Arrival Story:
I rescued my first dog, Ginger, just a week before I saw Lucy at the local animal shelter. I felt sorry for Lucy because she looked so pitiful. You could tell someone didn't give her attention by the matted hair. I was told that she was up to date on her shots. (found out later that wasn't true) She was so sweet. Instead of wagging her tail, she shook her butt. Every time I walked past her pen, she was looking up at me... shaking her butt. I went to my daughters house and got her crate to bring her home. She had feces in her matted fur. The smell was awful! I bathed her 3 times and got her to the groomer the next morning! What a difference!

The day after getting Lucy home, I took her to the vet. We got her up to date on her shots and I had her tested for heartworms. I noticed that she had a cough & I just had a bad feeling that it was heart worms. The test was positive. There was no way I was going to take her back to the shelter. (It is a kill shelter too!!) I decided to check some things out online before even considering the treatment. I read so many things about the heartworm conventional treatment that it scared me to death. The dog is supposed to be calm, no running, etc. after having that treatment. She is a very excited dog. She gets excited when I come in the door.. shaking her butt, wanting to be loved on. I decided to try herbs. She stopped coughing within a week so I have high hopes that the heartworms will be gone!!! *** UPDATE ~ I had the vet give Lucy another heartworm test & it is NEGATIVE!!! Black Walnut & wormwood worked for her!!! I'm so excited! Can ya tell?

Just a few notes to update

We have a new brother. His name is Cloud. He tries to get my moms attention ALL the time. Even if I am sitting right there by mom, he will try to push his way to her so he will get attention & not me. I don't like it when he does that but I usually just get up & move. I'm glad he doesn't try to sleep in my spot though! He tried a few times but mom told him that is my spot & he can have another spot. He usually doesn't stay in the bed too long so I just let mom give him some attention & then when she tells him she is going to sleep, he will move. That's when I can move so I am laying right next to my moms leg. I like to feel her next to me. It helps me sleep better.

Other news: I had to have some cysts removed. Most of them was removed with a laser but I had a large one by my eye & they had to cut it out. I had 6 stitches. 6 days after my surgery, Gizmo & Cloud kept trying to lick my stitches when no-one was looking. They made a couple of the stitches come out. Mom started using Young Living Essential Oils recently so she put some Frankincense on it because the incision had opened up. I like the oils. I sit real still so mom can put them on me. It healed my wound up real fast too. Mom was happy about that! I don't even have a scar.

Other than that, things have been going well around here. I'm still doing good at staying in our yard when we go out to feed the goats, chickens & pig. Ginger is the only one who is not allowed to come out now because she will run off & she can't hear anymore so mom says she can't take a chance. Ginger doesn't seem to mind though. She don't even try to come out of the gate when we go. I'm glad because I don't want Ginger to be sad. Gizmo stays with her sometimes. I think he worries that she will be sad too.

Mom says she has to get some things done so I better get this finished. Talk to you all soon! I will try to get back here sooner next time! Lucy


Mom & dad are proud of me

I've kept my word that I won't run off if mom & dad let me out of the fence to play too. We had a lot of fun today. We got to swim in the pond. I usually don't get in the pond because I am a little scared. But, I love mud puddles. Today I decided to see what the big pond was like. I got muddy... that's my favorite part. We all got baths when we got home. Now, we smell pretty again.

Koda & Fox didn't seem scared at all. I might try to go a little farther next time, but I'm not too sure about that yet.

All of us were allowed out of the pen today & we stayed in our own yard! Mom & dad said they were so proud of us. I'm gonna try really hard to stay close so they will let me out with them more often. I didn't like it when I had to stay in the pen.

Ginger & I got our hair cut Monday & I am just too darn sexy. We needed a hair cut before then, but mom & dad couldn't afford it. I have been scratching on my neck & made a sore spot so my mom put some medicine on it. I didn't like it when she touched it but it does feel better now.

Until next time.... Lucy
