Gracie is now 13 years old!

For nine years she's eaten REAL, HOMEMADE FOOD, NOT commercial dog food. This blog shows how easy it is to be a DOGGIE CHEF and how healthy a home-fed dog can be.

Gracie has a snowy nose because she was more interested in finding her tennis ball in the snow than posing for a picture!

Snow Dog!

Gracie didn't get any outdoor playtime yesterday because we had a huge snowstorm. The weather was calmer when we went out this morning, but still blustery. My outdoor thermometer read 20 degrees F but it's under cover. The blowing wind made the temperature feel a lot colder. Gracie didn't mind at all. She ran, jumped, pounced and behaved nothing like a senior dog going on 12 years old. She's always loved playing in the snow and she always wants to stay out much longer than I do!
Here's Gracie during our kickball game this morning:
