The breed has lost one of the best there ever was, Gracie Mae, the Rescue Dog that has paved the way for GWP's. There was nothing that Carol Cagle and Gracie couldn't accomplish; hunt tests, tracking, barn hunts, obedience, nose work, retriever tests, the sky was the limit. Carol and Gracie, Gracie and Carol, if you knew one, you knew the other, they were inseparable. Gracie was the first GWP to become a Champion Tracker, Barn Hunt Master, and AKC Retriever Junior Hunter. After Carol's husband, Tommy passed away, Gracie kept Carol going, they tried new endeavors and traveled the country together. Just a couple weeks ago Carol was telling me about their next venture doing nose work. Gracie's loss came unexpectedly, though peacefully.
As Carol continues to struggle with this, she's not ready to talk, but I ask that you include her in your prayers. Sending her a card, or giving a donation to GWP Rescue in honor of Gracie.
If you have any photos of Gracie, please post them here or email me privately: firstname.lastname@example.org We are putting a gift together for Carol from the GWPCA Members, thank you.
