In 2014, Katie and Edgar started their quest to find a pet to adopt. After a few months of searching and visiting many dogs, they found Gracie. A little dog whose online profile said no dogs, no kids, no cats - lots of love and patience required. 

After a good first visit and honest conversations with Gracie's foster mom, Katie and Edgar decided to adopt little Gracie when she was 8 years young. By then she had spend a year in foster care.


The path was NOT easy. Gracie is not a dog for everyone. She still barks every single time someone is at the door, and if you come to our home she will bark at you until you say hi to her. 

Katie and Edgar live in St. Louis, MO with little Gracie, who is now 13 years old. Gracie's lived in St. Louis, Chicago, Indiana, and got many postcards from Paris for a few months in 2017. 



Gracie to the rescue! is a children's picture book that tells the story of a rescue dog and her quest to find her forever home.


In the first few pages, you can see little Gracie living life in her own terms in snowy Colorado. She had a good life with her original family but one day everything changed when they came back with a baby.


Unfortunately, they decided they could not keep Gracie anymore. She was not getting along with the baby. Little Gracie was given up for adoption when she was 6.

After some trouble, and with love, time, and patience Gracie found her forever home.
