I was working in the yard over the weekend and found Lucy's porcupine among the weeds in the bushes. It brought back a flood of memories. It was her first toy. I would tell her that it was her baby. I miss my Lucy.
Sable's brother, Spike, came over for a visit over the weekend. Sable is not too interested and shows no connection but Joe loves to pester him when he is here. Spike is a few inches taller than Sable and about 15 pounds lighter. He's very affectionate/friendly like Sable.
Thanks to all of you that have commented and emailed with such kind words. Needless to say, it is not the same around here without Lucy. She was my first dog of my own. She was such a good guard dog and yet so lady like. I miss hearing her dainty footsteps throughout the house.
I suppose one saving grace is that I have been so busy at work. The busiest we have been in some time and our work for the holidays is at it's peak. If the work in advertising is any indication the economy must be rebounding. At any rate, my work load has made the loss of Lucy more bearable. I'm afraid that I have neglected my Dad, Sable, Joe, and my blogs.
