We Love Lucy

We got a new puppy today!! Well... my son did, it is supposed to be his dog but we all love her. Her name is Lucy. She is an 8 week old Golden Retriever. She is so sweet...she just loves to be held. I forgot how much a puppy goes potty. Many, many times. It is almost 11:30 PM, she is up and still going potty. The breeder we got her from suggested that we get her a crate/kennel. She said her dogs love sleeping in their crates. We have never had one for any of our other dogs so we were not so sure about it. My husband decided we could try it and went and bought one. We put a comforter in it and a rag with her mom's scent on it and she went right in it and fell asleep. That was earlier...now that she's rested it's play time. So much for sleep tonight, but that's Ok because she is so darn cute.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! she is sooooooo adorable, and she has a pink ball too!!! I just adore puppies!!! She'll love her crate and "normally" they won't potty in there either. We have always crate trained our dogs and they would actually go in to bed on their own after a while. She's cute cute cute!

I agree she is adorable, she will be a great companion for your son I'm sure and a lifelong friend too.
Cherish her forever.

Awe, Lucy is so cute! Dogs are a wonderful addition to the family. Even if she belongs to your son ~ I'm sure all of you will enjoy having her around for company.

Sue~ Lucy is adorable! My brother & his family have a Golden, named Lucy...great choice:-) Crate training is a terrific idea. I hesitated to do it, when we got Gretel, but she really does love her bed. It was a good thing I got her used to it because she needed to be kept quiet and somewhat confined after her accident. Puppy kisses from Gretel to Lucy!

What a little sweetie Sue,
We used a crate with our pups and it was great. Makes them feel secure I guess. She is going to bring your family so much joy!!!

Best wishes,
Mary

geesh - I wish I had a puppy again! they're so darned cuddly and lovable.

I don't think my Dusty would put up with an interloper in his domain however.

Lucy is just totally a charmer.

What a sweet little girl. We have an 11 year old Chocolate Lab. She is the sweetest dog ever. She went blind at 3, but still does real well for herself. We just don't move furniture around on her.
I would love a new puppy...

Aww, who doesn't love a puppy! I just wish that they would stay cute puppy size for ever. A co-worker of mine just told me what she did to potty train her dog. She said she tied a string with a bell at the end and tied it to the door and she was trained with in a few days to go outside.

Best wishes
