Lucky is our "second" foster dog from GRRIN . She is a VERY
Our "Second" Foster Dog
Let me tell you more about Lucky.
Lucky's previous owner was a bar hound who had to be locked up to
detox. He called his ex-wife to ask her to take Lucky (which was
a violation of his restraining order), but she had allergies and
decided to call GRRIN. That's where Adam, Christi, and Lexi came
After a few mishaps during her first few days at our house, Lucky
has settled in wonderfully. We had considered keeping her, but
after chewing up Adam's good glove, we decided that she needed da
Lucky loves to fight with Lexi and can often be seen chasing Lexi
around the back yard. Let's just say that Lucky literally gives
Lexi "a run for her money" (or dog toys. whichever the case may
be). Its often difficult to predict who will get to balls first
when playing fetch. The two dogs love to carry toys around
together in their mouths, which is ADORABLE!!! (kinda makes you
wonder what Lexi would look like if she had a siamese twin)
We have discovered that Lucky enjoys climbing. First of all
it was couches. You could tell that she knew that she wasn't
supposed to be up there, but she would curl up in the corner and hope
that no one would notice. The second climbing victory for this
fiesty little female was our table on our deck. For the past
couple days she has climbed up on top of this table to play "Queen of
the deck". She's thinks she's pretty tough stuff, but Lexi just
thinks she's crazy. (But its a good photo opp.)
Lucky looks very similar to Lexi. She's a little bit more red
in coloring and about 20 lbs lighter, but many people have looked in
awe and said "How do you tell them apart?!" And
may I say now that having a "Lucky" and a "Lexi" in the house is extremely confusing. Many times I hear Luxci coming out of my mouth.
Our most challenging part of fostering Lucky,
besides the name thing, has been kennel training her. For the
first few days we had to bride, shove, or drag her into the
kennel, but things are getting better. Now, for the most
part, she'll go into her kennel when instructed, especially if
she knows that it is time to go to bed.
bedtime . . . Lucky is the first dog that we have ever
seen sleep on her back with her
legs in the air or curled up against the side of her kennel.
