Puppy School All-Star!

Miss Lucy is (in the humble opinion of her mother) an absolute genius. Or will be one day...

She is definitely the smartest in her puppy class, and is showing some definite signs that she will (eventually, probably) be the greatest dog ever.

Here are just a few of the tricks we know so far:

(we can definitely retrieve, but our accuracy on bringing the ball back to the thrower is hovering around 25%)

Hands down, sitting is our best trick. And she will do it any time, mostly if she thinks she'll get praise and/or a treat.

So, a caveat on "Stay" - she doesn't like to think anyone is leaving the house/room/her presence, so you can only get so far away before she gives up. BUT, I am up to being able to be across the room. Which, with this (slightly neurotic) pup is pretty incredible.
She will lay down pretty well, but won't generally stay there long... Too many places to go/things to do.
The trick we are NOT good at...
Oh well, we can't all be perfect... But this gal is pretty darn close!!!

Avenue Q!

Last night Pia and I (along with a few other friends) went and saw "Avenue Q" downtown. Seriously one of the funniest musicals I have EVER seen (and I've seen a lot)! With songs like "Everybody's a little bit racist," "Schadenfraude," and "The internet is for Porn" what's not to love? Totally ridiculous, incredibly inappropriate, and absolutely effing hysterical!

I absolutely recommend you go see it! :)

Lucy Lou

I don't want to be one of those people who only blog about their dog. But I have nothing else, and Lucy takes up 90% of my time, and Pia is yelling at me to post something. So, on our 2 week anniversary, here are some things I've learned about my pup:
1) She LOVES me. And pretty much everyone else she's ever met. But she is my shadow at all times when I'm home. Never more than 2 feet from me. :P
2) She is killer with a tennis ball - and this makes me soooo happy, cuz all I wanted was a dog who would play fetch! (Although she won't bring the ball back until she has spent a good 3 minutes tearing around the yard at top speed with it first...)
3) She is pretty smart (I think)... she can "sit" like no one's business, and is slowly learning other tricks as well (week 2 of puppy school is on Monday).
4) She likes to have a wide variety of toys/chewies that she can choose between - but will always pick Joan over any other.
5) She is pretty much the cutest, sweetest puppy in the whole world! :)

Here is my girl playing ball in the weeds in our backyard...
