Lucy was our foundation bitch. She was the one who really started it all.
Without her there would not have been any more.
Lucy and I learnt this showing game together. It was hit and miss for a while, I am sure, but I was bitten! (and smitten). Lucy was a fantastic pet, and a nice enough show bitch, but she never did anything fantastic in the ring. She was my first champion, the mother of my first few litters, and she was our family pet, living in the house from her very first day.
Her lasting legacy will be in her children. From 4 litters she gave us 7 Champions and 1 Grand Champion. She is the grand dam to 6 Champions and 1 Grand Champion, with more in the wings.
Lucy passed away in her sleep less than a month from her 13th birthday. We knew it was coming, however that did not make it any easier. RIP old girl, give Belle lots of hugs for us. Your son missed you so much, he went to join you two in heaven. Love you Lucy Lou.
