Outstandig image, Dianna. Congrats on EP! #5428351

Dianna Murphy February 01, 2008

Thanks Anita and Janet for taking the time to comment. I so appreciate it!!!!! Lucy is VERY patient about having her picture taken but she tends to look very bored so I actually have to spend quite a bit of time getting her to look alert. Sometimes I think she purposely looks away from me. She loves peanut butter though so sometimes a bring a small jar and show it to her and that works quite well!!! #5428486
