Gracie – Coming Home

October 14, 2013, is the day Gracie came home! Today, I went to Flatwoods, met with Jessica of Big Dogs Rescue, and brought Gracie home.

She is such a good dog. She accepted the seat belt harness with no problems. She climbed up in the truck readily.

Saving a life, RESCUED!

Mom traveled with me. She kept looking back at Gracie. It didn’t take long for Gracie to settle down on her dog pillow and start snoozing.

I dropped Mom off before going to the house. Tori and Damian couldn’t wait to meet Gracie. I knew she would be having a stressful day, so I asked the kids to just pet her through the window. Once Gracie was settled they could come over and play with her.

I suspect Gracie is confused. You can’t just tell a dog, “Hey, you live here now.” You kinda have to let them figure it out. You also can’t just tell the cats they have a new dog. Everyone will need some time to adjust.

My son and daughter-in-law came over later with their dogs. Ginger was quick to make friends with Gracie. Cinnamon, on the other hand, did not take to her at all.

After a long day, Gracie seemed to settle down and sleep well.
