Welcome Gracie


Yesterday I brought home a new baby.

Her name is Gracie, she is 5 months old, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (Yeah, I had never heard of that breed either), and she is a rescue dog.

She was taken off a northern First Nations reserve along with 19 other dogs. She is a total sweetheart, a bit timid, but that is no surprise considering that she didn't have much interaction with humans during her first months.

A friend who saw me carrying her off the ferry said "Oh, my God, you look like you've just given birth." I'm hoping it was my beatific smile that tipped her off.

  3. She's absolutely adorable, I love when those young dogs have such big paws and ears, and everything else must catch up with them while still growing! *^v^*
