Lucy - a Lesson in Adaptability-1998-2013

Heeerrrrree'ssss LUCY!
Or there she was, four years ago, at my home.  Lucy was adopted in Columbus.  Her owner got married, had a baby, and moved to Florida.  Suddenly, Lucy was a Southern Girl. 

Then her owner got breast cancer, got better, moved to Grand Cayman.  Lucy was now an International Dog.  Her owner adopted a baby and got a second treatment of breast cancer. 

Lucy then lived in Ohio for a brief layover before moving to Pennsylvania with her whole family.  Through it all, she was resilient to all the changes, and provided comfort and entertainment for the young woman who adopted her.

Life throws us many punches.  Wouldn't it be great if we all were as adaptable as Lucy?

  1. Lucy was pretty darn great. Thanks for writing about the funny quirky scared little puppy that picked me way back when. Who knew how much love she'd bring me.
