Gracie got mail!

I want to share with you a wonderful surprise that arrived on Valentines Day!

Gracie Gift

A package filled with heart felt goodies!

Healthy peanut butter hearts for Gracie & healthy Hershey nuggets for moi!

This friend even personalized the mailing label with our pictures!

Guess who sent this scrumptious surprise?

  Miss Erma Moore, the adorable best friend to blogger & designer extraordinaire Renae Moore.

It was all Gracie & I could do to sit, stay, sniff & then finally enjoy!

Gracie wait for it.

Thank you so much Renae, we just loved the treats...all of them!

You'll never guess where Gracie & Erma met. 

On facebook at The Gracie Porter Collection!

It's where all good dogs come to sit, speak, stay, and a few even know how to roll over!

When you come over I'll introduce you to,

At The Gracie Porter Collection we talk about great dog gear & beautiful books & movies. We celebrate rescues & heroes too!  I'll introduce you to Gracie's cousin Buddy who just became a certified therapy dog & friend Kristin Lawless who just competed at the Westminster Dog Show!



  In my blog post, "Are you a blog dog?", I mentioned just a few of my wonderful blogger friends who have the best blog dogs.  There are many that I know you will love and if there's a new friend on the block then invite them over too.

At The Gracie Porter Collection we have lot's of room to run and play.

So we hope you'll stop by, bring your best friend,

Just Breathe...

For the last two weeks Spring has been flirting with us.
It's been wonderful to be able to open up the house.
My apologies for being away,
I've been under the weather.
The fresh air, warmer temps, sunshine & rain
are helping to clear my lungs & my head.
I hope you enjoy these beautiful photos and remember to just breathe.
