A volunteer writes: “She’s a Lady, She’s got Style, She’s got Grace. She’s a Winner.” This song popped into my head the first time I was with Lucy, an elegant, gentle six year old dame, brought together with sibling Angel as their owners did not have time for their pets anymore. Lucy has been outstandingly cared for. She is a healthy, lively, well groomed, well mannered, sociable and affectionate family dog, good with her kind (and in particular with Angel), children and strangers, lizards and snakes, but not with cats. She is also said to be independent, playful and pushy. I can really see her as a spunky dog. She welcomes visitors without barking, with a great smile and shiny eyes. She is a wonderful walker, does her business on the way and is very polite to all other dogs. Yesterday she tried to get the attention of Pooh, a little pooch playing in an adjacent pen and extended her foreleg to touch him. Lucy was still a little bit shy but came to sit by me or lay at my feet, even rolling on her side for belly rubs and hopping on the bench for kisses and hugs. I truly love Lucy, a beautiful family dog who dreams to once again be the pet a person is eager to see when they come home. Then, Lucy surprised me yesterday. Where is my shy girl? She was all action. The sight of the tennis ball (that she merely looked at in the early days) caught her attention and she began to play. Lucy was bouncing on her hinds, a large smile and vibrant eyes lighting up her face. She jumped, ran and caught. Give me, give me, give me. I never knew she was capable of this. Well, her former owner did tell us that she loved to play ball and teased him when he tried to take it away.This is just what happened in the yard yesterday. Lucy had a great time and so did I. She had such a happy face in her kennel when I said good bye. She is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center. LUCY SNUGGLES:
