Lucy snapshots from October 2010 to January 2012. Lucy in the very first snapshots is approx 5 months old.
Lucy was adopted from a rescue shelter located in Manhattan and the rescue shelter named her Lucy. The City caught her roaming the streets of Manhattan.
I first saw Lucy while she was being walked by a volunteer of the rescue shelter in the ‘Little Italy’ section of Manhattan. As I walked up Mott Street I first noticed the volunteer dog handler wearing a light blue t-shirt walking a small black lab wearing a vest that stated “Adopt ME”. Both Lucy and this person was a block over from of me. I then spotted them on 2 consecutive intersections as we walked in the same direction but on a different block. The dog was very good with children and even sat and gave paw in a gentle manner to a child. After walking a few blocks north and seeing the dog on the adjoining street; I turned around and walked south only to see the volunteer and the dog do the same. I now decided to walk over the block to meet and pet the dog. The handler stated the dog’s name was Lucy. The volunteer was very nice and was from France originally. Lucy was very good.
A day later we went back to the rescue shelter and adopted Lucy. Lucy was about 5 months old.
Lucy can do many tricks for children now- she can: turnaround, roll-over, back-up, smell, sit, sit-up, find a ball, lay-on-back, give-paw, and say-thank-you (which is take a bow on front legs).
