Happy birthday Lucy, my Golden Girl! 11!!
Lovely Lucy turned 11 this week -- so hard to imagine she is now this fine age. She came to my parents at around 7 when retired by her breeder, and then came with me to Ireland when my father got a bit unstable on his feet. She is the most darling dog, with the sweetest little face and nature -- though she is prone to arriving downstairs with a sock or underwear!:eek:
She is still going strong and likes a nice long walk though she is slower and likes to take her time having a proper sniff of things she comes across. She of all my dogs makes me laugh all the time -- she always seems to be doing something funny. She lets the cats and other dogs know their place with a single loud bark if they come too close when she is guarding a dirty sock, for example. And cats she just finds generally insulting -- fine if they go about their business but quite impertinent if they jump up near her in her favourite position on the top of the back of the sofa...:rolleyes:
Here she is in one of the rare moments when she deigned to let Quincy snooze nearby...
