Gracie also had a terribly weak stomach. One time I changed her food (without realizing it) and man did I come home to a nasty mess at lunch. She spent the rest of the day with Aunt Jodi! She never slept through the night. We were up like 4 times a night so she can go outside. I believe she slept through the night the first time when she was a little over a year!! I felt like I had a newborn!
OH...she hates to get wet. When we lived in Aiken in my townhouse, I would let her go outside but if it was raining, she REFUSED. She would just whine and pace for hours until she finally got the nerve to get a tiny bit wet! Oh the joys of Gracie's childhood!
Every time a friend of mine would get a new puppy, I would warn them of all the hard work and they would call me and say that their puppy slept through the night or didn't whine when they left for work. When we got Callie, she was the easiest puppy. So I think Gracie may have been special that way!
Anyways, I was just going to make this post full of pictures but then I got carried away. I don't want you to think Gracie is a bad dog. She is my baby and to me she is the best dog ever. When I moved to Aiken, I didn't know anyone and I just had her. She got me through living there!! Wherever I am you better believe Gracie is right there under my legs. She isn't AS skiddish as she used to be but she is a little better (and no, she was never abused, that is just her personality). So if you are ever lucky enough to have Miss Gracie (or as Wes and Jodi calls her...Princess) shake with you...you must be alright!! :)
