We had our Gracie for thirteen and a half years. Last week we had to put her to sleep. Her poor hips couldn’t take it any longer. She was a collie,shepard mix and got the bad hips from the shepard I suppose.

However, she was the most beautiful, gentle little girl that ever lived. She was older when we had our first grandchildren, bujt you would have thought they were her pups. She watched over them and took care of them like a mother.

It’s been over a week now and my wife and I still look for her, whenever we walk in the house. It’s lonely without her around. She was our best friend and we sure miss her.
