Miss Gracie's Monday Surprise....

I'm going to be honest with you...Gracie and I are struggling. We really miss Walt/Daddy. The house just isn't the same without his charasmatic ways. Sure... we get to hog the bed, and Gracie gives me all her kisses, but it still isn't the same. I could really tell that Gracie was down this morning before I left for work. It might have been one of two reasons...

1. I told her that she was going to be getting a bath when I got home from work today.
2. She really misses her dad.
I'd like to think it was the first reason, but I know deep in my heart it is the 2nd. Walt is the type of person that comes home and pays Gracie all the attention first, and then he makes his way over to kiss me. Walt is the type of man that can't go to sleep unless Gracie is on the bed, but is ok if I am in the other room watching t.v. When Walt cooks steaks, he makes a small steak for Gracie and lets her snack on it for a week. He has over 15 songs that he has written especially for her... I wouldn't say he is obsessed with her (well, I wouldn't say that on the computer...but I'd say it to his face) I'd just say that he is in LOVE with her.
So, today when I got home from work I was really excited to see this face:

AKA Miss Heart-throb (at least to all the other dogs in our neighborhood)

I told her that I had something exciting for her...but she would have to be patient and wait until Saturday to open it. This was her face while I was explaining things to her:


She listens so intently. So...what was the surprise? When I went to the mailbox today, I found this:


Straight from here:

Now, if that isn't love...then I don't know what is.... he even made sure he mailed it early so it would get here on time for Gracie on Valentine's Day. Don't worry... I got one too.
