Find Me and Lucy Dog On Facebook

I often write about my dog, Lucy, on Facebook.  We share many wonderful memories together and several of my pet paintings are based on our relationship.

That being said, I want to thank each and every one of my fans for joining my Facebook page, Good Girl Designs - The Fun Art of Susan Calvert.  Lucy and I truly enjoy interacting with you.  (Yes, I read all posts and replies to Lucy.  I let her know who "likes" what her mommy has written about her.)

If you have a Facebook account with an interest in pets and art, please join my Fan Page. To do so, click on the "Like" button in the box below or on the live link above.  Again, thank you for your support.

Where's the Beef?

As many of you know and if you don't know, you do now, I feed Lucy a raw diet consisting of raw meat and produce.  The other day, I forgot to take her meat out of the freezer to thaw.  So off to the store I went to "fetch" Lucy some meat.  I picked up a package of each, beef and chicken.

Upon my arrival home, Lucy greeted me with a wagging tail and her nose to my bag.  I pulled both containers of meat out of the bag and held them out to her asking "What would you like for dinner:  beef or chicken?"

Lucy sniffed both packages.  She gave the chicken package two licks and licked the package of beef forever.  I thanked her and immediately mixed a piece of beef with pureed snow peas and lettuce.  She gobbled it and that was the end of that!  Her tummy was full and now it was time to "play ball".
