Book Trailer for THE HOUSE

Tuesday, June 22, 2021


Because yesterday was the first day of summer, I thought I'd share with you our Summer without end.  It's hard to believe this girl is nine years old already.  She is friendly and kind, loves chocolate, karate, doing handstands, and does not have a mean bone in her body.  Except towards her sister, at times.  Then she does.  Haha.  She will be ten in December.  

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

We are sticking close to home, mostly.  Gracie is very needy these days.  My sister will be here to care for her for a couple of days in August so we can enjoy a few days and nights at the beach.

We are making the most of our time with our old girl.  A vet visit a couple weeks ago about put us in the poor house with tests for her but results were good. An Xray showed her heart to be in good shape and blood work all came back good.  

She has some dementia and trouble seeing and hearing.  But we work with her.

During our walk, my daughter taking a pic of her daughter, Summer.


  1. I haven't seen summer in a long time. She just gets more and more beautiful. Amazing how fast she has grown. I am so glad that Gracie is doing well for her age!

  2. summer is growing in leaps and bounds. very pretty young lady. please give Gracie our love. a big hug. our mira has nine lives and even though the grim reaper is knocking at the door she keeps fighting to chase him away. she is blind in both eyes and learning a new normal. it's tough 24/7 care . hubby and i are sick too. but we find joy in simple momements, like you do with gracie. take care.

  3. When Summer was little, I fell in love with her. There was something so special about her. I haven't seen her picture for a long time now. And look at her, still so beautiful and special. Thanks for sharing her photo. Gracie is hanging in there, I will tell Samson. Being a bigger dog, he's ageing faster. I bought a portable AC unit for him. I think he appreciates it. He's going to the vet for a check up next week. He sends XOXOXOs to Gracie.

  4. SWEET SUMMER! She is beautiful and I know you love her SO much! My Daughter just paid a bunch of $$ at the vet too. Their french bulldog Frankie has allergies. Tell Gracie I said HI! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!



 This is the hard part.   The watching as she falls in her own bowel movements.  The watching as she staggers around, trying to find her way...
