Our Beloved Pets is a new weekly feature where we will be spotlighting our reader’s furry (or not so furry) friends.

This week. we’re delighted to introduce you to Lucy, a German Shepherd, Shar-Pei cross who lives in Australia with her owner, Sally.

1. Name: Lucy

2. Breed:German Shepherd x Shar-pei

3. Owner: Sally

4. Favorite activity: Playing soccer with her tennis ball and being a “reading dog” to children with reading disabilities

5. Favorite snack: Dried liver

6. Favorite place to nap: On her trampoline

7. A story about how they are important to your caregiving life: My elderly mother lives in the USA (I live in Australia). She recently had a stroke and can no longer verbally communicate, but I keep in touch by sending weekly updates and photos featuring Lucy’s latest antics! My sister reports that Mom enjoys the photos and I’m pleased that the joy that Lucy brings into my life can be shared with others.

Thank you Sally and Lucy for being a part of our extended family!
