Sunday Painting (+ our new Dog!): The Dog by Francisco de Goya

Since we picked up our brand new shelter dog today I had to make today’s Sunday Painting one with a little canine flair.

The Dog
Francisco de Goya
Museo del Prado

 And not to be outdone by Goya, here is our “new” dog. Her full name is Happy-Go-Lucy, but we call her Lucy for short.

 We got her at the Washington Animal Rescue League.

She was absolutely perfect in the car. She seems to be completely toilet trained. She told us when she wanted to go out. She walked very well on the leash. Gets along with kids and other dogs. We may have found the perfect dog for us.

Ready to see her new home.

Checking everything out.

She seems to love the library.

With her part Corgi ears, Lucy is ready for Halloween.

    Congrats on your family's newest addition! I can say from the experience of having a purebred Corgi that your new furry friend is bound to keep you on your toes with her intelligence and her sunny disposition! She is absolutely adorable!

    Aww, what a cute puppy! My husband, who would love a dog, always gets excited when a blog I'm looking at has dog pictures on it. :)

    She looks to be a wonderful dog. She's lucky to have found you and vice versa. Love those ears! Rescue is the way to go.

    I love that particular painting.

    Lucy is precious. I love the motion shots of her checking everything out. My Maddie (a Yorkie) is the best company, hands down. I hope your new little family has a great first night together. Happy Halloween!

    Oh, she's a sweetheart! And looks completely at home. Congratulations to all!
    What's the first book you'll be reading to her? Or can she read already?

    Adorable. Here's hoping she never eats any of your books. ;-)

    Congratulations on the new family member Thomas. Happy-go-Lucy aka Lucy is very cute and looks in every way like a lovely dog. She has such a bright intelligent face and she certainly looks like she is smiling. She knows when she has found the right home. Our dog is also a rescue dog and we love him to bits as he is loyal and loving and smart. Will Lucy have her own blog?

    Lucy is adorable and I am sure has adjusted well to her new family. She is a very lucky puppy!

    What a darling – she is indeed lucky you found her! Living with animal friends increases the love in one's home, exponentially – you thought you had a lot around before, but just wait! So wonderful…

    Congratulations! She is absolutely scrumptious:)

    Congratulations! She is LOVELY and it looks like she is very much at home already. I love how excited you look before you went into the shelter – such anticipation on your face!

    A big welcome to Lucy! The library is her favorite place, eh? Sounds like a match made in heaven.

    I love the Goya painting and I love Lucy (boom, boom)! Such a pretty name – my baby cousin's name.


  17. Jana November 2, 2010 / 1:08 pm

    Congrats! What a cute dog. I can see why you couldn't resist her.


  18. Darlene November 2, 2010 / 8:56 pm

    Oh Thomas…she is so cute! What a lucky girl!


  19. savidgereads November 3, 2010 / 3:02 pm

    Oh Thomas she is utterly gorgeous… those ears!!!! I am quite, quite jealous!


  20. Inkslinger November 3, 2010 / 4:41 pm

    Congratulations!!!! Looks like a lovely addition to the family. I've been trying to persuade Mr. Inkslinger to add a dog to our family . . . perhaps I'll show him these pics for inspiration? :)

    The adjective that sprang to mind was gorgeous – just as Savidge Reads said. Love those ears and her coloring.

    – Christy
