The Queen Gracie Memorial Site 

Dedicated to ALL Canine Angels 

So Sorry For Your Loss



It is no secret that our dogs bring so much joy into our lives, that when one passes over the Rainbow Bridge
to say our hearts are filled with sadness would be a vast understatement!

We've decided that we wanted to remember each and every one of our canine angels by featuring them with
a short story here on Queen Gracie's site. The decree has been made that whenever one of our dogs passes,
we will honor them here and will place a candle by them in remembrance of the love we shared.

To learn more about Sheridane's Our Gracie:




Burning Candle In Remembrance Harley Our very first Italian Greyhound, Harley was an absolute joy! He was extraordinarily
agile and magnificent to watch as he ran and jumped. He was very protective of his
younger sibling Bella and was quick distract another dog approaching her when she
became uncomfortable. Wanting him to be with other IGs, it's how we found IGRF
playdays and got active with the group. It led to us having six IGs, fostering at least 10
and supporting the organization in many other ways. He passed at 16-1/2 yrs, led a
full life and put BIG smiles on our hearts!
Burning Candle In Remembrance Our Baby Bella This little love of our life... Bella, came into our lives as an owner surrender. She
immediately wrapped herself around our hearts! To have her jump in our lap, turn
around and fall back into our arms, melted our hearts like no other! She loved being
adored and she gave us so much unconditional love and every day with her was an
absolute blessing! Unfortunately she succumbed way too early to auto-immune
disease. We love you Bella with all of our hearts and miss you so much!

be in our family's hearts. We will always love you. You are missed!

Burning Candle In Remembrance  Herky, the BEST Boston  Here is the BEST boston terrier in the world. HERKY. What I would give to have
another Boston just as wonderful as him! I lost him to cancer in September 2015.
He was only 7 yrs old. He was named after another boston terrier (Herky) whose vintage
 photo collection I own. My Herky came from an animal shelter with very bad dermatitis
and heartworms--he was FREE in his adoption (because of the HWs). But we got him
through all that. His peach fuzz grew back and he was HW negative, but 2 yrs later he
was anemic. The vet finally sent him to an internal medicine specialist and he was
diagnosed with cancer of the spleen. He just couldn't catch a break! I loved my HERKY!

Burning Candle In Remembrance Stitch & Smiler

To our dear Frenchie "Boys": you were gone much too soon. Sir Smiler,you were our first
addition into the world of the French Bulldog.  Our hearts were broken when you were diagnosed
with lymphoma. We decided to put you through  the Cancer treatments that were deemed to be a
success. Before you had become so ill, we had adopted your little brother, Stitch, who was being
raised in a "Puppy Mill" situation  in Maryland.  Stitch, you were only with us for a few weeks when
we noticed you had eyelashes growing  out of your eyeball....we scheduled surgery for the next day.
By that time, Smiler, we knew the treatments were making you much worse.  The lump on your
throat was growing.  That is why we had to let you go....
 when you crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" we know that you were once more able to run around
and be pain free.  Stitch, you looked around for Smiler for weeks.   In a few months,  we decided to
adopt another Frenchie....this time "She" was a black & White pie-eyed, we named  her Miss Molly.
You both became "best friends"...Unfortunately, our hearts were broken once again when
back problems left you unable to walk. That is why we had to let you go.....Stitch, as you crossed
over the "Rainbow Bridge", we are certain that Smiler were there to greet you. Your  back, like new
again, you ran away together.  Our love for dogs will NEVER stop.  Fortunately, before you passed,
we had adopted a new sister for you and Molly.  She is a  "Boggle" (a boston terrier and beagle mix)
and also a rescued puppy. The girls helped each other get through losing you.  They have both become
wonderful "Big Sisters" to "Buddy" the cat (a former resident of our local SPCA.)  Will we ever be
without a "furry friend/companion" in our home? We think not.   

                                   We miss you and love you both,  Bob(dad) and Sheri (Mom) Smith
