Phew, what a week this has been for everyone! It was a wonderful week, though, and one that left Lucy exhausted!
The Saturday before Christmas we traveled to my parents’ house in Northern New Jersey where Lucy was spoiled with attention and gifts (and breakfast bacon!).
Christmas night we went to my Aunt’s house where Lucy spent dinner in her cage and was NOT happy about it…
From there we hit the road for South Jersey where Marty’s family lives and where more spoiling (and fattening) of Lucy continued. She finally got free range of the couch (not allowed on couches at my parents’), kids to play with, her very own stocking and she met her boyfriend, Diesel. Lucy did notplay hard to get and literally chased Diesel in circles for nearly five hours. I don’t think her technique worked.
In fact, Diesel spent at least 20 minutes sitting still as a statue by the front door afraid to move for fear that Lucy would pick up her pursuit of him.
Fortunately she finally gave into her exhaustion and collapsed right in the middle of the floor in the midst of our post-Christmas brunch.
She was an absolute trooper the whole week, though, despite the interruptions to her schedule and massive amounts of time spent in the car. Now we have a few more days at home with her before we return to the “real world” and work!
