Every kid needs a pet.
I knew I was lucky to grow up with dogs and wanted the same for my boys. Lucy made our family complete.
Even though I insisted we get a female dog so there’d be another b**** in our House of Boyz, Lucy had all the skills they admired.
She was good at messing around in boats,
and most important, she had game.
She never tired of the game of catch-of trying to catch the baseball, and of chasing it down when it got away.
Lucy was becoming an excellent new muse.
