Lucy is the newest addition to our family


Lucy is from a litter of seven born in Red Bluff, CA.
Here she is with her mom, who took her swimming every day!

This is her dad, looks kind of like.....me.

Swimming in the ranch pond is a daily activity with Lucy's family. Yes, Lucy is from a horse ranch, so she fit in immediately at RustRidge. She is a terrific swimmer.

Lucy already knows that this is where we like to sit outside the B&B.  All the guests are amused that we sit on the chairs. I don't know why.

This was Lucy's first walk in the vineyard.
