This is Gracie, the 3 year old female Fila Brasileiro (Brazilian Mastiff) from Alabama. Gracie starts most of her mornings by getting upside down. She will wiggle, kick and snort until she gets a belly rub. Afterwards, she wants to cuddle and give upside down kisses because belly rubs calm the savage beast. She loves to play fetch and go for car rides. The silly girl expects a treat at all drive through windows because the ladies at the bank have spoiled her rotten. She is always by my side and lays on the couch next to me each evening. If I stay up to late she lets me know that it is time to go to bed by whining and looking at the bedroom door. Gracie is my heart dog and I love her dearly. Photo sent by Sonia.
