Goodbye Old Friend

June 10, 1998 - January 31, 2011
Known to eat packing peanuts, silk hankies and starfish...

favorite phrase "ride in the car"...
favorite destination: the bank

afraid of thunder, wind, rain, the vacuum....

...not afraid of cats


I miss my shadow.


  1. What a beautiful girl! I was sorry to read about her passing. Our dogs are such wonderful companions and friends. I know she will be missed.

  2. Aww, Jan, so sorry about Gracie. She looks like an absolute angel of a dog.

  3. Oh, I am soooo sorry. Our pets are such a big part of the family that when they pass on, it's so very hard. Just think of all the wonderful memories you had with sweet.
    Hugs to you and so sorry for your loss,

  4. so sorry bout your loss i have been there and after 3 years i can't say is much better thank goodness i have my cat to make me smile everyday....i had hoped to have a another boxer by now but i think losing our Jordan was harder on hubby then i knew...

  5. I'm so, so sorry that your beloved Gracie has passed on. Sending you a huge HUG...

  6. What a great tribute to Gracie. I have tears in my eyes, but I had a good chuckle after seeing the shot of her checking out that giant kitty. I bet she kept you entertained 24/7. Such a sweetheart!

  7. So sad for you. Webster's favorite car ride is also to the bank. The loss of a pet is awful and we share your sorrow. Gracie would want you to get another shadow very soon.

  8. Your Gracie and my Jakie were very close in age. I feel everything you are feeling right now. My heart still hurts from losing him, but I believe we will see each other again.
    Our pets are such a huge part of our lives and it's hard to not do the daily things that were done for them and by them. I keep expecting to see him at the window looking for me.
    My prayers are with you.

  9. So sorry to hear! Sending you hugs and keeping you in my thoughts.

  10. Oh Jan, I am so sorry about your loss of Gracie. I know she a family memeber you will miss desperately. hugs♥olive

  11. I was just visiting Olive Out and saw your button on her sidebar. I am so sorry for your loss. Our pets are members of our family and it hurts deeply when they have to leave us. I just lost my 27 year old kitty 2 weeks ago. I am heartbroken too. When he first came to live with us he was raised by my cocker spaniel, so my kitty had doggie traits.
    Your Gracie is beautiful and I can tell she received lots of love in your home. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  12. So sorry for your loss! It is hard to lose your best bud!

  13. I feel so sorry for your loss Jan. Gracie will never be replaced but her memories will live on in your heart forever.

  14. I'm so sorry you lost your fur baby. It looks as if she truly warmed your hearts and lives.
    Love the pic of the cat on the TV.
    May your heart be warmed by many Fond memories.


  15. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts everyone; I know you understand how a pet becomes a beloved family member.

    We're going to be okay here; the little rascal left us with a ton of great memories.

  16. The sweet picture
    grabbed my attention
    on Olive Out's side
    bar....So, sorry your
    Gracie has crossed
    the Rainbow Bridge.
    She looks like a sweetie
    and I'm sure you will
    never forget her. We
    also have a Gracie : )
    Sending you big hugs
    and wet-nosed doggy
    kisses, today....
