#Catchup - Fall Harvest in Kentucky

 Let me take you back to the soybean fields of Kentucky.  So lush and green!

Bringing me endless hours of romping and riding!

Blue skies for miles!

Adorable fuzzy little bean pods.

All just picturesque!

Well as the temps started falling....

...the crops turned brown.

Then big vehicles showed up in every field near my home.

What is this?

Oh no more vehicles here!

They enter the field and ran right into the crops.

I'm furry concerned!

Now hes just making a mess!

Nothing left but corn cobs....

....and torn up fields.

I better get outta here before he gives me fur cut!

Oh so sad discard corn cobs litter the streets.

It just doesn't look the same anymore!

As we rounded the corner home, I was devastated to find that my soybean field had been harvested too!

This stob is all that left!

*SHEDS PUPPY TEARS*

To relieve some of my heart ache, I did find some fun with the mean ol equipment and played parkour on the tires.

Smooches,
Lucy

Signing Off

I have been 1 year old for an entire day now.  It feels good being a big girl!


I got to thinking last night about my blog.  Normally, I sign off with "Puppy Growls, Lucy" but now that I am a big girl I think I need something more mature as my sign off. It took me quite a while to come up with something that fit me just right, and I think I have it!

My 1st Birthday!

Exactly one year ago today a tiny red puppy was born.  It was me!  I had no idea what would be ahead of me in my first year of life and surely didn't expect to live in THREE different states but it has been a fun year fur sure!  Now I am officially no longer a puppy!  I am a big girl!

A close up of the spread momma prepared for me!

My first lick of frosting!  YUM Vanilla!!!

After pics momma removed the pesky candle so I could really get a taste!

Then I chowed down!

You know they say sugar makes kids hyper.  Ummm...Yea same for me!

One puppy....erm...doggie pillow fight!

Ready for lift off....

...take that couch!

Once I got my zoomies out of the way I played tug with my new toy!  The tail is so stretchy!

And great for shaking. 

The star is great for chewing!  Thank you momma!!!

Final zoomies! Weeeeeee!  Weeee! 

And last but not least the aftermath of a great birthday pawty!

A Post for Angel Mollie

11-04-2017 Fourteen years ago I convinced my mom we needed another dog.  So we went to go look at a little "useless" poodle that a breeder was retiring.  When the breeder put her in my arms she was literally scared stiff just from being handled.  I wasn't sure at the time if it was the right decision but I knew I could not leave her there.  It took time but we began to trust one another and had a close bond.  Watching her blossom from a scared retired breeder to happy loved pet was amazing.  This photo is the first photo I took her her the night we brought her home.

Her favorite things in life were finding sun puddles, dressing up, playing with toys, performing for an audience (if they clapped that made her day), and going exploring.


I didn't realize how strong our bond was till I lost my mom in 2014.  She gave me something to keep going on for when my life literally came crashing down around me.  Of all the photos I have (and I do have many) this is my favorite.  She is sitting outside enjoying the fall weather.  It was also her Gotcha day and her tag says "Mollie Jo's Gotcha Day / November 4, 2003.

When I saw her age catching up to her I was devastated.  Her quality of life had decreased and her kidney's were starting to fail.  When the medicine quit working and she refused to eat even her favorite treats I knew it was time.   I was there with her as she took her final breath and we were surrounded by family and friends.  I held her paw and said good bye.  She peacefully went to the Rainbow Bridge 2-22-17 to meet up with Bobo, Dolly and my mom (her grandma).  I know she is young again and there is a forever sun puddle for her to rest in.


This is the first November 4th we are not celebrating her gotcha day together.  It breaks my heart all over again just looking at her photos and remembering all the fun times.  Because she made such a big impact on my life I am going to continue to celebrate on this day, but in memory of my heart-dog, Mollie Jo!


Hug your puppies and kitties today because we are not promised tomorrow, let them know you love them!

Howl-O-Ween

So furiends I have racked my brain for months on what to be for Howl-O-Ween.  This is my first Howl-O-Ween so it had to be perfect.  So one night we were watching videos on YouTube and I was STRUCK with inspiration.  I saw something green and round.  I instantly knew what I wanted to be!  I pawed through the interwebs and found exactly what I was looking for on eBay.

I showed momma and she thought it was perfect too! So we paid and a few days later my costume arrived!


Are you ready....



Are you sure...



On the count of 3...



1...2...3...



I'm a little SOYBEAN!!!!!!!!!







I'll be out in the field eating treats if anyone needs me.
