What is a puppy parent to do? Seems I trade one issue for another. We've had 2 days of scum-free Lucy (have I mentioned how proud I am that my idea worked? If not, I'm mentioning it now. Score one for team Marianne & Lucy!), but 2 days of big bumps! My poor pup! I wish I knew how to make those wonderful flying creatures unappealing to my little boxer. It's not like she hasn't got a yard full of toys to play with, or a human standing by just waiting to entertain her. But, the toys and the human don't seem to hold the appeal of those flying, buzzing creatures... Oh Lucy!
Last night, Rob & I took Lucy with us to the Chippewa Volunteer Fire Department Carnival! (It it sounds big, I'm sorry to be misleading, it wasn't!) I was so proud of my little boxer. I had her in her harness, and kept the leash short, so she was very close to her Daddy & I. She greeted several little children who told her how pretty she was, and even met a couple of adults that had to stop and tell us about the greatest dog they ever knew, which was ironically a boxer! She had a grand old time with all of the carnival food smells on the ground- but still did a great job of listening to her Mommy & Daddy when they told her "Lucy, Come!"
I just love that we can take Lucy many of the places that we like to go! I hate thinking about her sitting at home all alone- and it just makes everything that much more entertaining!
