Arrival Story:
We were on a search for a beagle (we got a form email from a beagle rescue that they had no dogs to match us with) so I posted on craigslist our wish. A lovely person from R.U.F.F. (rescuing unwanted friendly fidos) emailed me that they had a beagle coming in the next week but in the meantime a sister rescue (Lucky Ones) had a beagle and a treeing walker coonhound (never heard of it before then!). We had actually saw Lucy (then Truly) earlier in the day at a rescue event and decided to actually go meet her as a family. We fell in love and brought her home the same day. We are all ga-ga over her. She is the BEST! Lucy came to the rescue from a poor county in our state where there are many hunters. She is a hunting dog - we have to assume she was too nice to hunt. We can see no other reason why they would have dropped her at the pound.

Bio:
Lucy recently escaped her collar and after searching for her for 6 hours, we found her with a family who had found her and planned to post signs - they had already decided if they couldn't find her owner, they would keep her! How's that for love at first site????

Forums Motto:
Where's the belly rub line????!

Long time no write, huh? Well, we are in Illinois now. Found a few new dog parks but none as good as Florida. I miss the warm weather. Not sure what I think of this white stuff called snow. Not warm like sand. Brr. I have a new sister, Lady Bird. Be sure to check her dogster and give her some love!

Today I got to go to Petco for the first time! Wow! Full of smells and all kinds of creatures! The mouse in the wheel was cool! And the fish! Kind of like looking at the TV! We got the Big Kitty a new litter box so hopefully I won't get my nose in it any more. I am exhausted after such a great trip! Fun! Now I am taking a little nap ...
