Hi. My name is Gracie. I am an eight month old Miniature Schnauzer, and I live in sunny Cyprus. I have grown fast since Mummy and Daddy picked me in Greece and brought me home. I enjoy playing with my brother the African Grey Parrot, but I am not allowed to chase him. That I save for the birds in the garden! I am still not sure about cats, I know they are similar to me but they don't smell the same.
I am a very good guard dog for Mummy when Daddy is away. I tell her when cars, cats, birds and leaves are going past our gate. Mummy says I am very clever! Everyone in the village loves me. I go to the pub and get lots of scratches and tickles, and even treats. Mummy and Daddy love me so much that they have ordered me a new baby sister which is an all-black miniature schnauzer (so they can tell the difference, I am sure).
