It's Been A Long Day For Lucy & Her "Hooman"

I can't seem to get rid of the feeling of being so tired that it's a huge effort just to climb the stairs. By the time I get home each evening, it's all I can do to rid up the house, play with Lucy and make something to eat for dinner. And for the last two weeks, we've been shuffling vehicles around in the morning before work, and at night after work, so that's been adding a couple of hours on to the beginning and the end of the day. This morning was no exception.

I loaded Lucy into her Daddy's truck and we drove 45 minutes to pick up the big box truck. Lucy started out in the back seat. By the time we had been in the truck for 10 minutes, she was half in the front, and half in the back (in the direct stream of the heat, mind you), and by the time we arrived at the mechanics garage, I had a sweet little boxer baby in my lap, which I didn't mind one bit except for the fact that Lucy's not exactly light. I'm pretty sure she just wanted to be close to her humans.

As cold as it was here today, I was determined that I was not going to deprive Lucy of her 4 walk and explore adventures that we normally take while she's on the job with me. And I figured that as long as I was freezing my tush off, I might as well get some good pictures of Lucy. She didn't disappoint me, she's a very entertaining little boxer!
This is Lucy's "Scrunch Face"! I can't help but just wanna squeeze her when she makes this face and all of her little wrinkles appear!
Lucy's very easily entertained, and these tree branches kept her occupied for a good 15 minutes (did I mention that I was freezing my tush off?)
"Hey, Ma! I's tinkin dat I's want da branch dats on da top. Can you's helps me? Please??? I dont's tink I can reach its."
... Such fierce determination for such a little pup!

I wish I could say that it's time to go home now, but I've still got 2 hours of having the store open, and a 20 minute drive home. Mountain Dew and Coffee have lost their energizing effects on me at this point... "What's am I gonna do, Lucy? Can I have just a tad of your energy?"


  1. awww Lucy, you are to cute for words... Were you eating the branches or itching yourself due to your harness. Cooper itches when he has a coat on.

  2. What a beautiful dog Lucy is!

    Guess what? My mom person & I have created a blog,, and we'd love it if you would come over and check it out.

    It's a great place for pet bloggers to find each other, and get an opportunity to be a featured blog!

    Hope your Mom gets some rest soon...we're writing this at 2:30 am!

  5. Hi Lucy, I'm sorry your mom was freezing her tush off. It's raining here. Mom seems to like her raincoat with hood. I hate mine, but I wear it because I hate the rain more. My hood doesn't work though. Luckily, we are in and out of it fast. We've been playing fetch in the house with the newly mended Mr. Weenie. Not the same a good long walk outside, even in the snow.

    Your pal,

  6. It looks like she was having a blast in the snow :) That's a great harness...I bet it keeps her chest warm!

  7. Hi there!

    You are sooo cute!
    We will follow you adventures!
