Thursday – Anything Possible – Quiet Day of Recovery

Lucy Bailey Twiggy

“You heard Pops you two. No running around. Twiggy needs her rest after surgery.”

“Yes, Mama Bailey. We heard. A little jog couldn’t hurt.”

“Come on Twig. Chase me.”

“You sure it will be okay?”

“What can it hurt. All dogs run.”

“Well okay. You go and I’ll run after you

“There you go, Twiggy. You look great.”

“I don’t think I can catch you two.”

“Go catch Bailey. Then come back after me.”

“Okay, Lucy. Look out, Bailey here I come.”

“Gotcha, Bailey.”

“You sure did kid. Now go get Lucy, but walk.”

“Gonna get cha, gonna get cha. Gonna, gonna, gonna.”

“Bring it on, little stuff. I can outrun a freightΒ train, let alone a little caboose like you.

“Okay ladies. Time to come inside.”

“Lucy?”

“Yes, Boss?”

“You and Twiggy take it easy out there?”

“You have no need to worry, Boss. We were like lambs. Right Twiggy?”

“Yes, Dad. Just like grazing sheep.”

  1. They are a rambunctious group. Great actions shots, but I love the last photo. You’re late! I emailed Gwen…yes, I’m a worry wart. πŸ™‚ Have a great day, John!

    1. Gwen told me you were concerned. That was so heartwarming, Jill. What happened was I set the post to run but messed up the time. Let’s make a deal. If anything happens to me I’ll send you a note. (or someone will) You shouldn’t have to worry. ❀

    1. Thaks Dan. It was one of those get it quick moments. They were actually laying there. That was not staged. We have another shot where Twiggy is laying across Lucy’s paws with her stomach showing. We missed the shot of Lucy laying her head on Twiggy’s stomach. It would have been priceless.
