Happy Birthday, Hazel Run Amazing Grace!

Grace was two today and she's been partying all day. Unfortunately, it will be a week or so before I get the pictures back--but here's a few from recent venturing forths into the woods to hold you over till I get some genuine Birthday Girl shots developed, scanned and posted. :D

She loves to run--isn't too fond of getting into the thick stuff, yet, but it's been so ticky that that's not really a problem. :D

Setters are not known for their love of water, but I think it might have been Grace's first chance to get a close-up view of a stream. She tested it out but decided it was a bit too wet for her tastes. :eek:

So proud! She obviously thinks she looks smashing in blaze orange! :dog:

She's such a sweetie! :lovestruck: We have no regrets about adopting her. She has the happiest tail in the universe now that she knows she's with us to stay. :dog:

So happy birthday, Amazing Grace! :D

http://bestsmileys.com/ballons/6.gif Happy, Happy Birthday, sweet little darling Gracie.

Did Mommy and Daddy get you your very own Cuz too?

I love all the pics, but the last is my favorite. What a precious little puppy you are :cloud9: !

No, Grace got a frisbee. But she liked Cuz better and Frisbee is already showing severe wear (thanks to Bratty Brier), so Mummy will have to get Grace a Cuz of her own next time she goes to town. :o I think hazel will probably get one for Cass's birthday at the end of the month, too (but don't tell Cass or you'll ruin the surprise :D).

In fact, I may have to bring 7 of them home to keep the whole Pack happy! :laughing:

Yikes! So many birthday's around your house!!! Happy Birthday Gracie!! Did you get a cuz too???

The end of August through the end of November has evolved recently into our birthday season. :D Ember/Lil Belle first, then Brier, then a little pause leading right to Cole and Grace in quick succession, another little pause, then Cass. Thank heavens Macie and Ridge are spring babies or the rest of the year would be positively boring! :eek: :o

And madame hazel sees lots of Cuzes in the Pack's future. But she also predicts that when the novelty wears off (or the squeakers fall out), the old black Kongs will regain their Top Toy status. :laughing:

Gracie is wearing her orange vest & is being CARRIED by HRD :D:D:D:D

Are you nuts??? there ain't no doggies in that picture! :frustrated:

Oh wait, growler and HRP have "setter o' vision", something us retriever folks would never understand (I think the water washes it away or something):laughing:

:laughing: The tall one is the Hazel Run Daddy, growler... :laughing:

Here...this'll give you a bit of a hint...identify the question-marked doggies :D:

30521

The question marks to the left of the HRD are for the doggie just underneath them. The ones to the right of the HRD are for the doggie just to the left of the question marks.

Did I stump ya? Huh? Huh? :fingerscr

Although, truth be told, I'm not exactly sure which doggie is which, either ! :eek: But can you guess which two were out there that day, stumpin' through the brush with Dad?

:p :rolleyes: well I knew that :rolleyes: I thought he was CARRYING Gracie :rolleyes: :p

Okay letsee this is Gracies thread so she's out there with Cole :D

And Gracie is lagging behind cuz she don't like tromping through the bush :shrug:

Only one quarter right. :D tee hee I finally stumped growler!

:confused: I guess I shouldn't laugh...I fudged it, y'know. Amazing Grace is out there with Ms Macie and the HRD, but for the life of me I'm not sure which is which. :o I mean which is Ms Macie and which is Grace...I'm pretty sure the tall one is still the HRD :laugh:

I think, however, that Macie is in the vest to the left, and Grace is the one behind, just like you thought. But she actually likes pushing out ahead. I think she had been running a little further behind and had just caught up with Ms Macie and the HRD when I snapped the shot. I think I can just make out the spots on her rear left leg, just to the left of the ball of leaves that shows sort of orangish next to the right-hand question marks.
