Tailer Lacey is the picture of contentment, whether lounging in “her spot,” chasing her Frisbee squirrel or getting an ear scratch. Wendy and Terry Lacey’s 10-year-old golden retriever is comfortable in her role as queen of the castle and basks in their adoration. “She is just the best dog,” says Wendy. “We know everyone says that about their dogs,” added Terry, “but she has been such an easy dog to live with.” Wendy had been checking out dogs at the then-new Nebraska Humane Society adoption center when a litter of fluffy pups caught her eye. Tailer was the smallest and seemed to be a bit picked on. “I knew right away she was my dog,” said Wendy. “Her eyes just drew me in.” The golden pup was smart, easy to train, and sweetly gentle. “I don’t think people realize how many fantastic purebreds go through the shelter,” Wendy explained, “or how many dogs are there due to factors beyond their control. Terry agreed. “They aren’t bad dogs. They’ve simply had some bad luck.” Thanks to Wendy and Terry, Tailer’s luck changed long ago!
