Lil’ Lucy

I’m nearly 16 weeks old- that means a little over 2 in dog years and can I just say, I don’t know why everyone says the twos are terrible!!

I don’t like to come when I’m called so Mom is back to treats with me. I’ve just found a new love- cheese!

I’ve only nipped Ben’s ear that once and now everyone keeps their heads away from me.

I do love books. For some reason, I just can’t resist the latest. First it was a Little House on the Prairie book, then a Throne of Fire book. Lastly, I’ve had quite a time with the Paleo Diet for Athletes book. I can’t decide if I like it or not.

Believe it or not, but Audrey’s school bag provides the best after school snacks!

Mom tried kale on me, but I concluded that was just for her.

I’ve picked my own spot in the yard for my, ahem, nature’s calling. Unfortunately, they are building next door and it’s really close and it’s a bit scary for me. I mean, can’t a girl get some privacy?!

It’s not only the cousins who like the ice maker! Golly, I can hear that churning from across the house and I just come a runnin’ hoping for an ice cube or two to fall on the floor.

I’m sort of learning how to heel. If that means chasing after butterflies and dandelion puffs on walks, then I’m good to go. If not, well, I said I’m sort of learning.

I might get a ticket one of these days for causing traffic delays. No, I’m serious! Mom and Dad can’t hardly take me out for a walk without at least one person slowing down to see me.

I just saw my vet today. I’m not sure what to think of him since he said I had to be good while he trimmed my nails. He should know, my mom already does that and she lets me chew on a little treat bone or a bully stick. Those are my FAVORITE EVER!! I don’t know what they are made of but I don’t care!

Oh, also the vet said I’m very healthy and I’m not fat at all, even though I’ve doubled my weight since I was last weighed. Yeah, I’m 27 pounds and proud of it!

You know, it’s all muscle. That’s because Mom’s got me on a strict diet and we have to go run this trail which has all sorts of hills. I like it except she won’t let me off the leash so I just barrel down the hills really fast and she has to work on her quick footwork.

One day I heard Mom sort of shriek and then she pulled something off me and took it into a room that I’m not allowed to go into and I heard some water running. Later I saw her texting Aunt Beth to find out how to remove the same thing from Luke. I’m, like, totally fine ‘cause I got some medicine that takes care of those tick things. Does Luke get that same kind of medicine?

Mom, will you please let me back into the bathroom? I have some unfinished business with a roll of toilet paper.

I’ve got a new dig! My old place was getting a little small and I didn’t like it at all to have to go in it. So now I’m outfitted with a bigger place. Aahh! Room to relax!

Sometimes a stream of water comes shooting at me. I have no idea what the heck that’s all about. But if I protest I get it again, so I’m learnin’ just to keep my mouth shut.

I still can’t go downstairs. I just get so excited that I wet myself and APPARENTLY that’s not ok!

I like it when Audrey and her friends are here. They take me on walks to the park and I may or may not have played on the merry-go-round.

I’m almost got to some roasted chicken tonight. OHMYGOODNESS!! That would have been totally awesome!!

I have to chew on something. My big girl teeth are coming in.

My fur is changing from puppy to dog. It’s starting with right down my back. I think it’s going to be gorgeous.

I mean, would you expect anything else from sweet lil’ me?
