Lucy showing her age

Swimming dog
"I has been awhile since I have visited your blog, Lucy is starting to look a little gray in the face, how old is she now?"
--- zimmy


Lucy is 12 years old, which is pretty old for a Chespeake Bay Retriever. She's slowed down quite a bit, but she's still the first one to ford a flooded creek and she keeps up easily on my two-mile morning walks.

Mark would tell you that a dog couldn't have a more perfect life than Lucy's. She has people around nearly 24-7, she can run as far as she wants in every direction without worrying about cars, and she knows she has a job to do. No wonder a few morning aches and pains aren't enough to keep her on the couch, even on a frigid winter day.
