Little sniff

Lucy and I have been adjusting to our new home in Nashville, and I took the time one afternoon to snap some photos of her, just hanging out.

It’s funny how a year and a half can change so much. When I took her home from the pound in July 2008, she wanted nothing to do with nature when it was raining. She would refuse to walk out the door, or, if we made it down the stairs, she would look up at me with sad eyes, turn around, then drag me back up to our apartment.

(She doesn’t like having her photo made. True story.)

It snowed this past weekend, and Lucy surprised us all by playing and WANTING to go out in the cold! No, seriously. I wasn’t sure how she would take the precipitation until we walked out the door. She took a few steps, slid, steadied herself, then kept walking like a trooper. When we made it to the little grassy area at our condo, she immediately started digging in the snow, sticking her nose to the ground the entire time, then tossing her nose (and all the snow on top of it) into the air, spinning in a circle.

The only thing I wish is that I had taken some photos of her out in the elements and that we had a backyard so we could have played more while the snow lasted.

    SoMi's Nilsa - I think SoMi and Lucy would get along brilliantly. Both rescue dogs. Both hate having their photos taken (must stem from photos that the rescue organizations took to help get them adopted!). Both hate the rain (SoMi used to jump over puddles, that's how much she hated it). And both LOVE the snow. Your Lucy is really so very adorable.ReplyCancel

    (That makes me feel so special.)

    I'll let you know whenever we get the element shots. It'll be fun! And
    you'd better take some of your pups when y'all get to Boston!ReplyCancel

    Erin - Your comment totally brings a smile to my face because I honestly
    think Lucy and SoMi would be fast friends. They have TOO much in
    common not to! And your SoMi is pretty adorable, too!ReplyCancel
