This is a photograph I took of Ms. Gracie Metz, one of the dogs that I take care of in Oceanside when her humans go out of town.
She is a sweetheart and the matriarch of the group of 4 dogs I sit with (1 of whom is my Princess Maggie who conceeds her rulership of this abode to Gracie temporarily during our vacation time.)

Gracie is an award winning Cocker Spaniel.
