Well it seems that Lucy's original owners were the type that shouldn't have pets at all.  Apparently their way of getting rid of the dog is to open the front door and let it loose!  They say they got rid of her because she pooped and peed in the house.  Really?  REALLY???  I think we've had one accident - she holds herself all night and all day.  Is there something wrong with this picture?

My cousin said that they very rarely left her outside - could explain why her "business" was done indoors.  Now I feel as if we really did rescue this dog!
