A gregarious twelve-year old yellow Labrador, named Lucy sniffed every nook and cranny of my exam room, curious about everything and everyone! She came in for a stiff and painful left hip and chronic intermittent diarrhea. Her human described a lifetime of a love for life and it’s subsequent hard knocks. Diving off the dock into a lake, jumping and twisting for a tossed ball or Frisbee. A Labrador’s life lived to the fullest.
