I got Lucy at the Animal Shelter years ago as a companion for my Mother. Mom just passed away recently at the age of 90. I believe Mom lived longer thanks to the love, attention, devotion and antics of Lucy. She is in good health and very active though she has bad teeth having lost a few over the past couple of years and one is sticking out on the side ready to go. Lucy loves to hunt in the back yard always on the lookout for cats, birds, Squirrels and anything that moves really. She seems to know how to read a clock as she comes to get me at 4:00 in the evening for dinnertime. In some uncanny way she also knows who is at the front gate even though she cannot see out the door. Anyone but the mail carrier gets tail wagging, but the postal worker gets frantic barking. Lucy loved to sit with Mom and watch TV and in the morning she would not eat her food until Mom came out for hers. She loves people and I think she would go home with many people who come to the house. With her short hair she stays clean but she does shed little hairs around the house. Well house trained she never messes inside. When Mom was in her final decline Lucy was whining like crying and so worried. She is still looking for her to come back and I hope to find a nice new home hopefully with a single Senior again. The house will be cleared and staged in ~1 month and I need to move; I am staying in motels until I find a house. I hope someone is looking for a little sweetheart like Lucy.
