First is the beautiful, obstinate, always-under-foot, so sweet & easy going, Lucy.
And here is the handsome, sensitive, attached-to-my-side, careful & loving, Blackie (the Brown Dog).
At some point there will be an explanation for why a brown dog is named Blackie. It's not for the obvious irony of it. Though I do appreciate irony in any form, I wouldn't name my dog for that reason.
