Miss Lucy

So, I've been thinking about our dog lately.  Andrew took her to the vet June 21, who said she looked great.  She's still been going to daycare almost every week, and they think she is great.  She has been doing awesome in the class we are doing with her, much more focused and attentive to us.  Andrew took her down to visit the kids at the school where he student taught and she did great.  Which got me thinking...she is pretty great.  We've had her for over a year now and she has grown and changed so much!  Not that I haven't been thinking she is great the whole time, but sometimes you get caught up in the times she ate your shoes, or continuously dug up the strawberries, or barked at nothing, or slimed your clothes on the way out the door.  So, in honor of Miss Lucy's greatness, here is a little update all about her.

Tricks Lucy knows:
Sit, down, crawl, bow, spin, twirl, shake, other paw, hurry, bed, heel, stay close, credits, come, touch, quiet, go, walk, wait, stay, leave it, give it.

Funny things she's been doing lately:
Leaning her chest on my yoga ball.  I think she learned this from watching me lean on it to get baby weight off of my pelvis.
Groaning when Andrew plays the trumpet.
Getting REALLY excited when you ask her if she wants to "go on a walk."
Knows that when you say "credits" it's time for her last feeding, bathroom, and bed.  Even if she is sound asleep when you say credits.
Watching her run with Andrew.

New things that are pretty impressive:
She walks really well now, especially when we are not in busy crowded places.  We have started dropping her leash for short periods of time to try and get her used to walking with us off leash.
She knows the boundary for the electric fence really well, and never crosses it, even when she is playing with all of the neighbor dogs and they run freely back and forth across the line.
She's been coming when we call her!  Well, at least most of the time, when we are at home.  It's a big improvement!

And the obnoxious things she still does:
Barking at nothing
Digging in the yard
Play barking (which sounds super scary) at dogs we pass on leash.  Not all the time, but usually in the most crowded places.
Eating shoes.  But again, not all the time.  Just often enough to make you angry :)

And the photo montage with some of my favorite photos of Lucy!
