Ok, I realize it's been way too long since I posted any pictures or a Lucy update. Some exciting things have happened!
1. Lucy turned a year old! I decorated the house and got her lots of toys for presents. I'm sure she had no idea what was going on but I had to celebrate the milestone. A year ago, having a corgi was only a dream that I was sure would never be realized. Little did I know the day she was born that the love of my life had come into the world.
2. Lucy started her Nosework 2 class. She did great with Nosework 1 which was just searching food. Now she's on to birch. She has a blast doing it, and definitely has a blast cleaning up all of the food off the floor that the other dogs in the class drop.
3. Lucy started the Obstacle Prep class for agility. We passed the handling class, which had no obstacles in it so we could just learn handling. Now we're learning the tunnel. It's been really hard working with her to sit and stay so I can walk up to the tunnel to release her but at our last class she did it and I couldn't have been more proud.
4. I got a tattoo with Lucy's name on it. It's the "I Love Lucy" logo with a paw print. I'll post a picture of it. She really is the love ot my life and I want her to be with me forever, even after she's gone.
Mainly I'm just trying to keep her busy and have fun with her. I know both agility and Nosework seem like a lot to do with her but I have learned that she is a dog that needs something to do or she goes crazy so they have given us something to do at home just a few minutes a day and in the almost 11 months we've been together the change in both of us has been so dramatic. She's gone from a crazy wild puppy all the time to a crazy wild one year old most of the time but she has calmed down so much since she has stuff to keep her mind busy. In the last 11 months, for me, I have learned how to let go and be silly. I no longer care if people see me in the park or on a walk doing crazy things and talking in a silly voice to entertain Lucy. She has also taught me the real importance of having another being to take care of. It hasn't always been easy but it's been more than worth it and I wouldn't change it for the world!
