Lucy Louise

Hello all it’s me Lucy Louise joining rescue! I am not going to lie, I had a different name when I joined. My name was Miss Piggy.

I had been teetering on the edge about changing my name for a while, but this morning was the final straw. I got up super early to head to the pet store to get a new harness and leash. I patiently waited for my turn and when I got to the counter the lady said “Lord sister you need a Double XL, you are a big one.” I didn’t even tell her my name when she said, “You’re fat as a pig!” My first thought was to tell her she was no tiny thing herself, then I thought I would be the bigger person and just grab a harness and go.  But it did hurt my feelings.  

It’s not my fault that I am from the South where butter is a staple and gravy covers all comfort food! After all, it took me 3 years to grow this beautiful. There were a lot of tears when my mom said her goodbyes, but sometimes things change and what was going to be forever changed too. 

I am scared with this new change of residence, and I have been shaking in my bed. But I will get this all figured out. Everyone has been so nice and comforting and even wrapped a bath robe around me so I would not be so scared. Next week I am going to go sit with Dr. Larsen. She has a way of helping scared ladies feel like a queen.  And you know what?  Dr. Larsen would never use the word “fat” to describe me. She would just say “my goodness you sure are a big boned beauty!”

That describes me, Lucy Louise, age 3, a big-boned beauty!
