Gracie's mom says: When my husband and I decided to bring a puppy into our home, he wanted a bloodhound and I wanted a Dachshund. A golden retriever was second on both of our wish lists, so that's what we agreed on. Gracie was our first golden, and neither of us could imagine a better breed now. Gracie is the sweetest, most loving girl you could ever imagine---we joke that she's half human because she acts more like a person than a dog most of the time. She is a member of the family and has perfect manners. Gracie has an 11-month-old sister, Bella (also a golden). You would think they're both puppies the way they play together. We can't imagine our home without those eight furry little feet running around!
