Meet Gracie!

I am a 1 year old Golden Retriever.  I was an Easter present that fit nicely in a basket...not any more!!!

Things I Have Learned from Humans:  Patience and acceptance, as I am part of a family that opens our home to foster children.  I also know how to love every minute of everyone I am with!

Things My Owner Has Learned from Me:  There is no time like the present...let's play!

Favorite Trick:  To dance with you, roll over and shake your hand.  I am learning to count - and to end the act, I'll take a bow.  I will also race you to the end of pool, and true to my breed, I will retrieve...no stick can be thrown too far!

Favorite Treat:  My favorite treat is good ole praise, being pet, too...and something for my tummy will definately do!

Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because:  of the gift I have been given.  A sense that comes to me when you are sad, or need a friend, a paw I will lend...you'll have a friend in Me!

My Favorite Places to Visit:  Erie Independence House, The Sarah Reed Retirement Center, Family Services of NW PA, The Sarah Reed Children's Center, Borders Books, and any place with kids!  My volunteer handler is named Deb.
