It was love at first sight. Amid the frenzied barking and prancing of a house full of Great Danes, one pup was shivering in the corner. Gracie. But when Dan Dye reached her, she struggled to her feet like a clumsy foal, raised her forehead to his, and announced, as clearly as if she had actually spoken the words, You know I'm the one. Now get me outta here!
Amazing Gracie tells the story of Gracie's first morning, racing around Dan in the snowy yard, and her determination to prove to her step-sisters, Dottie the Dalmation and Sarah the Black Lab, that she's one of the girls. But when Gracie's delicate constitution starts turning into anorexia, Dan must find a solution. In three days he is baking her the cookies that will spur her appetite, launching Three Dog Bakery, and transforming their lives forever.
By turns funny, moving, tender, and inspiring, Gracie's tale is a treat for every dog lover.

"Equal parts love story, salvation tale, and rags-to-riches saga. You don't have to be obsessed with dogs to love this story." (Philadelphia Enquirer)
"Tears will stain the pages as you read about Gracie." (USA Today)
"If you're short on inspiration, read Amazing Gracie." (Chicago Tribune)
This was a lovely story about love and its many forms. It is at times funny and at others surprising and touching. Dog lovers will appreciate this boook, but also anyone who want to see the effect that a little "grace" can have .
The description of the day Dan meets Gracie is beautiful. A "meant to be" moment.
His performance captures the humor and emotion wonderfully. I felt like I was hearing Dan Dye tell the story.
It took a few commutes, but I would love to have sat down with it in one sitting !
Thank you for a wonderful story and recording.
I was hoping for a serious story about living with deaf dog (we have a deaf bulldog in the family) but this was just a cutesy story about starting a business read in a cutesy style.
