Gracie the Dog, RIP

It’s been a bad week for dog owners who are Catholic bloggers. First Elizabeth Scalia loses her best friend and then today, Fran Rossi Szpylczyn, a dear friend of mine reports that her beloved Gracie who rallied a bit after not being well earlier this year, went over the rainbow bridge today.

Needless to say, I’ve been hanging out with my dog, Haze, a bit more the past few days. He’s laying right next to me now and is snoozing peacefully. But earlier today he was extremely playful. So I thought these might cheer my friends up.

Rest in Peace, Gracie. I’m sure that St. Ignatius greeted you today and carried you to the Lord’s healing embrace where he gave you new life and you now run and chase rabbits all day long.

Blessings, Fran. Know of my prayers.
