I think you have a good mom, Gracie, and I think you need to treat her a little bit better :) Remember, she does control that bath water and the amount of treats you get.


  4. GRACIE your mom is the best. You should never use the word 'abusive' even lightly to describe her. Those cookie carriers you are mooching off look pretty darn cute. REMEMBER to stay on your side of the bed. You are a PRECIOUS pup.

  5. Gracie, you're one in a million, as is your mom!

  6. Gracie, I think all doggies hate to have their ears cleaned! I say you have the BEST MOM ever! Marissa is so pretty with the bouquet of flowers. Hope you guys enjoy the rest of today!

  7. Dear Gracie,
    You don't have it so bad. MY mom wakes me from a good sleep to shove me out the door, tells me to go potty when I don't have to, and then she tells me she will not let me out at 4 a.m. if I don't do it now. That's nerve, right?



Cool theaters with heaps of junk food is where you want to be on hot summer days (when you're not in the pool of course). If you ...
