Lucky


This is Lucky doing her favorite thing in the whole world, sleeping with the Boy.  Lucky absolutely adores the Boy and goes to bed with him every night.  She spends as much time as possible with him.  Lucky is a fawn pug, born to a breeder who raised show dogs.  However, Lucky was born partially deaf, so that meant she couldn't be a show dog.  The breeder was rather disappointed and just kept Lucky in a crate, where she got mange.  Lucky's Mom-to-be heard about Lucky from another breeder when she was looking for a pug, because one of the two she had had for a very long time had gone to the Bridge, and she knew she had to take her home as soon as she saw her.  Lucky was four and a half months old at this time and had seldom been out of her crate.  Lucky was overjoyed to be able to run around and play with the Boy.  She got her name because she was lucky to be adopted by this family and they were lucky to have found her.  She was soon cured of her mange.  Lucky does have some problems left over from her early treatment.  She can't run as fast as Roxy; she has trouble going up and down stairs and she can't jump up on the couch or bed.  None of this stops her from being one of the sweetest dogs ever.  She was a great comfort to Muffie, who was the remaining pug of the original two, and she adores everyone in her family, but dotes on the Boy the most.  Last fall, Lucky met Luxor through blogging and the two of them really hit it off.  If you haven't read about the amazing Road Trip for Love, you really ought to check it out.  It starts on Roxy and Lucky's blog at the end of October.

                                           Lucky is as sweet as she can be.
                                           She never gets into trouble, not she.
                                                   She sleeps with the Boy.
                                                   It's her favorite joy.
                                          Is Luxor second?  That could be.

I think it is great for Lucky and the Boy to have found each other. I bet she loves her boy as much as I love mine!
