Be careful, for although Lucy appears to be a big water buffalo in stature and demeanor, she has very sensitive feelings that are hurt easily!

However remedied quickly at the mention of a “walk”.

She is my sweet friend, my constant companion, my oversized lap warmer. My sweet tail thumping, farting, burping, whining, high maintenance, ever loving pup-pup. She would never harm a fly, however would protect me to her death if the need arose. Perhaps you’ve already had the pleasure of meeting her or being included in her pack. If so, lucky you. 😉

    Yeah, I get to be a “lucky” one…having met the now famous Lucy Lui. 🙂
    Gosh, you take such nice pics. My obsessive Lucy pic (the one where she is staring at Finn up on the cupboard) is so boring compared to these. 😦

    Hi there – what a wonderful post. My own black lab girl Cleo is all of those things to us – perhaps a little more vacant-eyed and even more immodest, if possible. She and Lucy would be good friends.

    I love that puppy! And I love the absent one too. Will he get his own post someday?
    Can’t wait to see all you wonderful people, and the pups, in a few more days!
