It’s Birthday Day – Part 2 – Lucie and Larry

Larry and our big girl, Lucie, share the same birthday, or at least we celebrate them on the same day.   When we rescued Lucie from the Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue @ 7 years ago, all we knew was that her birthday was in December, but we did not have an exact day.   So to make things easier, we just decided to celebrate her special day on Larry’s special day, December 10th.

As I mentioned in my previous post It’s Birthday Day – Part 1 – Breakfast Burritos Larry made breakfast burritos for his co-workers.   I made his favorite meal for dinner after I got home.   Larry’s favorite meal is Steak Oscar.   Steak Oscar  Other than that, Larry’s birthday was pretty low-key.  It wasn’t a big number and it did not end with either a zero or a five, plus it was a “school day”.   Both of us had to get up early for work today, so going out and painting the town red was not an option (not that we do that anyway).  He will be celebrating more tonight when he goes to the Av’s game.  Larry is a big hockey fan, and the Avalanche is our team.  Go Av’s!!!!!!

Lucie got a new “baby” for her birthday.  She was very happy with it.  She has been carrying it around with her all day.  Lambchops seems to be a favorite of both Lucie and Vinnie.  This one is their 3rd.  Lucie is very gentle with her babies whereas Vinnie likes to destroy them.   Hopefully Vinnie will let Lucie enjoy her Lambchops for awhile before he decapitates it and rips out the squeaker.  🙂  Lucie is now 8, which is up there for a big dog.  She is showing her age, but then again, aren’t we all.  She knows she is well loved, and that is really all that matters. Larry is slightly older than 8.  He’ll tell you he feels pretty old too though.  🙂




Happy Birthday to both Larry and Lucie.  Love you lots.

  1. Awwwww, happy birthdays to them!!!! I love “gotdrool” so much. We had an English Mastiff (sadly passed away a couple years ago). Oh, man, that dog could drool. Our last house had a 2.5 story vaulted ceiling in the great room, and no joke, he flung drool all the way up to the top when he’d rattle and shake. We got him from a breeder who was in hard sales mode, and she told us that Mastiffs did not drool. We knew it was not true, and it had no impact on our decision to get a Mastiff, but it has been an inside joke for 13 years now. Whenever someone says something crazy, we say “yeah, and Mastiffs don’t drool.” Love, love, love the big dogs.

    1. Girl, you and I are 2 peas in a pod. I love how he got his drool all the way up to the vaulted ceilings. Lucie is not that bad. Vinnie is not much of a drooler at all. It has to do with the size of their jowls. the bigger the jowls, the more they drool.

  2. Happy belated birthday to Larry and Lucie from me and my pack, Deja, Flowie and my new rescue Cooper. Today is my son’s 35th birthday, Friday the 13th. And yes, he was a little terror lol. It looks like you had a wonderful celebration. My Deja(7)F Pittie is a toy destroyer, and Flowie (10)F Am Bull is the sweet one who takes care of the babies. Cooper (7 months)M ? is a wild child, he goes wide open all the time, but is good to his babies, a mixture. I just love your St. Bernards, so cuddly! What’s a little drool between friends?
