Growing old with Grace

Growing old with Grace

I am a puppy princess. I am 11 weeks old and like true royalty, I was born with a sense of service and responsibility.

As I grow up I am taught to be in tune with my humans’ emotions – you see – I am a dementia support dog. When I am big I will help my human to cope in social circumstances and to calm down in times of stress. For now, I play and I learn and I swim. I do photoshoots and I dress up, because – that is what princesses do!

I love playing outside, exploring the wild outdoors, and getting as muddy as possible. I prance around indoors with my toys and love eating my training treats. I am fashionably pretty in pink and equally comfortable with animal prints. Which do you think should I be seen in more often?

My name is Grace and with grace, I happily perform my duties (being the cutest one in the room, always). As my human grows older and I grow up – you can follow me on Facebook: Growing old with Grace.

Celebrating special moments.

A special little boy arriving soon, and the best of all? His big brother is awesome and super excited to be a big brother.  Doing a maternity shoot in the comfort of your own home, especially if your due date is around the corner, is just perfect. A bed, the baby’s room and you are set, for beautiful photos. Oh and don’t forget to get some dog treats – it always helps to get the 4 paws in the family to sit still for a bit longer.

“If you think dogs can’t count, put three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them.”

Puppy Raisers are very special volunteers who take a puppy into their homes, lives and hearts for 11 to 18 months and then, just when that mischievous puppy has developed into a well behaved and mature dog, they give them back!  Many of them then start all over again with a new puppy!  This is a volunteer program by the Guide Dog Association of South Africa. 

While the puppy is with the Puppy Raisers, they are socialised as much as possible.  It is very important that the dogs are introduced to as wide a range of experiences, places, people and animals as possible.

If you have any queries regarding the Puppy Raising Scheme, please contact one of the Puppy Raising Supervisors :

Sometimes miracles come in pairs

.Sometimes miracles come in pairs

This is my second set of twins for the year – well at least second photo shoot of twins for the year. Secretly always hoping to have my own set of twins one day, I can see that having two babies at once is just something so totally different then having one.  It is just extra special.  A miracle happens every time a baby is born, but having two at once is just double the miracle. Such a blessing to be part of your growing family.

Enjoy every moment of gazing in their eyes.

May her heart be loving and giving
May her hands be busy as he/she learns and grows
May her eyes take in the beauty all around him/her
May her ears hear what is good and true
May her mouth sing with rejoicing
May her feet walk on life giving paths which lead to love and truth
May her mind be full of hope and forgiveness
May she come to know you as father
And live within your kingdom.
