When I said I would be here only once a week during the summer, I never imagined this would my first post out of the gate.  It’s been a sad and painful week here, as we had to lay our beloved Lucy Lou to rest.

Our little albino beauty was giant-T Trouble from the minute we rescued her.  But she was also, hands down, the smartest, most fun, most entertaining companion we’ve ever had.  Many dogs are food motivated; Lucy Lou was love motivated.  She would do anything for a long rub on her pale pink belly.  Our house is already too quiet …  To say we’ll miss her doesn’t quite do her justice.

Surely no 3-legged dog ever loved the beach this much.
