Peat's Amazing Grace, "Gracie" passed away last Saturday in the early morning hours. She was about to turn 13 in November and was one of the sweetest Gordon Setters we've had the pleasure of knowing. She came from Lyle & Judy Wiltse in 1998. She was out of Spencer For Hire and McCullough's Peak Performer. Gracie was named Peat's Amazing Grace, because she had so much of Peat in her background. And, she truly was graceful. She had nice long hair and looked sort of royal when she walked. Gracie was very intelligent, like most Gordon's. She was very responsive to training and knew all of her toys by name. She loved to play fetch. She hated having her picture taken.
Gracie had several litters of puppies, until she got a severe infection and had to be spayed.
She was doing pretty well in her old age until she started having seizures. The vet put her on Phenobarbital and it helped her for a while. Then we had to up the dosage and she hadn't had any seizures since. But whatever the problem was, was just too much for her little body to take.
Gracie, you were a good girl and our hearts will be sad for a long time. You made a lot people very happy with the puppies. I hope your spirit is running free and wild with Peat and Happy, Rusty, Freedom, Aspen, and Celtie. We will always love you and remember you.
