gracie turns 1 today!

Friday, April 9, 2010


gracie is one today! this is good news seeing as at least 5 times during her first year, i was convinced she was going to die of kidney failure or being punctured by a bone she swallowed.  but alas, she has made it to her first year of life and i think it should be a smoother journey from here on out.

she requested breakfast in bed, which she got, and some gifts from her favorite store ciao bow wow.  she is chewing on a treat right now.

memories of gracie's first year (good and bad): steve in ER getting stitches on his ear (sharp puppy teeth and ears do not mix), her sleeping on her back with her legs up in the air, being a clumsy slow runner who can now lap us 50 times if she pleases, investigating poop in the toilet (need i say more?), trying to be the alpha leader of the house (we squelched that quickly), stealing our socks, underwear, shirts and bringing them to her bed to lay on, playing hide-and-go-seek, loving being chased when she has something she shouldn't, playing with her retriever friend larry, going from 9 lbs. to 50 lbs. so fast, being obsessed with fetching, completely and utterly obsessed, learning to swim at lake winnipesaukee, and being our lovely gracie-girl whom we're really glad to have.

happy birthday gracie!

  8. Aw, I love all these pictures.

    Especially Gracie on the treadmill- ha! I've always wanted to do that with our lazy dogs but they would probably hit the wall behind them and get a concussion or something.

    Happy birthday to Gracie! And many more!
