|Lucy has her Alamo Bowl pick|
Christmas Eve is the birthday of my favorite runt, Lucy the Little Black Lab.
Today Lucy turns 8 years old. She was born in a backyard in Mesa, Arizona and was adopted/ purchased in February of the 2005.
As my brother says "she's very smart about things that she wants to do", which many people mistake for being a dumb dog. Nope. As inbred and tiny as she may be, she's all Lab with all the stubbornness that comes with the breed and all the need for attention that comes with that, too.
Most evenings I spend my time on the sofa with Lucy leaning against my side. Oh, certainly, she can be a real pain, but in the end I know she wants a few things in the world: walkies, cookies and love. Most days we can provide two out of three.
Happy Birthday, Little Lu.
