Gracie is our 90 lb lap dog, a former puppy mill mother we adopted from Toronto Animal Services. She’s been with us for a year and a half, after spending who knows how many years neglected in a cage. When she first joined our family, she did not bark for a month, and her tail was constantly tucked between her legs.
As she took a nap on my wife’s lap yesterday, Gracie’s tail began furiously thumping on the bed. Jody said in wonder, “I can’t believe she’s capable of having such happy dreams now that her tail wags in her sleep.”
She brings us so much joy. I wish we could adopt them all.
