Happy One Year, Lucy!

It is surreal to think that Lucy came into our family one year ago.  One one hand, it's only been a year(seven to her).  On the other, it's like she has always been here.  Sort of like having more than one kid; you know there was a time you had just the one, or two, but you can't remember what life was like before your family was complete in its current state.  Unless, of course you had twins.  Or triplets.  Or more... in that case, email me!  I'd love to hear how you manage!  Anyway, life without Lucy is hard to remember.  And we're okay with that.  I think she is, too.

August 1st, 2010

This was Lucy's first night in what we promised ourselves
would only be her temporary foster home.

She needed her space.  Everything was new and overwhelming. 
It was hard for her to even go to sleep
{I'm sure she didn't sleep very soundly all alone out in the hills where we found her}

Finally, she took her chances and caught a few winks.

Jack, getting used to new smells - and apparently, tastes?

Lucy was getting familiar with new smells as well.

Indy had his turn, too.

So little!

She wasn't sure what to make of the cuddling...

Umm, okay.  I like it here. 
You do not have a little dog. You should.
Little dogs are not as bad as you think they are.
I can help with that arrangement.
I think I'll stay.

If you're new here, welcome!  I'm so glad you have taken the time to read this far.  If you haven't heard how all of this got started - how Lucy came into our lives and changed us from a BIG dog family to a Two and a Half Dog family - join us where it all began, at "Not a Little Dog Person".
