Before Brea: Lady

We got Lady to keep Lucy company, although we realized later that Lucy probably couldn't care less.  At any rate, I wanted a German Shepherd, and some people in Teays Valley were offering one, "free, to a good home."  They had found her a week or two before and now wanted her gone, because, they said, she wasn't housebroken, wouldn't stay off the furniture, and kept knocking their two year old down.

Lady was a very smart dog.  She was housebroken within a week, and soon limited herself to sleeping on one chair, which was okay with me.  She proved herself to be very gentle with small children.

She was my favorite dog.  Lady was with us for sixteen years, and I still miss her.

Brea is still on vacation.
