It’s early in the morning on August 18, 2010 and Lucy is up and ready to go. Today is the day she makes her historic climb up Mt. Washington.
She’s not thinking about her paralyzed legs or how she was left on the side of the road for days after being hit by a car… Because TODAY, she’s making it to the TOP! (and because Lucy is a dog).
This just goes to show that determination and drive transcends us humans… maybe it’s Lucy’s animal instinct to survive and move forward but maybe it’s more. She gets what a true High Roller is.
Lucy decks out her wheelchair, and moves around this world to her bark and beat!
Whether on foot or wheels…KEEP CLIMBING YOUR MOUNTAIN TIL YOU MAKE IT TO THE TOP!
