If you are not a totally gaga dog lover, please read no further. I’d like to keep you thinking of me as a rational human being. When I was expecting my first child I dreamed that I gave birth to a dachshund. I was delighted with my human baby girl but that dachshund was awfully cute. After many years, when the children had flown our nest, my husband surprised me with a miniature dachshund puppy. She’s so adorable–I said she was the love of my life but my son said, “What about your husband?” Well, he’s nice, too but it’s along time since he wiggled all over with joy just at the sight of me. Once again, my art and life have intersected, because Lucy has inspired a whole new series–A Lucy for Every Season. I’ll be sending out Lucy greetings appropriate to the season and occasion. Here’s the latest–Happy Mother’s Day!
