Our ball girl Lucy was very briefly distracted by a bird in the neighbours’ yard.
Much loved, valued, and treasured Fitzi.
Lucy sat-stayed long enough for me to capture a good image. I think this captures the fact that she can be a very serious and intense dog.
Four years ago today we formally adopted Fitzi.
You have brought us so much pleasure; we have loved having you and will love to continue having you. Thank you for becoming a part of our pack.
The dogs and I played outside. Lucy had her ball. Then we went inside; she did not have her ball.
Later, after dark, I let the dogs out for their last pee break. Before that I put them into a sit stay. Lucy looked up at the top of the clothes washer where we keep dog toys. She was looking for her ball. I said no it’s not up there it’s outside.
I said ‘Find your ball!’ Then I let her out, repeating ‘Find your ball!’ And less than two minutes later she brought it back.
What a smart girl.
Fitzi’s eyes are the most remarkable brown.
