Profile: Lucy is my first dog ever. She is Springer&Labrador mix. I bought her on a street from a very weird looking woman for $100 July 2nd, 2000. Lucy was 6 weeks old. She is the Love of my Life! Phoenix is my second dog. He is a Beagle. I found him on a street lost, disoriented, injured, without ID in June 2005. He was estimated to be around 1&1/2 years old. I am the Love of his Life! The show is called "Three is a family!"

On November 3rd I have lost my mind (once again!) and added one more dog to my happy family of two. She was about 10 weeks old, with full mouth of puppy teeth, no manners, no shots, and no training. It took my two dogs ( Lucy almost 10 and Phoenix 6) about 2 weeks to stop grawling at the newcomer, but they are a happy pack of three now. I am, as one can imagine, a one busy "mama", but I really love them all! Zoe is a Labrador/Golden Retriver mix, and she is smart and goofy in one. She had mastered "sit" in two hours, and was able to play off-leash on the fourth morning in our local dog park. Every time I call her, she happily rans to me. She fearlessly plays with any dogs (big and small) as long as they don't mind her trying to chop their heads off!. Today she is about 4 months old, she snores like a man, has one puppy tooth left, and plans on staying a lap dog forever! P.S. Correction: Zoe lost her last puppy tooth this morning playing in her first ever snow with her friends and family. *** Today is August 22, 2010 and it is Zoe's estimated 1st Birthday. Unfortunately, we had to give Zoe for adoption back in February. My two older dogs Lucy and Phoenix never got over her puppyhoodiness and playfullness, for they are very mellow at this point of their lives. When Zoe started growing larger, about 5 months of age, she playfully torn Phoenix's ear to blood, and my "fearless man of the house" was terrified and very unhappy. We found Zoe a good home. She resided a few blocks away from us with a new mama, grandmama, a 14 years old boy she sleeps with, and a 2 years old cocker spaniel Charlie - a partner in crimes. Last I heard, everyone was happy, including my dogs!View Profile
I found a Beagle running disoriented and scared in a middle of a busy avenue in Brooklyn, NY in June 2005. It took some time and effort of a couple of people to catch him into safety from a drive way and discover he had bleeding front paws and shreads of skin hanging down. He was skinny to ribbs and spine protrusion, and I took him to an emergency Vet office from the scene. Needless to say, he had neither collar, nor chip ID. He was estimated to be 1 & 1/2 years of age intact Beagle. It took us two weeks of bandages, antibiotics (oral and topical), soaking his meaty paws in antiseptic solution while singing, pettind, kissing, and assuring him everything is going to be allright! My first dog Lucy ( 5 y.o. at the time ) was not happy at first and guarded her numerouse toys for a couple of weeks, but the new commer behaved perfectly respectful to her rules and didn't touch her goodies, occasionally leaning his sad nose to her rear end, and eventually he had won her heart without a single fight! They have been inseparable since. I named him Phoenix, and he started his new and happy life in his forever home with me and Lucy. He has been always good with other dogs, but it took him a couple of years to start trusting other people. Can you blame him? Lucy tought him good manners, such as not stealing food from mama's plate; hunting squirrels every morning off leash in Prospect Park and come back from the woods when called, and you cannot pay him to leave his mama! Yes, on their "last pee-pee walk" at night they both go without leashes, and my boy follows me every step of my way! You probably guessed by now where he sleeps, aha? Under blanket at my feet. Even though he is an example of one trully mama's boy, and can get scared of a plastic bag hanging on a door nub, I love him dearly, and call him "My Fearless Man of the House"! Most importantly, before I had a Beagle, I had no idea how especially loving and affectionate they are! I trully think only one of my grandmothers loved me as much as Phoenix does! He is absolutely precious, happy boy! I thank God for both of my dogs every day!View Profile
On July 2, 2000 I have met The Love Of My Life. It was late afternoon in NYC, and she was the last puppy of her litter being on sale all day on a side walk of Upper West Side behind the Museum of Natural Histoty. Her body was stretched on a blanket belly up, her eyes closed. I scoopped her into my hands and said: " This is my Lucy. How much?" The sales lady with exhausted face and too much makeup replied: "$100! And I cropped the tail for you for free already" I demanded my then husband to pay the puppy-miller, which he wouldn't have done if he did not make a complete a.. of himself the night before. I never put my puppy back down on the blanket. She was 6 weeks of age... 10 years later, men came and gone, my Lucy is still The Best Thing that ever happened to me. I joke with my friends and call her "The Best Marriage I Ever Had". In sickness and in health, in good times of stability and hardship of unemployment, any season, place, and situation, my Lucy has been my best friend and my guardian angel. She loves all people without discrimination of age, color, or sexual orientation. She will let any baby do anything with her and just kiss baby's hands. She can walk throughout city holding her leash in her mouth and wagg her tailless butt to everyone. She brings a toy in her mouth to anyone who rings our door bell, and our mailman adores her! She understands so many words and can do so many things on command, it is almost scary! She thinks she is a person, and I am almost convinced she is my reincarnated mother. I would like to share with you my daily prayer: " Thank you Lord for there were two best dogs in a whole world and you gave them both to me! Amen."View Profile
