Lucy wants to say a few things about herself:
Hi, I'm Lucy and I'll be ten years old in December. I am young at heart and paws. Most of my life I was alone in a crate in a small room from very early morning until hours after dark came. I barked a lot because I wanted someone to find me and let me out to stretch my legs, and to say hello or give me some water, but no one came.
When I was a puppy I thought there was going to be lots of interesting stuff to do, but my person was busy, day after day, for years. She worked, went to college, had a boyfriend, and did stuff that kept her busy. She had to do those things, I know, but I was alone most of the time.
Something that's taken a couple of years for me to get over is that her boyfriend's father hurt me. I started to act out and he even hurt me in front of her and that was the last straw for me. If I didn't have a new home soon, I wasn't going to exist any more, you know what I mean? I don't like to think of that, it's sad and scary.
She tried to find me a new home, but no one wanted me and they kept giving me back to her. They said I was big and loud and I am not THAT big, and I am very stealthlike. I can jump on the bed and wouldn't even wake you up. I catch a quick nap on the couch sometimes, but mostly I have to lay on my pillow or my bed. It's all good, I can sleep anywhere. My new lady two legger can't believe how delicate my sleeping sounds are. Sometimes I know when she is watching me to see if I am really breathing, I never snore, I am a very quiet sleeper. Very serene and ladylike, I am.
Getting back to how I got to be on this blog...eventually I was photographed without knowing why, no birthday party or anything like that and my single two legger with the bad boyfriend's father, well, she posted my photo on a website.
My likes are walks in the park or anywhere outside, rides in the car, spicy food, playing with my cheetah print and fleecy ball, and wearing my snazzy new pink collar with a coordinating halter and leash. I'm a snow bunny who doesn't just look good in a parka, I love romping in the snow and wouldn't mind sharing a spot by a warm fire with a non-Alpha male who is genuine and shares my interests. Being a home loving pet doesn't mean I don't have a brain, though. I have expressive eyes and can tilt my head like nobody's business. Of course, I don't always get my way, where's the reward and fun in that? Next time...
My dislikes are few: I don't like being alone and I don't like loud noises. I am so not high maintenance! I don't think I am, anyway.
I have to be honest, I don't just like spicy food, I like ALL FOOD! I had to lose five pounds last summer, and I did that by having extra walkies. I am now back at my near best and shapliest weight. Darn winter icestorms kept me from some of my walkies!
