Favorite Toy:
Her chase-toy. A broomstick. Tied at the end are ribbons and pieces from old soft toys.

Best Tricks:
Play dead. Beg. High five. Beg-jump. Shake hands. Spin. Long distance sit. Long distance down. Running down. Perfect perfect heel. Very very very long stays. Jumping off bars in agility. So many...

Arrival Story:
We bought her from a pet shop in Redbank Plains. From the litter she was clearly the most friendly pup. When we took her out of the crate, she jumped at my wife and licked her face. I said "Oh boy, we're gonna have our hands full here."

She cried and she laughed and she rolled and she played and she slept and she ate and she grew and she grew and she grew a bit more and then she stopped growing and remained a kid forever. For a while Lucy was the yappy pup in the big kennel we have. Very excitable and very playful. She's got a very high chase drive which she still posseses 'til now. A week later we brought in our second dog - Mateo who is a Bullmastiff 1 week older than Lucy. Instantly, Lucy became happier and quieter. The two of them became best of friends and inseparable. I always taught that little dogs or "lap dogs" as people call them are a bit hard to train. Lucy was the classic cuddle-me-coz-I'm-soooo-cute type and people couldn't resist her charm. I was wrong. What I found was probably the most trainable dog I have ever had in my life. She got her Obedience Certificate when she was 8 months. And at 9 months she is training alongside older German Shepherds and in Advanced Agility Exercises and boy does she give them a run for their money. She started walking off leash when she was 5 months old in a perfect heel position. She can learn tricks in just a matter of minutes. I can make her sit 40 meters away and stay there for half an hour until I call her back. She blows me away just when I thought I'd seen it all from her. And she inspires me to be a better person. I'm canceling the word "lap" in her description. She is just simply my "dog". And one of my best friends.

Forums Motto:
I ain't no lap dog honey.

Hello. I am Lucy. I am very excitable, friendly and obedient little munchkin. I have a pet named Mateo who is a BullMastiff. He is also my body guard and punching bag. I love long walks. I love the grass. I love people and kids and bikes and birds and Mum. I am the biggest dog in the world.
