When Ellie was alive, Lucy followed her around the house and invariably lay down beside her no matter where Ellie went.
Underneath my husband's desk
A "down/stay" at the front door
Hanging out near the kitchen
Or sharing a bed in the den
I miss Ellie especially now when it is Autumn. She loved the cooler weather, the falling acorns and leaves. And she loved running through the woods. Her bushy, feathery tail was a leaf magnet and we had to brush the leaves off before she came back inside.
Lucy seems to have adapted to the change in the household better than the humans have. She follows my husband around now and is never more than a few feet away from him. She was always "Daddy's girl" and is even more so now.
We have given thought but taken no action about getting another dog. Frankly, I do not want another dog. I had Ellie. That may change in the future, but for now we will enjoy and love our Lucy.
Today's quote is from one of my favorite people, John Muir:
Climb the mountains and get the good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
While cares drop off like Autumn leaves.
May your cares drop off like the leaves.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, THIS LAST WEEKEND IN SEPTEMBER!
