"My husband found Gracie running the streets in Akron, OH almost 8 years ago. She had burned paws from running on the hot pavement and also had Lyme's disease and another tick born disease. She filled our hearts with love for all these years and unfortunately she developed melanoma in her mouth and only lasted 6 months after her diagnosis. Our black lab rescue, Murphy, took her under his wing as soon as we got her and they were best buddies. We all miss her very much. We have a huge hole in our hearts but we know she is always with us."
