Spotlight Thursday – Meet Lucy

10 Aug

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Lucy Howell McCormick

Age:  seven years

Location:  Mustang Island, Texas

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Well, I was a rescue from San Antonio and my mom met me at an adoption event. She was looking at another and my thought was she looks like the kind of person who will love me forever. I went up to her and the rest is history. (My secret was giving her a kiss)

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I met my dad and he said, “This is the most beautiful fur person on Earth.” I knew that I had arrived.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  One night there were a lot of people over for drinks and canapés . Someone suggested going onto the deck to see the moon. While they were gone my sister and I ate everything we could find. Although I enjoyed the food I did think there would be a consequence. Turns out a visit to the vet was the only punishment. We never got another chance to do it again.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I would say my mom. She is smaller than dad and I can fit nicely on her couch when she is on it too. Old dad takes too much room. Mom always welcomes me when it is time for a snuggle.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Because I’m a boxer  and look like a bulldog people think I’m a bulldog. I get a number of people doubting I’m a boxer especially since I’m white in color. Of course, the minute they come near I give them the boxer greeting which includes a big kiss.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

      Thank you so much, Easy. I find that party time without the rents is the most fun. They are always restricting my intake. Give me tons of people food and I…..Wait. I end up at the vet is what. Never mind. Thanks for the comment.

    You are a sweetheart! You did your peeps a favor by eating all that food. Think of the calories you saved them.

      Ha ha ha. They never looked at it that way. Thanks for the tip, Miss Kate. It’ll come in handy next time.

    Lucy has the privilege of an interview at Piglove today. It is a super place and certainly worth a visit and even a follow.

    Great interview. Maybe someone will accuse my dogs of being boxers one day.

      Ha ha ha. I think that might have to wait for one of your stories, Craig. 😀

    Ahhhh, so sweet. Mom may be the best for snuggles on the couch, but I suspect dad gives pretty nice snuggles as well. 😊

    • John W. Howell

      08/10/2017 at 2:27 pm

      Yes, Miss Gwen. He is a big ole lump of snuggles.

    Lucy has such a loving home. I think she probably has both Mom AND Dad wrapped 🙂

    You are a southern charmer, Lucy.

      I take that as a real compliment, Shoko and Kali. My boss loves Moosehead ale. Go figure.

    Lucy you are as cute as can be! So glad to meet you!

    I think you picked some good parents. I’m guessing you have John wrapped around that paw pretty well, too. Nice job cleaning up during the party.

    • John W. Howell

      08/10/2017 at 4:30 pm

      Yeah, the boss is a pushover. You can get away with just about anything. Never tried taking one of his margarita’s though.

    So wonderful to meet you, Lucy. You look just like our neighbor boxer Madison. Beautiful! P.S. I kissed my daddy when I first met him. Works every time!

      It does work, Miss Lee. Those guys are easy. Nice meeting you as well. ARF

      Nice meeting you. I think you met my feline sister. She has interviewed on Piglove three weeks ago. She is 15 as well.

    Splendid meeting you, adorable Lucy! Guess the invites to upright ‘pawties’ have stopped coming in the mail? That story was too funny!

    Aw, she’s adorable. I like her face markings, and it looks like she’s got a third eye on her inner ear. Probably used to keep an eye on the cat. “)

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
