Mandys Grace


Recommended Posts

I met her the weekend of Sandy Paws which was not long (perhaps 2 weeks) after Austin went to the bridge. We visited B&J kennels at the Jacksonville track. I got whacked by the big boys and loved on, then I opened Grace's crate. She demurely wagged her tail and softly put her head on my shoulder. I got sucked in big time. That was probably the one and only time Grace was demure & soft! I called her Austin's joke to me. I contacted her owner and arranged to adopt her when her race and breeding career were done. No breeding career so she came home a few years sooner than expected. In retrospect, that was a very good thing.




She retired from Orlando, and went to spend a little time with Marilyn:




We were all fortunate that Pam Davis was coming my way that Christmas, and on 12/23 (the day Magic went to the bridge several years before) Grace came home. Marilyn & Chrissy were fortunate that Grace left and I was fortunate that I didn't have to drive to Florida to pick her up....




She was rude and obnoxious to the other dogs. She was a people person. And, she wanted the people for herself. She was the only dog I could do nails on by myself, if I wanted to do ears I'd pick up the q tips and ask her if she wanted her ears done and she would run over -- anything that was for her was fine :)


Talking with her over the past few days about going to the bridge, she clearly adopted the attitude of "I can't hear you".....she wanted to stay, pure and simple. So young and she didn't want to go.


As I said: I don't know how much more heart I have to break.


I am glad she waited long enough for me to really love her. I even liked her. Anyone who has had a diva pita come into their lives, knows what I mean.

I am so sorry Diane. I know what a huge presence a diva can make in your life, so I understand the loss you are facing. My heart is breaking for you.
