Tonight Dear Husband Dave and I were dining on the deck, with Cassy and Misty at our sides, Lucy the foster dog inside in her crate, and Reesie patrolling the inside perimeters.

Lucy came to the screen and went outside for a good long while (for her, anyway).  At one point she even laid down in the grass.  What a wonderful sight, seeing that girl lying in the grass, knowing that prior to January of this year, her feet had never touched anything but the metal mesh floor of her cage at the puppy mill.

Done lying about, she went to the door and in she went.  We glanced in shortly thereafter to see this scene on the left.  I'm guessing that Lucy didn't notice Reesie at first (her close vision isn't great) and when she noticed her she got that WHAT THE HECK look on her face.  And, of course, Reesie is looking smug as usual.


  1. Oh!Thats so cute!! We have strays here and they make the best pets ever!!

  2. I'm so glad to see a pix of Lucy. She looks cute & quizzical. And maybe there's a wee bit of hope if she actually went outside & was on the grass for a minute...


Some day, I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
