After twelve years without a pet in the house, we brought Lucy home in March 2017 and life has never been the same. She was 10 weeks old and weighed about 5lbs. Lucy was born December 24, 2016, Here is her baby picture.
Yes, she was a little pup, probably the smallest in her litter. She was the last one taken, but definitely proof that sometimes the best things come in small packages. That is my computer keyboard she is laying next to on my desk.
Not long after we brought Lucy home we went shopping for a few things. My wife just couldn’t resist trying a few hats on Lucy and Lucy was not thrilled with the idea.
Lucy is an American Cocker Spaniel. Originally there were three types of hunting dogs, pointers, flushers, and retrievers. Spaniels generally fall into the flusher category. They were bred to flush woodcocks (Cocker), quail, and other game birds that hide in the grass and under brush. Even as a pup, shown here at about three months, Lucy has always enjoyed a game of fetch.
Who said, “Dogs don’t smile”? This looks like a smile to me!
Like I said in my last post, this may be a year filled with photographic retrospect. I have spent a lot of time photographing trees, flowers, birds, sports and hot rods, but I do have an archive of family and pet photos that you have probably not seen and I have not viewed since I captured the images. All of the above images were taken before Lucy was nine months old so you will most likely see her featured again and again. Have a blessed week.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
The theme this week is Time. Song lyrics or titles mentioning time, or calendars, or days of the week. Kudos to Alana for offering the first music prompt for the new year! As a teen of the sixties I was exposed to some the the greatest rock music ever recorded. We had the Beatles, Led Zepplin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Eagles, The Who, Greatful Dead, Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton (Cream), Since the theme this week is time, the question is, “What about No Time”?
What would you do if you could capture time in a bottle?
Soo…what are you doing Tuesday afternoon?
I gotta put this post to bed, ’cause in getting late in the evening.
Hope last week was a good start to the new year for you. Have a blessed Monday!
