Readers may recall Gracie's brush with death several weeks ago when she got stuck upside down in a ditch and nearly suffocated.
Last week, Gracie miscalculated the location of the canal bank, fell overboard and couldn't get out. By the time we discovered her, she was exhausted from swimming and struggling to climb out. When Hubby joined her in the canal to try to catch her, she resumed clambering up the slippery bank. One wouldn't think that it's possible to pray and shout, "C'mon, Gracie!" in the same breath, but we did. Thankfully, she made it up to dry land! (Needless to say, the cows have been moved out of the canal pasture.)
