Gracie II SepThis is me after my first day in high school! My mom works here. She helps kids who are sad or angry or even just worried about stuff. It was the best day ever!

I spent the day cuddling and playing and I even wiped a few tears. The principal called me her new “BFF.” Yup, I’m feeling pretty special.

Some of the kids asked if I had a Twitter account so they can follow me and know when I’m going to be at school or events – cool huh? So I have a Twitter account now – @GraciePADSdog.

I really think I’m going to like assistance dog work. Thank you to my other (first) mom, Leona Stringer, for allowing me to take this path – I’m going to make you really proud!
