LUCILLE D.E.R.P. - QUEEN OF SPADE
Born to a race track in Daytona Beach, Florida, this fabulous greyhound sprinted to a mediocre record under the name 'Queen of Spade'. With only one win and a banged up leg after twelve races she graciously retired from the track at the age of 2. She was elated to find a home in Nova Scotia with Geoff and Karen. Now living under the code name Lucille she spends her time laying in the sun, monitoring the neighborhood from her window and fending off squirrels from the back yard. She is a terrible worker and only motivated by carrots. Being not a fan of hard work, nor the rain, you'll never see her on the job site, but rest assured, while our team is hard at work for you, she's at home, napping. She truly is the Queen of Spade.
