A week and a half ago a puppy followed us home from dropping the boys off at school. She was skinny and scared. And she followed us the five blocks home. I fell in love with her right off the bat.
We took her to the vet to see if she was chipped. Knowing she was a Great Dane puppy, I figured someone would be missing her and hoped that they would have chipped her. But there was no chip. She checked out fine, other than hungry, and I brought home a 73lb 7month old puppy. We began calling her Lucy and introduced her to her temporary family.
We checked every avenue we could think of to see if we could find her family. Lucy is house trained and kennel trained. She doesn't jump or chew on things. And her personality is sparkling. She's amazing with the boys. And if it were three years or so from now, she would be ours. It was a tough decision to make, and if we couldn't find the right home for her, we would've kept her.
We gave her to her forever family yesterday. Our close friends, The Davenports, picked her up. We couldn't find her family, and they have experience with Great Danes. They were in love with her instantly, and I can see her anytime I want. Because, honestly, I fell in love with her. Really, really did.
Here are a few pictures of her. She slept quite a bit. When she wasn't sleeping, she was running with Snickers. The two had so much fun together!
This is how she liked to sleep most often.
Simon was pretty sure she was his and that her stuff was also his. But this shows how amazing she is!
This gives you an idea of how big she is. She is truly a beautiful puppy, and I'm missing her.
