Ava and Her Toy

At yesterday’s Shih-Tzu Shuffle we got a care package. Inside the care package was an Ava sized toy.  Gracie has many many toys. Mostly of the hard plastic kind that can’t be terrorized  and destroyed in three minutes (we timed it once).  But this cute little pink plush doggie was just the size for Ava-roo.  I showed it to her … she took it from me and sort of cuddled it.

There was some tussle, Gracie really (really) wanted pink doggie but Ava held her territory.  Here I’m giving it back to Ava.

Gracie moaned and groaned to get her paws on it.  When I finally put it up to live to play another day, Ava was sort of nesting it, keeping it safe.

I’ve never seen Ava try and play with a dog toy.  Not once.  I find this video very sweet and hope you do to.  She’s just coming into her doggie-ness a little bit everyday.  It really makes me happy.

The Orange Toy

It’s ugly. It’s dirty.  It makes a loud noise.  It’s the orange toy. I think it is supposed to a squid or a bird (probably a bird, do squids make squeaky sounds?).   

After a long winter’s day alone, Gracie needs some exercise when we get home.  This is a tradition we’ve had since we first got our puppy.  I throw, she chases, I throw, she chases, I make some squeaky sounds and throw, she chases.  It’s our special time.   I know that she enjoys this because she has a smile on her face.  Enjoy her smile… (the house is in disarray, sorry about that).  We do.

Hello World

Welcome to Gracie’s World.  Once a week we’re going to update this blog with something spectacular that our Gracie girl has done. 

This video is from when Gracie was first in our house family in 2007. She is 9 weeks old and about 3 pounds.  She was so tiny back then.

Some Hints
I think it takes a while for the videos to load... they're HD format and are pretty big files. If you click on the arrow and then immediately click the pause button. This allows the video to load. Once there is more grey line than black line, you should be able to press the play button. Enjoy.
