Lucy is our golden little puppy dog who was born December 25, 2011. She is totally golden, except for a white tip on her very long tail. Her dad is our little stump-tailed "hotdog" Frankie (who does not seem to recognize his 3-month daughter who is almost as big as him) and Vivian's golden color small dog Lancy. Lucy grew up with her mom and brothers (she is the only girl of the 6 puppies) down the road and I "received" her a couple of weeks ago as she was weaned. It is so great that Lucy can still run up and down the mountain and visit her mom and brother Tobi (short for Beethoven) who looks like a tiny Panda bear. It is also great when Vivian comes to the Posada Rustica with Lancy and Tobi and they can all hang out and play and eat together. Lucy is like a cat, in that she is ferocious outside and with other animals (constantly beating up Tobi and getting scolded by Lancy), but she also loves to cuddle up and be playful and "purr". Of course "uncle" Perro Perro is there to guard over all the dogs, and he is really the father-figure for Lucy (and a platonic friend of Lancy), and Frankie (the real dad) is more of an uncle. But, the familia is together (mom, dad, Lucy, Tobi) ... and a couple other brothers are with nearby neighbors. We are so so happy to see our dogs run around free and amongst familia and friends. And, they respond by being so so friendly and loving and loyal. We really are blessed with our dogs Perro Perro, Frankie, and our newest addition - Lucy in the Sky with Perlas. And also blessed to have Lancy and Tobi, etc. nearby. I assume that it no surprise how Hannah the goat-hugger received the new addition to the Finca Rio Perla community -- with lots and lots of hugs and a loving welcome for her new roommate.
So, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKXfqpg-Q-k and sing along with the Beatles replacing "Perlas" for "Diamonds".
And, remember, I Love Lucy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Love_Lucy We all love you Lucille Ball.
