Lucy’s living the good dog life! From Lucy’s foster mom:
Just a little update on Lucy. On a day to day basis her personality just comes out more and more.
She is a fantastic listener. She will sit immediately and look up at me when I go to put on her leash. Lucy will sit when I put her food down and will wait until I tell her it’s ok to eat.
When she knows I’m not happy about something, which is so rare. For instance, if I tell her to go in her crate (which by the way she does not need to go in one. She is the perfect angel when left alone outside of crate. I just can’t always leave her out when I leave because of my dog business). So she sometimes won’t go in and I will say Luuuucy come on. And she turns over on her back with her tail wagging. Put it this way. She knows how to work me.
We are working on shaking hands. But that is not working so well. I think she is pretending she doesn’t know how so she can get more treats.
She loves her pal, Hal who so kindly drives across Los Angeles to walk her a couple times a week. (Thank you Hal)
Last night I was sitting on the floor cleaning out a clothes cabinet. Lucy, as usual, likes to lay on my lap. I kept telling her “not right now. I have to fold clothes”. I finally got her off me and she went to my pile of clothes and started digging through them (like who cares what you are doing. I’m more important) and than she walked over after that and laid on my lap. Darn. How can I say no to her. Needless to say my clothes are still on my floor and I just held and kissed her head.
She did have a jealous moment yesterday. My friend came over and she totally went to him. He loves pits/dogs. He was able to pet her. Than he sat on floor trying to get her to come over. She didnt go. So I sat next to him and she did not like him being next to me. She went on this innocent barking rage. No growling. Just non stop barking. She did not want him near me. She’s my security dog. Ha ha. And went I got up. She was fine. Stopped. I told her none of that missy.
Oh and inside the house her tail never stops wagging. If she is laying there and I just look at her in silence she wags her tail.
Lucy is fantastic. I love Lucy.
Thanks everyone for caring.
Miracles happen — with enough hard work!
