Dear Lucy,

Saturday was a turning point in your life.  In contrast to your typical fear of water (i.e. refusing to go outside when it rains and screaming like a small child when you have to be bathed), you actually acted like a dog today.  Congratulations.  Instead of avoiding the flood waters at all costs, your curiosity got the best of you and off you went into the lovely Mississippi.  Nevermind the stench of the filthy water.  Off you went, head first.  

Although I thought for a minute we might lose you, you pulled through as I saw your little head bob above water and your little paws begin to doggie paddle.  Yes indeed, this is a breakthrough.  We're very proud.

Way to go Lucy. I was hoping she'd show some 'dogedness'.
