Seriously though, dogs love Ron. Our two follow him around the house like he's their god, and compete to see who can snuggle up closest to him on the sofa. The shelter dogs sense something in him and quickly are put at ease.
Today's field trip dog, Gracie, was no exception to this rule. At first she was a little hesitant about the water, but with Ron's coaxing with a tennis ball, she quickly figured out that the river is fun.
(If you cannot see the video below, please view it HERE.)
I'm pretty sure the feeling was mutual today, given that Ron wrote Gracie a poem...
A Poem for Gracie
The river was cool, but so was she.
She romped on the banks with so much glee.
She paused and waited, while I tossed a muddy ball.
Then quickly and bravely gave it her all.
We saw right away that she's a playful pooch.
Has she gotten into a bottle of hooch?
Your white face bright and beaming, you're such a beauty, Gracie.
You're definitely cuter than Kevin Spacey.
You deserve a family who wants plenty of licks.
You will definitely have your pick.
So, there you are. She's a movie star who's receiving fan mail already!
Update: Gracie is safe in rescue but lots of other dogs are still waiting to meet you at Bradshaw.
