Home again

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.

Warm dog. Good dog

Warm dog. Good dog

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.

  1. I’m sure it must be a great comfort to your mother to have Lucy nearby. Also, to know that she has been well cared for. I sometimes worry about what will happen to Sage if something should happen to me. It’s good to know that there is someone who will care for our pets when we’re unable.

  2. Way back when I was in grad school I had a dog that was a constant companion. I told my parents that if I died before she did that they should show her my body so she would know why I didn’t come back for her.
