Carl Eby – Gracie

It has been a neverending 9 month adventure filled with much joy for Stephanie and our family. I am going to send several pictures where gracie is bonding with Stephanie. Our key command every day to Gracie is ” have you stayed with Stephanie today”. She has learned that is our way of her remembering that she is Stephanies puppy.You cannot believe the compliments when we take Stephanie with Gracie to the vet as every one has to stop and talk to both of them. Gracie sticks very close to Stephanie.

Our best compliment and one you and Charity, should take great pride in, is when we had set up a appointment for Gracie to stay with a professional trainer and her main task was to reinforce what Recherché has done but also get use to being around other dogs. We left for two weeks to take our family to Hawaii, but we left Gracie to spend some more time with the trainer.

Our trainer Shelby, indicated as she has met Stephanie our daughter, but she indicated she has never seen such a high quality dog that is a perfect match for NI-NI(Stephanie). She said she has trained between 2-3 thousand dogs and out of all of those dogs, she thinks only 4-5 dogs would be a possible match for Ni-Ni.This sure brought some tears to our eyes that we finally had been able to find a friend and companion for Ni-Ni. All of our best wishes and a sincere thank you for placing Gracie with Ni-Ni.
