Gracie is a pibble mix and is just amazingly sensitive and emotional. I’m so used to my elderly labrador, who generally does not care unless it’s the fire alarm, fireworks, or thunder. Outside of LOUD NOISES OMG she’s the chillest old dog. So when Gracie has these frankly inexplicable behaviors, I’m always taken a little aback.

She’s a sweet dog, though. And maybe next time I need to scare her into being a good dog, I should just buy a fake santa beard to wear while lecturing her fruitlessly.
