Gracie's mom says: Gracie became part of our family in August of 2007. She was just 8 week sold when we brought her home to Elgin, Illinois. We had just lost our very special Golden, Abbey, after 11 years. We had forgotten what puppies were like so Gracie brought many new challenges. She is very independent, full of energy and just loves to play. She get along with everyone. She loves to cuddle, catch ice cubes, and most of all she will anything for a treat. We hope to introduce her to water this summer when we go to our cabin on Lake Ontario, NY. This was Abbey's favorite place and I can't wait to see Gracie's reaction to the water. She has become a very special part of our family.
