Sweet GracieDoodle Passed Away February 21, 2018

With sad heartbreaking news our sweet beautiful intelligent silly best friend passed away from bloat 2 months shy of her 11th birthday.  She was the love of our life and moving on has been so hard.  I haven't posted in years on DK and just now have figured out how to get back to posting.  I did inform some of the people I know here through Facebook.  Graciedoodle was in the best of health, perfect athletic weight and very agile.  We have known about bloat since the day we brought her home so always took the necessary precautions against playing or activities after eating or drinking.  Our vet told us it can happen in older deep chested dogs due to the lenghtening of muscles and ligaments the stomach can get sloppy and sway around more.  Just a quick movement as jumping up on the bed or turning wrong can cause bloat (hard to believe it is that easy).  Gracie died in my arms at 3 am on the way to the ER.  

We now are waiting for a new little girl to be born any day.  I know it is soon but when you both are in your 70s you need to not spend time "thinking about it".  We loved Graciedoodle so much and need to keep loving a beautiful Doodle girl.

I am so sorry that you lost your wonderful companion, Nancy.  She was beautiful and will always remain in your heart.

There is nary a day that I don't think about Gracie. When we first came to DK there she was in all her adorable glory. She enjoyed many of the things that Daisy does and I used to think if we still lived in California they would have been forever friends.

She will be missed.

They both are just adorable with such sweet faces. I am also partial to the darker color, but the lighter girl has wonderful eyes.  I am so excited for you.

We had first pick of a litter with 7 girls.  We picked a red and an apricot.  The breeder is GracieDoodles breeder.  She is now doing temperment testing on them to see which of the two would be best for us.  She knows all the things I want so fingers crossed we get a good one!  She said the weekend of July 6 so I don't know if we get her on the 6th or 7th.  We made our two picks when they were only 3 weeks old so it was hard to know much.  Our breeder picked the two most curlyest and more poodle like which is what we want.  Fingers crossed.  This was taken at 3 weeks and they weren't even walking!!

Yes Bonnie...Gracie WAS one of a kind!  She was a very special girl and there will never be another like her.  We still miss her so very much.

I am looking forward to seeing photos of Nellie! Gracie was one of a kind, but I am sure Nellie will grab your heart soon. Blessings.
