A year ago, a sweet little puppy was born. Six weeks later, two people who had longed for a puppy of their own found her. It was a hot July afternoon, and you were huddled in the back of a crate that was way too big for you. At first we left, not knowing that you were available to take home. As we drove half way home, we couldn’t stop talking about you. We made a u-turn and hurried back to where you were, eagerly inquiring about the cute little puppy. The kind man said that yes, you were, indeed, in search of a new home. As we opened the crate and I held you in my arms, I knew you had to be ours. We were instantly smitten! At just 5 little pounds, you stole our hearts, and I couldn’t help but stare at you as you feel asleep on my lap in the car on the way home. We had to make a stop at the store to get you some food, a dish, some toys, and treats. I got a text from Reggie saying he knew he’d be in trouble when we have kids…because he was filling the cart with dog stuff! We couldn’t wait to take you to your new home to meet Lola. At first, she didn’t know what to think. However, over this past year, you two have become great friends… at least I like to think so! Even though house-training was quite a task, and at times, seemed nearly impossible, you did it! You love going on trips in the car, spending time at Grammy and Grampy’s, visiting the beach and digging holes in the sand, running through leaves, hiking in the park, chasing Lola around the house, shaking paws for treats, and snuggling at our feet at night. You are such a joy, and we love you so much!
Happy 1st Birthday, Lucy!
Stephanie, Reggie + Lola
