Where can you find a Bernese Mountain Dog?

Generally lying across your feet!
Meet my therapist: Gracie the Wonder Dog.
She enjoys petting people, reclining on the garden
bench, and greeting her family with much tail wagging
and robust barking.
She is nearly eight years old, but loves her long walks and rides in the car. She does have a powerful bark; Lord Byron would surely have liked her..... Click on photo to enlarge.

" 'Tis sweet to to hear the watch-dog's honest bark
Bay deep-mouthed welcome as we draw near home;
'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark,
Our coming, and look brighter when we come."
from Don Juan by Lord Byron
