Princess Lucy, Angel, and the Great Puppy Rescue


Good Evening and Happy Summer Solstice Weekend Everyone! My name is Princess Lucy and I am one of the three Littles at LCAL. That is my glamour photo above. Frida and I rocked the PetCo Adoption Event with Tarzan on Saturday. Here is Frida’s glamour photo below. She is a little shyer than I am.


Frida, Clooney, and I make up the Littles at LCAL and this has been a month for Littles– let me tell ya. More on that in a minute. Let me take a moment to tell you a bit about Frida and me. (Clooney will introduce himself another week – since he wasn’t able to make it to the Adoption Event this weekend.)

Lady Frida is a sweet loving 11 year old girl who just wants a place to snuggle. Snuggling is her favorite past time!! Although she is a senior pup she still has some get up and go! She LOVES her walks. Lady Frida is not a barker like many Chihuahuas, but she will join in if the rest of the pack starts “singing.” She loves all people, including kids. She gets along great with the cats and other little dogs in her foster home. Her Foster Mom says she is “just a mellow, sweet soul” and they love having her. Here is a picture of Frida from Saturday saying “Hey, would you consider giving me a Furever Home?”

While Frida is all Lady, I can be a bit of a Pomeranian Princess. Like many “Royals” I have a big personality. In fact the AKC suggests that my Big Dog Demeanor is trapped in a Little Dog Body. I LOVE to give lots of kisses. And I am so smart and inquisitive (if I do say so myself). I can be a little nervous at first when meeting new people but I warm up quickly. I like to snuggle with my humans but I also have Royal manners and will only come up on the bed or couch when invited. I am around seven years young and I love to play with my Foster Mom, Colleen. In fact, here is a picture of me hanging out with Mom on Saturday!

Lucy and Colleen

I am happy running around – spinning actually – I spin in circles when I get excited. (One of my many tricks.) But I also enjoy relaxing in my dog bed. (A Princess needs her rest you know.) Of course I am crate trained and happy with all people, dogs and even cats! (Mainly because I am a little indifferent to dogs and cats and focus my attention on my Royal Subjects the Humans.) Here is another picture of me!

Speaking of Littles, look who we found at the Adoption Event on Saturday!


This Little Girl was about 5 weeks old and a nice guy named Benjamin found her crying by herself in the bushes. Benjamin wasn’t looking for a new family member but he took Kitty in and decided to adopt her. (Funny how that works out!) He was at PetCo getting supplies when we met them. Thank you so much for giving Kitty a safe and loving home and being her Furever Family. Here is a picture of Benjamin and Kitty.


Okay, now for the BIG NEWS! Do you remember The Route 62 Angel who rescued Puppy Rav from the garbage bag on the side of the highway? Well, she has done it again! The Route 62 Angel has an amazing ability of being in the right place at the right time to protect us Littles from harm. A few weeks ago, she was driving through the desert and spotted a litter of six puppies on the side of the road. She jumped out to rescue these babies and immediately called LCAL for help. In a few hours, The Great Puppy Rescue had begun! Really, who would leave these girls on the side of a desert highway with their brothers?

But that is not the end of the story! As Angel was driving these six puppies to safety, she found ANOTHER litter of puppies. This baby here and her siblings!

Puppy 4

They were all by themselves wondering what had happened to their Mommy and their Humans! Well, the next day Angel went BACK to that lonely stretch of road leading out into the desert just to make sure she had found everyone. And she found TWO MORE puppies! Here is another picture. Doesn’t he have the most beautiful blue eyes! Angel is truly a wonder watching over us, protecting us from danger, and carrying blessings into our lives. Thank you Route 62 Angel!

Puppy 5

Well as you may imagine, this created a bit of puppy fever at LCAL. Everyone wanted a cuddle. And there were many offers from the LCAL Village to foster and adopt. We have a great Village and puppies have that “je ne sais quoi” about them. But, the applications for puppies are months in the queue. As a result, almost all the puppies had homes before they even made it out of 29 Palms. (I can admit it. Stewart, Frida, Diva, Kuma, Tarzan and I were all a little envious. But we wish those puppies the best.)

So! If you think you want to adopt a puppy, please get your applications in NOW, so you are ready when the opportunity presents itself. All the steps in the application process can be completed so you are good to go!

BUT also remember, us older guys have a lot to offer too. Honestly, maybe more since we are often crate trained and house broken with excellent Royal Manners.  Big SHOUT OUT to Sweet and Sassy Stewart who made it to the Adoption Event this weekend. Way to go big guy! I told you it wouldn’t be scary!


And of course Tarzan who greeted PetCo shoppers for hours with his big pink tongue hanging out. You made this Princess proud!


If you are interested in adopting an LCAL Rescue Pup – please complete an application on line so you are ready when the right Fur Baby comes along!
