We named her after Sandra Bullock’s character in Ms. Congeniality. Husband was a little reluctant at first, but in the end he accepted that she was in fact Gracie Lou. She is 6 – 7 in October. We were lucky enough to snag her from the ASPCA when she was 5.
We don’t live exciting lives. So we put things on her for fun. She’s a good sport.
When we first picked her up we stopped at Petco for some supplies. We let her pick out her own food (sniff test) and some toys.
She wanted a squeeky Santa but we had to break it to her that she was Jewish. She didn’t mind at all once she found out there were squeeky dreidels to be chewed on.
It started out innocently enough. Husband’s hat. Looks stylish don’t you think?
Then we all got silly and E thought of Lilo and Stitch.
She also likes to party and celebrate with family. Especially since we’re so far away from everyone being here on the West Coast.Plus – she really likes cake and Aunt Sara is a push over so she knows she’s going to get some. No one can say no to that face. It’s problematic really.
Just in case you think we’re too mean here’s some evidence to the contrary:
We put her bed in the truck for long car rides.
And tuck her in every night. She has two blankets. The blue polar fleece one which is good for really cold nights since it’s so big we fold it up and then the polka dot one which is good for keeping
monsters chills away.
We love her.
