My little Lucy has become very camera shy these past couple of months. It seems that every time I get my camera out, all that's left of Lucy by the time I've fired it up, is her backend! And every time she's sporting the perfect pose, my camera is no where to be found. I need to start strapping it around my neck. Anyway, that's why there's a picture of another boxer here instead of Lucy's picture.
It has been raining in Pittsburgh for days. Our backyard looks more like a cow pasture than a yard from all of the mud. I wish it would stop, and I'm sure Lucy shares that sentiment.
Lucy has been going to the back door, ringing the doggie bells and waiting patiently to go outside for days now. It wasn't until this morning that I caught on to what my little pup was up to in the yard.
She rang the bells this morning, and I let her out. She ran across the deck as fast as her little legs would carry her, grabbed a very dirty meat bone and came back to the door. I let her in, she ran across the kitchen and into the foyer where I heard her plop the bone down on the floor before she came running right back to the door to ring the bell. I let her back out and she grabbed another toy, and waited to be let in. We did this 7 or 8 times this morning before I figured out that Lucy was rescuing her favorite toys from the rain! I'm still smiling in amazement 6 hours later! I will never underestimate the intelligence of this little boxer!
