Sitting with Lois Stelwagen in the dining room of the Sunset Home, she spoke of a new friend she had made. She described this new acquaintance as lovable, friendly and caring. “She looks into your eyes and really listens. She brings lots of smiles wherever she goes,” said Ms. Stelwagen. “When she comes to visit me, she’s always wagging her tail and putting her head in my lap.” Although this behavior may sound a little odd, it’s perfectly acceptable when it’s Lucy, Sunset Home Administrator Lance Allen’s 6-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever.
