Lucy

This dog isn't Lucy. I'm not sure what her name is.
But I want a golden retriever, always have.

I was blessed to have two wonderful dogs live with me for a long time. We had planned on having a yellow lab & a golden retriever. We bought the lab first and named her Chelsea. What a sweet precious laid back dog. She lived for 14 1/2 years.

We planned on getting a golden next until Gregg found Bailey. Bailey was a great dane mix. I remember coming home from work to see his new "treasure" only to find a malnourished brindle puppy. Someone had tied her up & left her at a nearby vets office. I must admit, having never seen a brindle dane, i thought she looked like she had been through a fire. But I grew to absolutely love this dog. I would take her running at the park & people would always comment how gorgeous she was. I loved Bailey. She had a loud bark & looked like a great guard dog....which was wonderful while I was a single mom. She lived to be 13....I miss her.

Our youth pastor & his family have a golden named Daisy. Hopefully they will breed her this year. It would be so special to have one of her puppies. Yes I have already named her Lucy.
I originally wanted the name Lucy because I love Lucille Ball. However after seeing the movie Narnia & becoming more acquainted with the characters I flipped over the character Lucy ....precious child who looks just like my Emily...& her sweet character is so loyal & forgiving...wonderful character qualities.

So hopefully one day I will be blessed to post pictures of "My Lucy".
Until then, Chelesa & Bailey thank you for a lifetime of memories from two wonderful loyal doggies...we miss you!

You SHOULD find a Lucy asap! My dog is part golden retriever and is accidentally the best dog in the world.
One of my favorite dogs ever was my brother-in-law's dog, Zippity. (get it, Zippity Duda). Anyway, he was a giant of a golden and just the sweetest thing.

I think Lucy Knudsen would fit just great for a new family member and seems to roll off the tongue with a smile. I ran into a gentleman that had a Great Pyrenees at Starbucks. I fell in love with this dog immediately. I think I am going to have to find a dog such as this and I will bring him or her over to play with Lucy for doggy play date. Deal? At any rate. I hope that for you too. Have a wonderful weekend.

oh,yes Paige! you need to find your Lucy right away!
Labs & golden retrievers are wonderful friends, we had our Annie, a black lab for 14 years Our Rocky,a golden retriever was truly a wonderful old gentleman. What a wonderful little old girl Annie was. She was our son's dog, but stayed here on the farm with us after he left for college. Although she loved us dearly, her heart belonged to Bryan... and she would smile and wiggle from head to toe when she heard his name.
Your Lucy would take to the ocean & your girls just as all of you have. Another girl to play in the waves & take beautiful pictures of summetime memories.
Yo must go & find her soon,she is waiting for you.

OMG, you must get a dog. we got a puppy this year, Happy New Year to us and it was the best thing we did!! And... this past weekend I watched Narnia, soI think Lucy would be a great name for a retriever.

Ohh.. what a sweet post! I hope you get a Lucy too.. We recently got "Holly" - a tiny long haired dachshund. She's a sweetheart. (but like all puppies, trouble!)

Thanks for your comment(s) on my blog! I have been to yours before and I love your photos of your girls by the beach.. They look like.. Ralph Lauren ads! and I mean that in a good way! :-)

Oh, I hope you get your Lucy soon. We have a 14 year old cat, and though my daughter absolutely adores her, she points out daily that she wants a dog to be her next pet. We'll see. Neither my husband nor I have ever owned a dog. So we'll have to think about it. But they are so cute!!

Love the beachside pics of your girls. They are so beautiful! And your little one has gotten so big!!

Take care,
Sheree
