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!
