Lacy came into the program from TLAC. Found as a stray, unfortunately, no family came looking for her. Lacy was 12 years old, and was very friendly and dignified. She liked all people, and was amazingly spry for her years. Even with some health and vision problems, she blended well with the others in her foster home. Three other dogs and a somewhat grumpy cat seemed to accept her on her own merit. She had Mom and, especially Dad, by the heart in no time at all.
Lacy did appear to have been an outside girl and had been limited in her experiences with people. “Treat” became something she understood and enjoyed very quickly. She certainly came around to being petted and enjoying the company of people that loved her. She gave back in a big way.
Lacy was a tremendous ambassador for ASR. At one of the gift wrap functions, she was the absolute star of the show for a group of young girls that just kept coming back over and over to see and pet her. As we left that evening, they were even telling her goodbye and “Merry Christmas”. Man, she was happy. One imagines that might have been her best day ever. Only a few days after that very happy day, she crossed over the bridge. As though she was moving on again, like she had maybe done all of her life, she also did this with grace and dignity on her own terms.
Lacy, thank you for everything. Our time was too short. Godspeed, sweet baby.
Your Foster Family,
Mom and Dad, Pop, Mz. B, Doo, and Pig.
