Before we get down to business, Lucy made me promise that I would tell her story. Lucy’s mom has been bringing her to MoJo’s Backyard for the occasional fun sleepover stay since 2008. But this last time she was dropped off for boarding, it was not under such happy circumstances. On the 18th of last month, we received a phone call from Lucy’s brother (that is Lucy’s mom’s son) saying that Bettie (the mom) had fallen and was going to the hospital. Brian (the brother) was going to drop Lucy off for an overnight stay until Bettie recovered and was released. We were happy to have Lucy, of course, but sad to hear about Bettie. A couple of weeks later, we got even worse news: Bettie wasn’t going to be able to take care of Miss Lucy anymore because of her hip. Lucy’s brother told us he would have to board Lucy with us until he was able to find a good home. We gave him some advice and said we would do what we could.
Though we’ve been taking extra good care of Lucy (read: spoiling her rotten) and though she’s been having fun playing with our minis, we know that she’s missing the company that only a mom can give. Miss Lucy Lou is a sweet, happy 4-year chihuahua/corgi/dachshund mix who loves long walks, car rides, playing with dogs, cuddling in laps and being carried around. Please call or email me at 850.422.3063 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you may have a lead for a good home. In shameless self interest, MoJo’s will give the new parents a free 10-day package so that we can see Lucy every now and then and so that maybe she’ll stay in Tallahassee 🙂
(Also, to all you MoJo’s clients: any lead that you give us that ends in a foster going to a forever home gets YOU a free 10-day package! So be on the lookout for Oreo’s new parents. And though Lucy is not a MoJo’s foster, we just love her and want her to find great parents so she’s eligible for this reward too.)
