Memories of Grace
Grace came to us as a rescue from a shelter in Missouri. I took one look at her and thought, "Grace? Her name couldn't be further from the truth." She was covered in fleas and ticks, infested with worms, had a cauliflower ear from abuse, and was nearly 30 lbs over a healthy weight. I took her to our family vet, into my home, and into my heart...in that order.

With love and care, Grace grew into her name. Grace was gentle...enough to allow her to rest beside a sleeping baby. She never barked, growled, whimpered, or whined, even when in pain. Grace never displayed anger, frustration, or impatience. She was one classy lady...right up until the end.

I will miss her cold wet nose insistently nudging my hand until I ran my fingers through her soft and silky fur. I will miss her sweet, quiet sighs of contentment. I will miss her big brown eyes staring adoringly into mine. I will miss her unconditional love and warm affection. I'm so glad that, against my husband's wishes, I drove to Missouri that day, and brought home a bedraggled, lonely, little girl that no one else wanted.

Grace was always grateful for her rescue, but she gave me so much more than I could ever give her. And so, Grace, thank you, sweet girl from the bottom of my heart. I offer you these final words, said to working dogs all over the world when the chores are done and the flock is settled: "That'll do dog, come home now, your work is done."
