The story revolves around a family and their dog Avery. Avery was a Labrador mix breed and had been in the family since he was a puppy, about eight years. Avery escaped one day and ran off and was captured and taken to the local animal shelter.
So Christmas is really just right around the corner (only eight weeks or so). Its amazing how fast the years go by. During this time a lot of people decide to get a new puppy or kitten as a gift. If you think that's a good reason to give one you're wrong!
Update - Day 9 of the tear Lucy is getting around better every day. We have not given her any pain medication now in at least two days. Read some interesting information that said the pain (as long as it isn't severe) is actually "good" for your pet.
