Misc stories about their past etc: Lucy is my best friend and when not at Downtown Doggy comes with me to everything. When not driving around town with her head hanging out the window, Lucy can be found smelling everything at Gray's Lake, getting a pup cup from Starbucks, or napping. Her nemesis are fireworks, thunder, and bullies. Her favorite thing about Downtown Doggy is the sprinkler and hose so the sooner those come out the better.
