Found on the road...

All of my pets have been rescued in one way or another. I guess the bloggity world likes to post pictures of dogs on Fridays, but I've never been very good at following rules so here she is, in all her spoiled rotteness, my little hundred pound girl, Her Tailness, Miss Lucy Lu.

Miss Lu was found 9 years ago by a former housemate on I-69. For you non-Michiganders, that's a four lane highway, i.e. a very dangerous place for a doggy to be. You can't tell from this picture but she's missing her left ear flap. She came to us that way and we often wonder how that happened, but not for too long because whatever it is, it must have been unpleasant and we just can't bear to think of anyone hurting our precious Lu! We are big softies that way.

She is very sensitive to high pitched noises, thunder, sirens and fireworks. When she's outside and a siren sounds in the distance, she can often be heard howling along in tune! In Michigan we have tornados so they test the tornado sirens monthly. At noon on the first Friday of every month from April through September Lu can be found at my elbow, whining and crying at me to please make it stop, Mommy!

I often refer to Lucy as my Nana dog. She has always been so good with the babies and small children. As they get older she seems to understand that they should know better and is decidedly less patient. If only she were nicer to the cat, she would be the perfect dog!

This is not my best picture of her, but I will have to figure out how to use my scanner to post the one that shows her true personality. That will be the one where she's carrying her security dish and her tail is wagging so fast you can't even see it.

For extra credit? Find the fork in this picture! Yup, that's the usual state of my family room. What can I say? I'm surrounded by handsome young slobs who ignore me!
