Arrival Story:
My ex-boyfriend, driving home from work one night on a remote, country road saw Lucky (about 4 mos old) in the middle of the road. He could't stop quick enough and ran over her. Luckily, the wheels missed her and she was just grazed by the underside of the truck and rolled. He took her to the emergency vet and thankfully was not seriously injured, but was very malnourished, covered in mange and fleas. She obviously had been either dumped or neglected. I half-heartedly tried to find her owner, placed an ad in the paper (no wide spread use of internet at the time, lol!). But after two months of nursing her back to health, I had fallen in love with her.

Lucky, to me, was one of the great ones! She was my best friend, helped me through the break-up of the aforementioned ex-boyfriend (and a few others, lol!) She quite possibly saved my life once; my current fiance and I had gone camping and took Lucky with us. One morning, I was cooking breakfast, my fiance had gone down a steep embankment to fish in the river when a strange man walked into our campsite. Lucky had always been an extremely friendly dog, loved everyone, but when this guy came into our campsite, Lucky went crazy! It took every amount of stength I had to hold on to her leash to keep her from attacking this guy. My fiance heard the commotion and came back up to the campsite, the stranger fled. Who knows what would have happened if she had not been there. I shared my life with Lucky for nearly 12 years. She succumbed to cancer in August of 2007. I still miss her so very much.
