My mother came home from the hospital last Friday. We brought her dog Lucy back from our house, where she had stayed for the week or so that Mother was in the hospital. Lucy was happy again. She jumped up on the bed and settled down next to her. My mother was also happy to see Lulu. My mother will be sleeping mostly on her back now, so Lucy can’t keep her back warm. But maybe she can keep her leg warm, at least for a while.
I think we’ll inherit Lucy one day in the not too distant future. I prefer big dogs, but there’s really no one else to keep her, and she has been a good companion for my mother for a long time. When the time comes, Lucy will deserve her retirement up on the mountain.
