About Lucy…

If you are taking the time to look at this blog, you should get to know the amazing puppy going through it all:

Ms. Lucy with some sort of phone filter added; she’s so lovely she doesn’t even need it…

So here’s Lucy!

Lucy loves fish-flavored anything! Salmon flavored dog food and treats are her absolute favorite!

She loves laying on the couch (as is shown), or laying on a blue sparkly pillow that I bought when I was in middle school (I’m 31 and I think that this is hilarious).

Lucy is very vocal, and is not afraid to make her opinions known. However, she is very respectful and doesn’t vocalize too loudly late at night, in regards of the neighbors.

Lucy is a hound/ rat terrier mix, and as you can see, is white and beautifully brindled brown. She is always as soft as a bunny, and has a remarkably white coat, given that she is not a fan of baths.

Lucy doesn’t eat much human food, but absolutely loves popcorn!

Lucy’s current favorite toys are her pink rubber ball and her braided rope. She once deeply loved a dog toy in the shape of Maggie from The Simpsons, which she carried around like an actual baby. After Maggie had to go off to the land of overly loved puppy toys, Lucy has been all about her pink ball.

Lucy was a mystery to her Daddy and I when we got her. She was given to us by someone who needed homes for a new litter of puppies, and as so, came to us as soon as we could take her. She’s been our baby and we’ve been her family since she was a little handful of scrunched-face and wiggly butt. Now she’s 35 lbs. but originally we were told she’d likely max out around 20 lbs. Imagine our surprise when her paws kept getting bigger and bigger! But she grew into those paws, and is the regal ย thing she is now.

Lucy snores and sleep grumbles frequently. She wakes up with big, sleepy doe eyes.

Lucy once tripped her mommy on an icy sidewalk, then ran back and licked mommy to make sure she was okay.

Lucy once tripped her mommy on an icy sidewalk, then ran back to the front door like, “Whoa, I’ve had enough of Winter, I’d like to be inside, please!” abandoning her mommy, but making her very happy that Lucy didn’t bolt for the trees or the highway.

When Lucy was a baby puppy and not 35 lbs., she would curl up on her mommy’s back, and snooze while Mommy lay on her stomach, reading.

Lucy’s favorite place is to summersault onto her Daddy’s feet, and lay upside down until she slides on her back. Then she gets a bully rub, and all is at peace in her world.

Lucy was once scared of a hallway.

Lucy can sit, come here, lay down, walk on her hind legs, hold a treat on her nose, then snap it out of the air, and go get it…. Usually when asked, but always when she wants to.

If you’re ever crying, Lucy always comes to comfort you.


Lucy has a giant mass impeding her movements. It is oozing because the tumor has run out of a place to go. She has been examined more in the last few weeks than ever in her life. Lucy has sat through long car rides to see specialists, and not only has she tolerated it all, she still gets excited when we head towards the car.

Overall, if you are reading this, you need to know that Lucy is extraordinary. Not because she’s any different from any other pup, but because she *is* a pup.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know my baby. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—

Your Lucy is such a cutie pie!!!

Thank you for sharing about her and I look forward to knowing her more as you record her journey.
What are the options you guys are looking at for her and the tumor?

    We were told that her tumor was too large for radiation to be effective. It wraps around her entire right forelimb so as of now, her best bet is amputation.
