This week, Lucy the WonderSock went to visit her friends Annie and Kristin in Louisiana! She had so much fun touring around. Lucy got the chance to sun herself along the banks of the great Mississippi river and work on her tan. Then she met up with a Mardi Gras indian named Wild Tchoupitoulas of the Wild Magnolias, and he named Lucy "Wild Headband!" Later she got to hang out and catch a ride on one of the carriage mules in the French Quarters, and soak up some more rays by a fun fountain. (someone get that girl some sunscreen!) Finally, Lucy met up with some street musicians for a quick jam session before chatting with them about the negative effects of BSL and asking for their support! Now, Lucy is on her way to California to soak up some more sun (seriously. sunscreen.) and hang out with her west coast friends! Thank you Kristin and Annie for taking Lucy this week!

Lucy had a crazy fun filled week with one of her best buddies Frankie and his mommy, Teresa! (check out Frankie on facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/Frankieimalovernotafighter?ref=ts) First, Lucy was able to attend a Mardi Gras parade where she earned lots of beads, made new friends, and helped her friends Frankie and Hawk educate people about how much fun "tough" dog breeds can be! She even got her own Mardi Gras mask (pink of course!) to wear in the parade. Then, she took a trip to the beach to soak up some rays and check out the surf! She visited the haunted Pensacola lighthouse, and then headed to the Naval Air Station Museum to tour! The sign said "No Pets" but did that stop her? NO WAY!! As it turns out, nobody can resist the cuteness of Lucy the WonderSock, not even the military. She got to see many planes, space modules, a hot air balloon, and a rescue pod! She even got to sit in a Blue Angels cockpit! Lots of people asked about the little Sock Dog hanging out in the museum, and it was a great opportunity to educate people about Lucy's mission to end BSL! Thank you Teresa and Frankie for showing Lucy such a WONDERBULL time in Pensacola and helping advocate for misunderstood breeds! Next week, Lucy will be visiting beautiful Louisiana, so stay tuned!

Lucy had a FABULOUS time in Florida! First she spent a week with Tito & Scar (check them out on facebook - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tito-Scar-our-Pit-Bull-Heroes/204597792904380?ref=ts .) She made many new friends, people and pets! She got her picture taken with a sweet dog named Jade (which also happens to be the REAL Lucy's mom's nickname!) and went to an event with Wag Schwag! She even got her own Schwag. Next she spent a week with Pibbles to the Rescue and got to meet some AMAZING pittie ambassadogs. She went to an event with Pibbles to the Rescue and helped raise awareness about pitties, as well as showing off some very cute adoptable dogs! (see them at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pibbles-to-the-Rescue/156975217688759?ref=ts ) All in all, it was a great couple of weeks!

Lucy had an AMAZING trip in Tennessee with Caution the Gentle Giant and her mom, Nancy. She got to go to the mountains, soak up some sun by the dam, view the beautiful scenery, and hang out with Caution. She also got to go visit a confederate camp, The stones are engraved with names of soldiers and how they were killed. There usually is a sign up with information on how the soldiers were killed and what the engravings on the rock say. And they usually have pamphlets up about snakes, bears, hiking and how to be safe in the mountains. But they must of taken them down for the winter. The confederate soldiers were killed by the militians and not Union soldiers. After we visited the confederate camp, we headed down the mountain to watch the sunset. She also got to meet some Donkeys and a Mule on the property where Caution lives! To stop BSL, Lucy helped Nancy and Caution write positive pit bull messages on post-it notes and posted them around. Then she signed a petition (like the one for Lennox) to help another dog in a dire situation.
A big Thank You to Nancy and Caution for taking Lucy in for a week, and helping her on her journey to end BSL!

Lucy the WonderSock spent her first week in NEW YORK with her friend Cuda from cudacares.org and they had an awesome adventure! Check out what Cuda's mom had to say:
Cuda and Murphy took Lucy to the Big Apple, NYC, NY to see the sites and hear the sounds of a true New York Christmas. Many people came and greeted us as we walked around the city. Lucy stopped by Radio City Music Center Hall but her legs were not long enough for her to qualify as a Rockette. The tree at Rockefeller Center was so crowded so we had to take a picture from far away because we were afraid Lucy, Cuda and Murphy would get trampled. The City was bigger than the world to the three travelers!!After we watched the skaters at Rockefeller Center and talked to many people on the street about Cuda's mission to stop animal cruelty and to stop buying dogs and to accept pit bulls, we took a strange trip all the way the the Village and went to Obscura Antiques and Oddities. Obscure has a show on the Science Channel called Oddities because they sell old crazy stuff like two headed calves, scary looking doctor instruments and scientific experiment equipment.The next day we stopped at the Dutchess County SPCA in Hyde Park, NY. We talked with the Humane Law Officer and Assistant Manager of the Shelter about all of the pit bulls that come in there in addition to the animals they try to help. Many had sad looks on their faces. We took pics of Lucy with the trucks so people know who to call to stop animal cruelty- YOU. As a human you are the voice for the animals. They cannot call 911- it's up to you not to look away or hope someone else does something about it. Lucy knows how lucky she is to be with a family who loves her and wants all animals to have a safe and happy home!!!

This is very exciting! The Lucy the WonderSock is FINISHED and will be sent out in the next couple of weeks! Everyone who is already on the list, you will get an email letting you know when she is headed your way! I've made a couple of minor changes to her trip- first is, Lucy will be travelling with a USB instead of a camera; It was just too hard to find a camera that didn't have to have a program downloaded in order to view photos, and that's just too much of a hassle in this situation. SO, you will get a USB, use your own cameras for the photos and then load them onto the USB and send a copy to me via email so I can put them on the blog! The second change is, Lucy will be staying with you for a week instead of three days. The reason for that is, i've had a lot of people requesting to have Lucy visit over a weekend to go to events, and if everyone just has her for a week, you are guaranteed to get a weekend. Plus it's more time to take her fun places! Other than that, everything is the same! If you haven't signed up and want Lucy the Wonderbull to visit you, email me at email@example.com with your name, full address, and email, and I will add you to the list! Lucy will have alot of places to visit so she can only stay with each family for 1 week. Lucy will want pictures to document her trip, so make sure to snap at least FIVE pictures! You can always take more if you'd like! (rules for photos: NO obscene pictures, Lucy is a lady. You must take at least 5 pictures and at least 1 picture has to be of her helping to promote the end of BSL or raise awareness to her breed. How? Be creative! You can get her picture volunteering at a rescue or writing a letter to the city council-it's up to you!) After you've taken your pictures- hop onto the computer, upload them to the USB, and send them to me via email with a summary of her visit with you (what you did, who you met, etc) so I can put them in the blog. Once I recieve the pictures and travel log, I will email you with the next address to ship Lucy to. After that, send her on her way! I don't care which service is used to ship her but please make sure she has all her things and is comfortable, and has a tracking number, we don't want to lose her! After she's shipped, please email me with her tracking number as well. And be sure to check the blog often, I will update it weekly with Lucy's latest travel! Remember, anybody can sign up at ANY TIME, even after I send Lucy the WonderSock out, you'll just be added to the list and it's first come first serve. Spread the Word!
