My new baby sister, Gracie, is almost 10 weeks old and I am teaching her some new tricks.  We play a lot together, and I am careful not to hurt her, since she is so tiny.  She jumps around on me a lot and I show her how to play with toys.  I taught her how to go potty outside and I am teaching her how to learn from me when Mommy gives me commands.  She is doing very good.

Here is a picture of us playing together with Shuggah.  We are showing her how to play with a tug toy.

Good girl, Gracie!

Mommy told me that she had a big surprise for me today - she left for awhile and came home with a brand new puppy for me to play with!

I get lonely without a playmate, except when Shuggah is here - and I know that Shuggah and Jake will move someday and that will make me sad and lonely with no one to play with.  Mommy knew that I really like boxers, like Shuggah.  Mommy said she has been looking for the perfect baby sister for me since we moved to our new home, and she found GRACIE!

GRACIE MARSTON was born on Leap Day - February 29, 2012 - in New Raymer, Colorado, on a farm.  Her mommy is a brindle boxer - her daddy is a white boxer.  I thought maybe we should call her leapfrog, but Mommy didn't like that name.  Mommy said, since my name, Anya, means "God's Grace" in Russian, she named my new baby sister "Gracie", which means the same thing.  Mommy said she feels very blessed to have 2 angels from Heaven.

The first day she came home, I kinda sniffed her alot - wasn't sure what she was - never saw a small puppy before.  Then the next day, I played with her a little more, but mostly just sniffed her and let her come up to me and check me out.  Then, the third day, I figured out she was a real dog, even though she's very small right now.  And now, we are blood-sisters - the best of friends.  Even Shuggah and my sister-cat Cheyenne like her. 

GRACIE has the most adorable face - and she gives me lots of doggie kisses too!  I let her jump all over me and play.  I am very careful not to hurt her.  And, we all sleep in the same room with Mommy.

Here are a few pictures of my new baby sister, GRACIE MARSTON.  She will get as big as me some day.  But right now, Mommy she's about the size of a ruler.  WHAT'S A RULER?
