Almost a month ago to the day, we took another little dog into our lives to keep it from going to the pound. With two dogs in our household already, we figured that a third wouldn’t be a whole lot more work, and at some points she really wasn’t. Unfortunately, Lucy just hadn’t gotten much obedience training at all in her life, and at other times she was a lot of work to manage (and clean up after). Although we were managing all three dogs fairly well after a couple weeks, it didn’t seem quite fair to our two original dogs, who had been displaced a bit by the newest puppy. Because of this, TG called the local Boston Terrier rescue contact about a week back and within less than a day they’d found a great home for Lucy, with a family who does obedience and agility training.

Even though she was a good bit of effort sometimes, it was definitely sad to see Lucy go. She was a loving little dog who really, really liked to play fetch and simply snuggle whenever someone would let her. Oftentimes while cooking dinner, she’d come into the kitchen and just sit by my feet, waiting until I was finished.
In only four weeks, she managed to secure the nicknames of “Gremilin” (her crooked ears), “Snorter” (she’d make a loud snorts right before she went to sleep) “Spider Monkey” (her climbing abilities, including over a dog gate), and “Turdburglar” (affectionately, due to her *ahem* sometimes disgusting eating habits). She will definitely be missed in this household, but we know that she’s going to a home where she can get loads of attention and she’ll make someone a good pet.


We’ll miss you, Lulu.
