Lucy's Favorite Thing & A Blog Hop

It's been a long time since Lucy & I have participated in the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop... We can't wait to get out there and meet everyone.

There isn't much that Lucy loves more than an empty water bottle. It would seem that she'll do anything to get her little paws on one of these noise makers!

And when she does get her paws on an empty water bottle, it's pure bliss for the little boxer! I've tried everything to distract Lucy's attention from these bottles because I'm afraid she's going to get hurt on them. I've bought strange little covers for the water bottles, but Lucy just rips them off the bottles.

So, of course there is a plan B... I watch Lucy like a hawk and when I start to think that there's too much destruction to the water bottle, I give her a treat and sneak off with the bottle. After 20 minutes or so, my guilt from taking something that Lucy loves away from her, goes away...

Lucy & I have a bedtime ritual. I'll grab a fresh soup bone from the fridge, and Lucy & I will head upstairs. (Recently, we've added the grabbing of "Lucy's Heater" and dragging it up to the bedroom.)

Lucy will hop up on the bed and wait for me to give her the bone. If I don't give her the bone right away, Lucy will sit and wait for a couple of minutes. If that doesn't work, Lucy will lay down and give me the "Mooooom, comes on" look.

"Comes on, Mom! It's nots like you're gonna chew on dat bone. I sat. Now I'ms laying down. Don'ts I deserves dat bone? I'ms not gonna get any cuter dan dis, so if dis ain't workins, I don't know what else to do..."

  2. It has been so long since I've visited, Lucy, but it is all my blog mom's fault, I swear! I love empty water bottles too and I even like to find them while I'm out on my walks and I flip 'em in the air and jump up and down with them in my mouth too! We have a lot in common, Lucy!

  3. You deserve that bone Lucy, sometimes the humans like to smile at how cute we are. Or take a flashy to show off. Water bottles have never looked so fun until now. Happy hopping. C&L

  4. Hi Y'all!

    Lucy, you have the sweetest face and warmest eyes! Why a fellow like me could fall in love!

  5. My parents younger beagle used to absolutely LOVE water bottles when he was a pup! We'd have to keep an eye on him because he'd try to rip it out of your hand if you weren't careful. Now he doesn't even pay any attention to them.

  6. Hi new friend, we are going to follow you around. Okay?, ok.

  7. Such a pretty girl! When I came to my forever home, my first best friend looked just like you! She liked to roll me around but it's not so easy now that I'm bigger. I like your blog! Happy Saturday Pet Blogger.
