Lucy, beloved golden retriever of 93.3 WMMR DJ Pierre Robert - a pooch met and petted by rock stars that included Judas Priest, Bon Jovi and Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders - died Friday of multiple organ failure. She was 13 1/2 and lived in Gladwyne.
The dog had become a station mascot of sorts in recent years, Robert said last night.
He began taking her to work when she began having orthopedic issues a few years ago. She had chiropractic, acupuncture and water-therapy treatments over the years and last week fell very ill, Robert said.
"Dogs are magical creatures. The sad thing is that they don't live terribly long," Robert said.
"Every cliche you ever hear, man's best friend, she was all that and more. She lived a great life."
