When she isn’t reading books, our Lucy likes to look out the big windows that overlook the yard. She’s always on guard for squirrels and other intruders, and lets them know they are only welcome in the trees, not the grass.
That’s how I got my idea for the May 2013 episode of The Timbertoes, where a pack of squirrels play a daring game with Spot. Ron Zalme always does a great job with the artwork.
Lucy turned 12 on April Fools Day, but she still has puppy energy and curiosity. She’s my pal and we love her.
