lucy the chihuahua with her mom linda, a breast cancer survivor

hello famous chihuahua®,

my name is linda and this is my 4 year old chihuahua lucy. my husband bought her for me for my birthday four years ago from a very reputable chihuahua breeder. she was a surprise to me because my husband didn’t want to have an inside house dog, but i saw how much my daughter and daughter-in-law enjoyed their little house dogs so after months of begging from all of us girls, he finally gave in.

my sweet little lucy was brought in to me in a gift wrapped box with a large red bow on it. when my husband handed me the box, i heard a little whimper and tore the top off only to be greeted by the most precious little chocolate colored chihuahua puppy.

lucy is a very happy and healthy chihuahua that has brought so much hope and joy into my life. recently i went through breast cancer treatment and had to have a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation. lucy was a huge comfort to me throughout it all. she laid by my side after my surgery and during the down times. she is wearing pink with me in the picture above for breast cancer awareness. today, i am cancer free.

lucy the chihuahua eyes up her christmas gift

i was able to house break lucy at the age of 4 months and she has a basket full of toys that loves to play with. she will squeak her favorite toy to get our attention and she does several funny things, but i think my favorite habit of hers is when she figures out what gift is for her under the christmas tree. she will eye it up daily until she is allowed to open it on christmas day.

my children are grown and married and i do have grandchildren that i adore as well, but this little 4 legged darling is truly my baby. my husband now loves her so much and lucy adores him just the same.

a proud chihuahua mama from lucedale, mississippi
