Lucy is a creature of habit. And she can develop a habit very quickly. She is nearing the end of her medications for the hot spot. (Which has healed nicely.) She gets medication three times a day. It's not the medicine that she is concerned with. It's the little pill sandwich that carries it. Those sandwiches are even better since Dad couldn't find the regular cheese and got some mascarpone instead.
Another quality Lucy shares with most dogs is optimism. If she thinks it is time for something, then it must be time. She knows that one of her pills comes in the evening. She just isn't sure just what time. One evening she decided that pill time was 6:45.
Hey, Mom. I think it's pill time, don't you?
No Lucy, it's not time. I'm watching "News Hour."
I'll just stand here until it's time.
No, you'll have to move out of the way.
How about this? Is this out of the way?
Yes, but it doesn't look very comfortable.
Guess it's just as well that you fell asleep. The pills are not due until 9.
Of course I might have to move before then.
Persistence and optimism are hallmark qualities in our Lucy. She is full of both. It will be hard for her on Saturday. The last pills are today.
Our quote is from Helen Keller:
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
HAVE A MOST WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
