Remember Last March????

I certainly do!!  A year ago today we brought Lucy home!!  She was totally nameless for a day or two!

For some odd reason we decided to get a third dog.  We did much searching:

We met all these doggies at the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter in Chambersburg, PA:

I was so overwhelming and so very sad...but I'm sure they all got good homes!

Then I found this little girl at The Humane Society of Washington County in Hagerstown, MD:

You can read our story of her here:  Molly .  She just wasn't the right fit, but again, this is another Humane Society that is so sad and overwhelming (I guess they all are).

Then on their site one day, I came across this:

Cute as can be!!  After several days, she was still listed so we went and had a look.  They had named her Fawn and her back end would wag with her tail.  Absolutely adorable and I feel in love!  Additional Photo:

Yep, we couldn't resist and since Keyser and Toby were in the car..we did the meet and greet the same day. We then filled out the paperwork, got approved and then she was sent to the Vet to be spayed.

We didn't care for the name "Fawn" as it didn't seem to suit her.  We tried a list:  Addy, Maddy, Bella, Elsie, etc....but Lucy seemed to fit best!  We did have some adjustment issues but nothing overly bad and a year later I am so very glad we took the time to search, made no rash decisions, admitted when it wasn't a fit, and waited to the perfect one was found - and that was our Lucy.  Some photos from the past year:

She just loves Keyser!!  She likes the cats and Toby too...but she LOVES Keyser!!
