Description


It was love at first sight. Amid the frenzied barking and prancing of a house full of Great Danes, one pup was shivering in the corner. Gracie. But when Dan Dye reached her, she struggled to her feet like a clumsy foal, raised her forehead to his, and announced, as clearly as if she had actually spoken the words, You know I’m the one. Now get me outta here!

Amazing Gracie tells the story of Gracie’s first morning, racing around Dan in the snowy yard, and her determination to prove to her step-sisters, Dottie the Dalmation and Sarah the Black Lab, that she’s one of the girls. But when Gracie’s delicate constitution starts turning into anorexia, Dan must find a solution. In three days he is baking her the cookies that will spur her appetite, launch Three Dog Bakery, and transform their lives forever.

By turns funny, moving, tender, and inspiring, Gracie’s tale is a treat for every dog lover.
