So hard to believe it has already been four years since our bouncy, zooming, hip-checking, bird seed eating, role of tape chewing, neighborhood watching, Labrador wrestling little bundle of joy was born. Where does the time go?
I tried to get a picture to mark the anniversary…but Gracie can’t be bothered to stop long enough to pose. I need a faster camera I think, to keep up with her.
Bouncing at the neighbor dog, who has been watching her for over ten minutes but just suddenly became worth bouncing at.
Finding the first fresh grass of the season to eat, to better increase the likelihood of getting sick later in the day.
And keeping an eye on the goings on in the ‘hood, cause when you live within a block of a church you never know what unsavory characters are going to pass by your front door, do you
She is also a little suspicious of the birds that are showing up to eat the bird food out of the bird food feeders – she and sister Lil the Labrador believe they should be the only ones eating that bird food.
Speaking of Lil, she got a little upset that Gracie and I went outside without her – because she makes it that much easier to take a picture don’t you know – and we came back in to find that she could both bark loudly and rearrange furniture at the same time.
I was planning to wash the blankets and couch covers today anyway….
So here’s to many more years with my lovely little bonehead. She may be a lot of unpredictable energy but I wouldn’t trade her – even for a well behaved, predictable dog AND a bag of money! After all, what fun would that be?
