Today we sent our sweet girl, Lucy, to the Rainbow Bridge. Lucy's body could no longer serve her indomitable spirit and it was time to let her go. She is now once again running, playing and chasing the birds and squiggels, just as she did before her body failed her. We will surely be seeing her again in our dreams, and she will remain forever in our hearts. Never will we forget the joy and love she brought us, nor the lessons she taught us of living life to its utmost with integrity, humor, selflessness and extraordinary determination.
We adopted Lucy (formerly, "Marcy") from the Humane Society Silicon Valley on December 29, 2004. As a senior dog with more than her share of physical challenges, at the time of her adoption we anticipated Lucy might be with us only six months or so. However, we sorely underestimated Lucy's tenacity and strength of will. She graced our lives for nearly three and half years, every minute of which we treasured. Though her last six months were fraught with struggle, Lucy never let her handicap get in the way of enjoying her life or showering us with her unconditional love.
To our Lucy girl, we now sadly say goodbye and ask that you keep her in your thoughts as she journeys toward her next life ... o'er the rainbow and into everlasting peace.
Our hugs to you all,
Nikki, Ananda, Maggie and Nikko
