The Matriarch

LUCY 1998-2012

The Matriarch

Lucy was the matriarch of our Brittany pack…she had four litters of puppies: first-eleven, second-ten, third-ten, fourth-eleven! So this sweet old gal has been the grand dame of the Ranch Kennel for quite some time now.  Keith and I laid her to rest this afternoon, up on the hill.   We remember not only our other beloved hunting dogs who rest there, but also those canine companions of friends, guides and families who chose to bury their hunting companions in a place they loved so well…

Keith and I thank our vet & his wife for helping us to take care of Lucy and for the special kindness shown in coming to the ranch this afternoon, making her way much kinder and gentler.

Good-bye Lucy Houghton….
