Rockin Rescue Owners: Jerie and Jon

Gorgeous Pup: Lucy, a 9 year old “Louisiana Roadside”- we adopted her from our local animal shelter in Caddo Parish (we support our local shelter in addition to Pet Savers)

The Feeling Was Mutual: When I went to the Puppy Room at the animal shelter Lucy crawled over the shredded paper in her cage and put her paw up. Lucy picked me and I picked her right back.

Einsteinian: Lucy is the smartest dog on Earth. We house-trained her in two weeks by sleeping on an aero bed next to her new kennel and if she made one tiny sound, I scooped her up and plopped her down in the backyard. Later, we taught her to sit, stay, and heel, and if I even begin to say the word ‘squirrel’ Lucy is like a bottle rocket to the window. She is very good at guarding our house and since she’s such a good girl she gets to sleep between Jon and I in our bed.

BFF’s: Since our twin sons went off to college Lucy has become my best friend. Sometimes I wish she could talk!  Lucy loves apples, carrots and celery and she now has the great life she deserves. 

Where: Louisiana

  1. SUCH a beautiful girl!

    Your list is getting shorter, Shauna! =)

  2. @Cristol- She’s beautiful, isn’t she? I am SO PUMPED that so many ROAR Squad subissions have come through! So energized that the list is getting shorter 🙂

    What a gorgeous face she has! That top photo is just adorable. She looks so happy and confident. I am glad Shiva isn’t the only dog who likes her vegetables. I was beginning to think there was something wrong with her.

  4. @Kristine- Mickey used to have no interest in vegetables until Kayloo aka The Garbage Can came along. Now he eats ’em too, just so Kayloo isn’t the only one getting them 🙂 I love that top picture too!

  5. @Kari- Makes me smile whenever I look at it 🙂
