Spike’s Pack, November 2008 – Lucy Suiter

November 2008’s addition to Spike’s Pack is a Yorkshire Terrier, Lucy Suiter.  Lucy lives in Atlanta, Georgia and she is loved by Amy and Corey Suiter, her parents.  Lucy is an adorable, prissy little girl, and her sweet face gets her out of trouble most of the time!  She likes mischief, and she truly is the boss of the house.  Nine times out of ten, you can find her pulling the toilet paper off of the roll, or hiding “little treasures” under the bed and sofa.

She likes to sleep, play hide and seek, play with her “brother-in-law” Bailey the Schnoodle, visit her grandparents in Brunswick to play with her brothers Sam and Nemo (kitties), de-stuff toys, eat treats, and sneak food from the table.
