Last year this time, Gracie was just around 6 months, and she was generally in her playpen if she wasn’t being supervised. The Christmas tree was safe from her antics.
A year later, and it is the Christmas tree that gets the playpen. Gracie still thinks that everything needs to go in her mouth, and the playpen prevents electrical cords, ornaments, and fake tree parts for becoming lunch. What a difference a year makes. (Look how different she looks from a year ago too!)
And for those of you who follow her adventures, she passed the test for her Novice Tricks title. Tricks are wonderful for therapy dog adventures, especially when we’re with kids, which Gracie really enjoys. So we are now working on the tricks for her Intermediate title. I’m trying to teach her to crawl, and to balance a treat on her nose, which the kids will love. Stay tuned!
