Life with Dogs: Part 9 Lucy

Children and puppies both start out small.

Children grow fairly slowly, year by year, and only reach their full size in a couple of decades.

Lucy at 12 weeks

Puppies start out small too, but grow SO much faster.

Here is Rowan at almost 7 years and Lucy at 12 weeks. 

Puppies are pretty much full grown in a year. This transformation provided the inspiration for my book When Lucy Goes Out Walking.

Starting in January, the pup in the book grows month by month.

By March she is leggy and adolescent looking.

By July, she’s a mostly grown companion on a grassy hill.

and by rainy November she can carry groceries and trot along through puddles.

The weather turns cold again and this time Lucy leaves “big dog prints” in first December snows.

A year passes and here is Rowan at almost 8 years and Lucy at 12 months.

What a difference a year made for one small pup!
