Gratitude Friday: One Hot Aging Blond

We took Lucy to the vet this week for her annual check up.  She's now 11 and by now, most labs are showing their age.  We think Lucy looks fabulous, but it was really up to the vet to tell us if we were seeing her through rose colored glasses.  I am happy to say Lucy not only received a clean bill of health, but in the vets words "I've never seen a healthier, better looking blond in all my years as a vet".

I am so proud!  But more than anything, I am extremely grateful.  Lulu made the trek over here from California with me 6 years ago and she has flourished in the Mediterranean sun (and diet!). She is my shadow and joy and I hope for many more years to come.  

Grazie a te, LucyLu!

She is one beautiful lab! It looks like she holds her age better than my neighbors black labs.
