Hullo friends, today I gonna tell you bouts the day mah parents got me. It are called a ‘gotcha day’, because on that day they said, “Lucy, we gotcha!”
I usta live in a place called Ken-Tuck-ee. This were a bad place. I lived behind a Dairy Kween and I eated Blizzard ice creams all day. And someone was very mean to me. I were very little, so I doesn’t remember too much. I think he were a tall mean man with a furry face. (Sometimes I still ascared of the mens who look like that.) Someone pulled out mah whiskers, and I had scrapeys on mah back and I still has a bimp on mah head where there were a scar.
I were teeny tiny and very sick. I had many sicks in mah tummy, and I had the itchies so bad that there was places on me where there was no fur! I were what Mommy call ‘skinny minny’. You could see all my ribs!
But someone finded me! And they brings me to the Pitts-Burgh! And I go to a place called Dob-er-men Reskyoo. I not a Dob-er-men, but they did nots know what I was since I were so skinny! They thinks that I somethin called a ‘Feist’. They did not see my big bully head and my muscleys!
Then a family adopt me. My Mommy were very sad acause she had tried to adopt me, but these people gets me first. They names me ‘Trixie’, and they does not like me very much. They think I too wild and crazy for their baby. Well duh! I’m apposed to be the baby! So even though I livin in a house, I still has sick in mah tummy, and I still skinny minny. And then they send me back to the kennel with all the barky dogs. I were sad. Nobody wanted the Lucy.
But then, on a wonder-ful snowy day, mah Mommy and Daddy come to see me! I love the snowy days, and Mommy says this day were very speshul, because it the Dave Matthews birthday also. (I know the Dave Matthews very important to mah Mommy, and sometimes, I get to stay in the ho-tel with her when she goes to see him!) So I know this a good sign, because it a speshul day, and it snows.
But then I has to be on my verruh best behav-ur. I so not good at this part. I seen my Mommy and Daddy, and I knows they gonna be just the right family for me, so I get SO excited that I leap all about. I leaps on a chair, I leaps on a table, I leaps into a bucket with a mop. And I piddles all over because I so excited, but know I am bein bad by bein so excited.
I doesn’t know if they are gonna take me! I think they are. My Mommy are talkin to me very nice and sayin ‘good girl’ and ‘good Little Red’ (that were my name when I lived at the kennel). And she and Daddy lookin at me like they gonna take me to mah furever home, so I try to be payshent while they talk to the lady.
And then I see the lady give Mommy and Daddy mah bed and mah food bag and mah speshul leash! And then I knows! Then I knows I got a furever home!
This mah first ever picture! I sit on my Daddy’s lap like a good girl the whole ride to mah new house.
This mah first picture with mah new family!! I loves them so much already that I give out all the kisses I can! I knew this family were just for me. I knew that all my waitin in the Ken-tuck-ee and the Dairy Kween and the kennel and the wrong family house were worth it just so I could bes with my Mommy and Daddy!
Since I were named Little Red, and mah fur such a lovely shiny red, my Mommy says, “I gonna name you after mah fav-o-rite redhead!” And so she name me Lucy. And then mah Mommy lets me sit on her lap, and she pets me, and we watch a show about a funny lady named Lucy. She a redhead too, Mommy says. And she always in trouble, Mommy says, just like me. So I guess all along, mah name were Lucy, and I just didn’t knows it until my furever family telled me.
So now you know how I getted here to the Pitts-burgh! Soon I will tells you bout mah first day in mah new home. Here a hint: I made a poo where I shouldn’t have! Hahaha!
But this I will tells you tomorrow. Tonight I am the sleepy! Night night mah friends!
