Happy Birthday Gracie!

Yesterday was my baby Gracie's birthday, she turned 5 years old!  We went "for a ride" or "buh bye....wanna go buh bye?"  and ventured up to our favorite ice cream place.  They serve a little treat called a doggy sunday.  It's basically custard ice cream with a crushed up ice cream cone and a dog treat on top.  This equals heaven.  I have had Gracie for 4 in a half years now, she is my widdle baby.  Spoiled rotten and deserves it all. 

It was my senior year of college and I was planning on moving away after I graduated, and for that reason I wanted to get a dog.  One day I went up to Petsmart because I knew a few shelters were going to have adoptions that day and started walking around.....petting all the animals....and then I saw Gracie.....this gorgeous little dog sitting all by herself in her crate.  "Oh a german sheppard!"...and then she stood up and she had these little short legs and then I said "OOOOOHHHH A CORGI!!!!"...  I love corgis.  Everytime my mom would take me to the pet store when I was little, I always wanted a corgi.  But it turned out Gracie (her name at the time was Fancy) was not up for adoption.  I talked to the nice old man who was there from the shelter...gave him my little puppy dog eyes....and he agreed that she could be adopted in 2 weeks, just had to get her shots and get fixed etc.  The catch....the shelter was in Paducah, Kentucky.  Um ya that's 3 hours away.  But I was in love, and drove down to Kentucky 2 weeks later to pick her up.  And she's been with me every since.  :)



This is her adoption picture that was posted on the internet,  look at how widdle she is... :)


This was the night I got my new camera and I was trying to figure it out....I love her face....


Her favorite spot...watching the neighborhood....whenever we pull up into the driveway she is always waiting in the window....


Last night before we went "buh bye...wanna go buh bye???"


Happy Birthday Gracie!  I wuuuvvv you! :)

PS:  Shelter dogs are the best!


Have a fabulous day!
