"Although I assume it's more customary to thank you soon after an adoption takes place, we wanted to write and share our wonderful experiences with Lucy (formerly Lady), whom we adopted from TCSPCA in 2003, along with her son Max. Here is a photo of our happy girl, sitting under "her" tree. Lucy and Max are our first bully breeds, and we adore them. Their loyalty, humor, cuddle-bug-ness, and "attitudes" are unbeatable.  Remembering the joy she took in playing, chewing, chasing, and eating gives us lots of happy memories and I just wanted to thank you again for helping us adopt such a wonderful dog.

Thank you,

Elizabeth Abend & Michael Arcangeli"
