Arrival Story: Lucy was found in LA covered in mud and wandering the streets. We had just lost our Golden,Duke, and we found her on the rescue website. She was skinny and covered in mud and we were instantly in love. She filled a big hole in our hearts.
Bio: She loves to be petted and told how cute she is. A real Southern Calif girl, loves to lie in the sun and hates the rain.
Well, it's been quite a year. I have been with my family for 2 years now and my life has been amazing. I even got to go to restaurant for breakfast! Our waitress brought me a piece of bacon, just for me!
Then, in October, I got the biggest surprise...a brother!
We were having lots of terrible fires and smoky days but mom and dad just loaded me into the backseat and we drove up to Los Angeles. I had no idea where we were going. When I finally got to get out of the truck, there was this skinny, shy red haired Golden named Nick! He smelled OK so we took him home. I pretty much barked at him all the way down I-15 but he seemed alright with that. I showed him around the yard and he took my toys but he was very sweet. We had lots of growling and showing "teefers" that first week and he gave me his kennel cough so I got sick.
But we are great pals now. We share space on the bed with mom and dad and we share our toys. He is teaching me how to play tug toy!
I love my new brother and I hope 2008 is a good year for us and for all my Dogster family.
Update May 7. Nick is turning out to be a great pal. We have truly become a pack. We take turns watching our fence line for anyone, dog, bird, truck, car passing back.Then we bark our heads off and race up and down the hill. We spend many hours lying by each other on the warm concrete in the sun and on the couch in the living room! We have recently started wrestling with each other. It's so much fun. I like to nip at Nick's ears and he puts my head in his mouth. Mom calls it "soft bitey". I try to dominate him but I have to admit, he has pinned me a few times! He lets me be the alpha, but only for so long!
I have lost weight since Nick got here. When we go to the park I run after him. And run and run and run. I never really did that before.
So the first half of 2008 was been wonderful!
I realized today that I have not posted a diary lately!! I guess I have been just too busy. You know, going to the park, eating, napping, playing...all the important things in my life!
Right now I am on pool watch. I am waiting for the water to get warm enough to swim. It's almost there. We have had beautiful sunny weather lately and more to come this week. It's actually hot. Mom says that helps her feel better about paying $3.50 for a gallon of gas...at least the weather is nice and we can hang out in the backyard because we can't afford to drive anywhere!!!
That's fine by me..
The weather has been so warm and sunny. Looks like maybe winter and rain are gone for good! Not that there was very much winter or rain but I am a Southern California blonde! I like the sunshine.
Mom's been taking me on hikes lately to Mission Trails. It's so pretty there and loaded with wild animal smells. I have been wearing my new purple harness. Gone is the Gentle Leader!!! I hated that thing on my nose and my Dogster friends thought I should try a harness instead. It works very well, once mom figured out how to put it on.
I'm a lucky girl.
