Lucy’s Thankful Thursday

Lucy: Looks like I get to lead off Thankful Thursday again this week. So let’s start by thanking Brian for hosting Thankful Thursday.

First, I’m thankful for my position as Zen Assistant when Mom grooms. To maintain the zen mode and help transfer it to the dog on the table, I allow the shaved hair to fall on me as I sit under Groomer Mom’s legs.

Sometimes I back out and shake it off, then go back in for a fresh “hairfall.”

I’m also thankful for one of our Christmas presents that we all share. It’s a giant bag of freeze-dried beef liver.

You can see that my sister Xena had her turn and grabbed a mouthful out to eat off of the floor. When it was my turn, I just stuck my head in and started eating. Now Mom doles them out one piece at a time to us all, but I still think about my first encounter with them. *sigh*

Mom Amy: I’m especially thankful this week for one of my two closest friends, Jen. You may think she’s my sister because the pups call her Auntie Jen. We couldn’t be closer if we really were sisters. She brought Ella and spent the weekend with us during Lucy’s birthday (and Jeff’s), and brought our Christmas presents and Jeff’s birthday present. She always knows what to get us that we’ll love. And in case you’re wondering, Ella coming to visit was the best present Lucy could have gotten. I took this selfie to send her to let her know I am thankful for the new scarf she gave me. See all the puppy dogs on it?

I took this picture at the temp job I’ve been working since the beginning of November. It’s as office manager at a First Lutheran Church. This is my line of work, what I’ve been doing most of my life. I’m so thankful this position came my way. They will be hiring someone, so fingers crossed I get the job.

    Chaplin: “Can we audition to be your helpers?”
    Lulu: “You two weirdos just want to eat the fur.”
    Charlee: “Well duh. What else would we do with it?”
    Java Bean: “Speaking of jobs, we dogs send lots of tail wags for Mom Amy to get that job she is hoping for!”
    Chaplin: “And we cats send lots of purrs!”

    1. Lucy: Well, it isn’t quite that simple, Charlee… but from what I’ve seen with you and your Dada, you might qualify for the job. I’ll ask Mom to let everyone know when their tail wags have been answered!


  2. Lucy and Xena you are both just too cute for words and sharing treats well done sisters.
    Friends like Jen are one of a kind…and she has good fashion sense nice scarf!!
    I’m trying to let my hair grow about the length of yours. TRYING being the key word. I have just enough curly gray furs that are all wild especially on the right side.
    Hugs cecilia

  5. if we let Beau stick his head in the bag, assuming it would fit in that bag, it would be gone before I made him retract the head.. Love the scarf and the selfie. so good to see you and prayers they will offer you the position. My brothers daughter in Augusta Ga does the same job at a church and has for years. you have lots of experience, and i know they will like you
