TownsPet of the Week: Lucy

The Andover Townsman

---- — Ten-month-old Lucy is more than just a pretty face. The yellow Labrador retriever is training to compete in agility with her owner, Nicholas Carleton of County Road. Last month, they competed in their first dock diving competition at the Hopkinton State Fair. Lucy jumped 19 feet, 9 inches on her first dive and took first place. She also had the longest dive for the day in her division. Carleton also has a black Labrador retriever, Sophie, that he has been competing in agility with for the past five years.
