She is our four year old Australian Cattle Dog mix or a Heeler, as some may say. She is a member of the herding breed and is related to Australia’s famous wild dog, the Dingo. She loves training, learning tricks and always ready for a game of fetch. She’s a bossy, high energy, vocal girl preferring people over other dogs and I’m sure would have preferred to be a solo ‘child’ instead of sharing her space with our Harry, a dachshund, whose temperament is her extreme opposite.
I captured this iPhone image (and edited in Lightroom) of Lucy in a ‘Quiet Moment’ as I took my time to wake up one morning. Yes, she sleeps on the bed and obediently waits for permission to leave it.
This is the look I get as she waits. Each and every morning, as if saying “Ready for a new day, Mom?”
