Lucy - the Real One- Not the Facsimile

I finally managed a few shots of Lucy! She is constantly on the move. Here's Lucy on the move:

Lucy with Layla's gingerbread man. It's in her mouth constantly. We call it her woobie. Layla calls it a problem. She's tried to get it back a few times, but I think she finally understands there is pain and some hair loss involved in the retrieval process.
"Here's lookin' at you, kid. Wanna touch my woobie?"
A rare shot - she's actually lying down and she's giving her woobie a rest.
Trying out her new bed for size.
"I think I like it here. Where's the treat jar?"
What do you mean, these apples fake?
Layla and Lucy went to the beauty shop today and are both sporting new bandannas. Layla loves her bandannas. She has a wardrobe for all seasons and holidays. If her's falls off she brings it to us so we can put it back on her. Lucy seems to think her very first bandanna is stylin'.
Layla was napping on the Mister's pillow during pictures and couldn't be bothered to come out to pose with her new sister. After I feel there won't be any fur flying I'll get a few pictures of the two of them together - well at least in the same room.
Layla still won't let her in my office or our in bedroom. Other than that, Lucy has the run of the place. As long as she doesn't try to take anything else that belongs to Layla. Or get to close to Layla with the woobie. Or try to be the first one out of the front door. Or be the first one out the back door.
She's made herself at home with us and continues to be one of the quietest most well behaved dogs I have ever seen. She loves swimming in our pool and has spent some time in there catching her ball. If we are not up to having a wet dog in the house we'll just tell her "no" and she'll stay out of the pool. Cool. We taught her the most important swimming lessons a dog needs to know: Where the steps are, so she can get out of the pool, and how to "dry" on the towel.
So that's Lucy. We love her! See you tomorrow. Thank's for taking time to visit.

Lucy is great! We have a black Lab named Charlie and he is the sweetest dog. Aren't they funny?
I hope you are having a great week.

Thank you, Trish! I am having a great week! You have one too and we'll both enjoy our Labs. They are wonderful dogs!

She has a beautiful shiny coat. Wish my hair looked so good.

Plus she has that"new dog smell" from her beauty shop appointment. Perhaps , and I'm only taking your word for this, your hair does not shine like hers, but your blog sure does!

A dog who dries herself on a towel, all by herself? That is one for the 'smart dog' hall of fame...

What a cute pooch!

She is very smart! She is settling in nicely. Layla is actually playing with her from time to time.

We have a big dawg called "Lucy" too. Her full name is Lucy Belle since she's a Georgia dog. :o)
Enjoyed your blog. I'm participating in the Picnic tomorrow too.
