Camera Critters #183

Almost a year ago, I drove over the mountains with my landlord to get her son’s dog who had been left alone for far too long.

Lacey was added to our family and she remained a good friend to me.  We walk and had fun, but I could tell something was missing in Lacey’s life. 

Towards the end of May, we found a young woman who lived on a ranch…the perfect place for Lacey.  So I asked Lacey if she wanted to go with the young woman, and Lacey hopped into her truck and drove off with her.

A few weeks ago, I heard from the woman I gave her to.  She told me she was selling a horse and a couple came to look at the horse.  They also brought their young daughter.  Well, the little girl fell in love with Lacey, and Lacey with the girl.  In the end, the couple left with another horse and a new dog for their daughter.

I would have liked to have been able to say goodbye to Lacey, as she is now enjoying life in Washington state.  But knowing she is with a good family makes me feel good, even if I choke up a little as I type this.  8v)

She's definitely a pretty girl, and she's lucky you were there for her when she needed you.

Well it looks like Lacey would be happy with her new family...she looks so sweet

Oh she is definitely beautiful, and her expression is so loving. Somehow i pity her because they normally don't want to leave their masters. She also reminds me of our previous dog, who also crossed her forelegs like that. And her face resembles Lacey too. She is now in Dog Heaven.
