Here she is…

Gracie and my daughter

Here she is…blond hair, brown eyes, cute little smile and four legs; Gracie.

She is an 11 week old golden doodle.  Mom is a golden retriever, dad a poodle.  She arrived in my home at 8pm on Saturday night.  She is a little ball of fur and a bundle of joy.

So far so good, she is training well and has a mild disposition.  I know it’s early but I will take whatever I can get.  Gracie will train to become a therapy dog.  This will start with puppy manner classes that I will enroll in within the next few weeks.  It should be fun and a learning experience for both of us. 

Yesterday I sent out calendars to family members as a delayed Happy New Year.  I am hopeful that they will add a little sunshine and warmth to this time of year.   Tomorrow I have more sunshine mail planned.

Last week was a real challenge with the cold, wind, snow and ice.  Today our temperatures got up to 28 degrees and it was wonderful.  The sunshine also felt bright and nourishing.  I am reading for an uplifting week.  Between my small activities and my new furry family member I can tell it’s going to be a great week.

If you are reading this – I am sending you my best, warm wishes and thank you for sharing my puppy sentiments.

Welcome Gracie!
