Saving Grace Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Grace was a little brown pooch, about two years old, that looked like a mix between a Beagle and a Chihuahua. At the animal shelter where Grace was living, a volunteer named Beth would take the pups for walks every day to give them exercise and help them work on their doggy skills so they would be more adoptable.
The first time Beth met Grace and took her for a walk, they did not hit it off. Grace insisted on tugging at the leash, and when that did not get Beth’s attention, she decided to chew on it. Beth noticed that the little dog had chewed halfway through the rope, so she took her back to the kennel and let the adoption counselors know about her behavior.
The next time Beth walked Grace, the shelter had gotten her a chain leash and when she tried to chew on it she changed her mind quickly. So, Beth practiced some of the basic commands with Grace. Or tried to. Grace had no interest in sitting, but Beth persisted and eventually, she got it right. As Beth sat down on a bench for a break and Grace put her head on Beth’s knee, she realized that Grace’s name made sense and all she wanted was some love.
Another dog with the name of Grace really seemed to be sent from Heaven. In 2005, Diane lost her grandson, and she seemed to be going through life like a robot, getting up and getting dressed, going to her son’s house, and then going home every evening still heartbroken over the loss of her grandson. However, on the third day when she got home, there was a pawsitively gorgeous tan and white Border Collie sitting in the driveway.
Diane and her husband shooed the pooch away because they had no interest in taking care of a dog at that point, still so sad about their grandson. However, the persistent pup was there every night, sitting in the driveway waiting for them to come home with a big grin on her face. After about a week, they decided to give her some water because she looked thirsty and that evening when they came home, Diane realized that she was actually looking forward to seeing the cute canine in the driveway.
When they got home and saw her that day, Diane told her husband that they were going to keep her and that her name was Grace. They tried to bring her inside and keep her there, but she always wanted out and had made herself a bed in the tall grass nearby. Diane and her husband enjoyed Grace’s presence as she helped them get through the bad times when they needed her. She stayed with Diane and her husband for the next five years until she died of cancer, and she will never be forgotten.
