Gracie was a deaf and partially blind albino Great Dane with a delicate constitution and a penchant for small miracles. Dan is the man-sad over the loss of his last dog and trapped in a dead-end job-who adopted her. Three Dog Bakery is the burgeoning and much-publicized chain of canine bakeries that, inspired by Gracie, Dan and his friend Mark founded. A love story, AMAZING GRACIE describes how Dan saves Gracie, the loneliest pup in the litter, then how, over the next ten years, Gracie saves Dan and Mark, teaching them the real meaning of happiness. There's the moment of meeting, when Gracie gets to her feet like a clumsy foal and nuzzles Dan's nose. Gracie's romance with the pint-size Boston Terrier next door. And the eureka moment (born of Gracie's anorexia-inducing dislike for commercial dog food): Dan teaches himself to cook and within three days begins baking the dog cookies that will transform their lives. AMAZING GRACIE is a dog-lover's treat. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am currently reading "Amazing Gracie". I am enjoying it very much. The story and the language in which it is written is witty and not sentimental. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Tamra

Such a cute story, but I still haven't finished Chapter 14. I really have a hard time dealing with the death of a pet. I would recommend this to anyone who loves dog stories.Published 3 days ago by C. Rogevich
Sweet uplifting book. If you are a dog person, or just a person who enjoys a story about the "underdog" (no pun intended), then you will enjoy this easy read.Published 5 days ago by JanM
