Keeping Lucy

See that adorable sweet puppy in all the pictures in this post... don't be fooled. She's naughty! She likes to jump and nibble and poops in all the wrong places.
She's the first dog we have owned who is not afraid of our stairs. She charges right through the cat door and up the steps to visit Rob in his office. She thinks all the paper and books and office supplies up there are for her puppy pleasure.
She also thinks every single one of Mary's toys is hers too and chewing them is her favorite pastime. She doesn't mind chewing on John and Aaron's stuff too...
She loves books. She doesn't know to read. She does know how to chew and rip.
She loves running under the feet of anyone who is outside making it virtually impossible to walk two steps without tripping.
She LOVES LOVES LOVES Mary and no... she is NOT a service dog and YES... she thinks Mary down during a seizure is a lovely time to lick and kiss and nibble and walk over top of her.
She's adorable.
She's naughty.
We wonder often what we were thinking!
Adding naughty puppy to our crazy is just a bit more crazy!
But she is a great cuddler.
And she loves our family.
And she makes us laugh even when she is driving us crazy.
Laughter is good medicine.
So I guess we will keep our Lucy... or Louees as Mary calls her!
And take a few puppy obedience training classes for good measure!


  1. Oh, I am laughing out loud! Sounds like Lucy-Louees fits right in.

    Your descriptions of her remind me of a dearly beloved kitty I once had, who was four months old and at the wild, jumping, running, biting, tasting stage when he joined me. He turned into the sweetest, most affectionate cat you ever saw (and was gorgeous, too - big boy, a Turkish Van-alike). He loved people food - bananas, cantaloupe, strawberries, green beans, cole slaw, applesauce and more were among his favorites. He loved children and would run down to the sidewalk in front of my house to greet young families on their evening strolls.

    But, oh, my, he was a wild one when he first arrived! Patience and consistent teaching were the answers. The wonderful things about Lucy will stick around and she'll outgrow the puppy wildness. Meanwhile, she's making memories that will be fondly remembered families stories soon enough. So put up the chewable toys, give her plenty of substitutes, and enjoy these fleeting days. They grow up all too fast, both kittens, puppies - and children.

  2. Ha, ha.. adorable puppy and I have to laugh. MY grandaughters over sized puppy just started mellowing out more. (Great Dane) Love the pictures of your kids with Lucy, they sure seem to be enjoying her too. Praying her potty training goes quickly.

    God bless your family.



Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
