I Love Lucy

I can’t in all honesty say that I enjoyed Lucy’s early puppy days. They just weren’t fun at all.  She was adorable but had teeth that should have been registered as lethal weapons.

Now that she’s a little older (4-1/2 months) and has lost most of those razor sharp baby teeth, she’s getting to be a LOT more fun.

She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to play ball.  So far, though, I haven’t managed to figure out how to get her to give me the ball.  She thinks it’s more fun for me to chase her.  I’ve tried tons of tricks but apparently she’s smarter than I am – at least when it comes to playing ball.

She still doesn’t miss an opportunity to grab something she’s not supposed to have – like the grandkids’ toys or a dish towel off the counter.  We’re working on that.

Last night I was sitting on the couch watching tv with my husband and Lucy rammed her head up under the pillow I keep on my lap.  She knocked the pillow off and proceeded to lay down on it.  Seriously!!!

This weekend she got a very special treat in the form of a play date with my grandkids’ golden retriever/irish setter named Lilo.  The last time they played together was when Lucy was a baby and Lilo wasn’t impressed – those sharp teeth hurt her, too. This time, though, they had a blast.  Lucy wasn’t as tired as I expected her to be by evening tv time but she was a lot more relaxed than usual.  She had so much fun playing with Lilo and I got a nice, long, guilt-free break from Lucy.

We weighed her yesterday because it’s time for her monthly heartworm pill.  I have to buy individual pills each month until she’s full grown since her weight is changing so fast.  Last month she was 37 pounds and this month she’s 45.

We received a very special treat last week – a drawing of Lucy done by Tracy Reinhardt.  It is SO beautiful!!!

Tracy also has a card in her shop with the drawing of Lucy.  You can see it here.  You can also see Tracy’s shop here.

All in all, things are going better and I really can say that

I Love Lucy!

So who can tell me how to teach this dog to bring the ball and put it in my hand!!!

  1. So glad you are back, the other gal was okay, but I feel a kinship to you
    as I followed you all along the house restoration. And I am always so jealous
    because I have to hire everything done around here, I married tall and handsome
    and did not get a handyman. Too late to trade him in, 54 years last week.
    Curious are you house shopping come spring and readying this house to
    perfection for a sale? Another jealous moment, we are 51 years here in this house
    now, have no desire to move but need some updating for sure.

    1. Thanks for the kind words. I’ll posting a house update later tonight.

      Congratulations on 54 years. That’s awesome! We’re celebrating 35 this year.

  2. Try telling her to drop it. As soon as she drops it give her a treat.
    Good luck! Labs are pretty smart(read stubborn) but once they grow up they are great dogs! I’m also raising a puppy a small chorkiepoo who has won the heart of my 4 year old. 🙂
