It's true...Gracie doesn't know she's a dog. I've heard other dog owners say that their dogs believe they are people, not dogs. Owners of English Bull Terriers have another saying about their dogs, "They KNOW they are people" and Gracie Rose is true to her breed. I had been beading all morning (and probably into the afternoon) when I took a short break. In the five minutes I was out of my studio, Gracie made herself at home and was in no hurry to relinquish my chair. Two of her strongest traits, her inquisitiveness and her stubborness, probably had a lot to do with that. She frequently is interested in what I'm beading, standing on her hind legs to look on top of my desk or climbing up next to me on the sofa. I have to admit that her interest in my beadwork centers more on her wanting to get ahold of my beeswax than having anything to do with my creations. With a nose like hers, she can't help but enjoy the sweet scent of beeswax....or, to occasionally breath too hard and scatter my seed beads, smile. This picture also gives you an honest look at my studio. Yes, it usually is at least this cluttered. It's such a fun place to hang out!
