Last weekend, my daughter and I created the flower arrangements and bouquets for a friend's wedding. Friday morning 100 dozen flowers were delivered to my house. We worked through the night to complete our gift to the bride and groom. The fruits of our labor were delivered to the church and reception on Saturday.
When we returned home late Saturday night we discovered our Collie, Lucia, nestled between the buckets of unused flowers and an antique armoire in the laundry room.
We rescued this sweet dog last June. Our vet believes she lived much of her life on the streets. She still prefers to sleep hidden between pieces of furniture, behind a door, or outside, with her head tucked behind a flower pot. It's hard to believe that someone left this gentle soul alone on the streets of Dallas. Her legs had been broken, she had cuts on her body, and someone had shaved a haphazard design in her beautiful coat. She is now in her "Forever Home " living like a princess. On Saturday, she became a Flower Girl!
