Gracie Bell may look like a cover model for “Garden & Gun,” but the truth is, her modeling career is on the decline. But Gracie doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight with a 2-year-old. “Since having a child, she has been such a patient and loving dog, despite getting her tail yanked by a young boy,” owner Danielle Calhoon says. Posing for fewer pictures means the 6-year-old chocolate lab, named after the “Friday Night Lights” character, has more time for her favorite activities. You may see Gracie at the White Rock area dog park — where she accidentally swallowed a tennis ball — or swimming in the lake. “She hates when it rains or when I give her a bath,” Calhoon says, “but she gets in that lake, and we have a hard time getting her out.”
