Did you know that Desi and Lucy were dog lovers?

Early in their marriage, Ricky and Lucy owned a 5 acre ranch in the San Fernando Valley which they named Desilu. Among other animals they raised chickens, cows and had about 5 or 6 dogs. Ricky and Lucy were such animal lovers that although they ate their chicken's eggs and drank their cow's milk, they never killed their animals for food but treated them all like pets. Their dogs were coddled. Lucy had a toy poodle she named Tinker which frequently traveled with her. In fact, she had a succession of five toy poodles, all of which she named Tinker and she loved them all dearly. Just another reason to love Lucy.
