Update on Lucy ...

Lucy seems to be a Fox terrier ... per vet ( as the vet chuckled )... as she is too tall and long faced to be a Russel. :)

Did the blood test ... She is in good health and heartworm " Negative! " ... Yeeeaaa!!!

We have antibiotics for her skin from the flea infestation and when we go back in two weeks for her booster shots ... if it has not improved we will do allergy testing.

I just put revolution on her.

She is showing her hunting instincts and has amazing night vision! She went after a cat last night ... this morning it was the birds she wanted. She is my kind of girl for sure! :) I will not allow her to hurt any varmints though.

I can hardly wait to see what surprises she has in store for me once she feels well from her spay. She does a little " Deer Dance " as I call it when the other dogs come near me ... or her. She also shows her teeth, what she has left ... when Abbylynn comes too close to me ... will have to work on that one!

She is only 3 - 5 pounds underweight. I think we can fix that! :) She has gained .8 of a pound in two days. She should weigh around 20 pounds or so to be at a healthy weight. She weighs 17.8 pounds today. Vet says she has a nice tuck-up. :) She is also nice and tall on her well rounded foot pads.

Now ... she just needs some hair to grow back on her tail! Lol! :)

I need to find a club or something. I don't think the age of 5 or so is too old? ... they say Terriers are long lived and a fairly healthy breed ... my childhood terrier lived to be 17 years old. :)
My 9 and 10 year old terriers are not showing any signs of slowing down, at all. The 10 yr old runs circles around EVERYBODY, literally. He follows when we're riding the horses and keeps up with them when all the other dogs have given up and are laying in the shade...so no 5 isn't even remotely old for a terrier!
