When Lucy gets a hold of things she shouldn't she does not release them - the scar on her owner's hand from when he tried to force a pen out of her mouth is testament to that - so tonight we taught her Drop It. We also taught her Leave It so she doesn't pick things up in the first place. Her owners than challenged Lucy and I with a roll of toilet paper, a recent favorite, and another pen. Challenge was accepted. You can guess the outcome.
