One Lucky Dog

We Said Goodbye Today.

Saturday, March 1, 2008, we laid our sweet angel Lucky to rest in a pet cemetery not too far from where we live. It's so hard to lose a furbaby, especially when they have been so sick and you've tried so hard for them. Lucky fought a brave fight and we felt that we owed it to her to send her to the Bridge with dignity. The director coordinated the flowers with the blanket that we covered her with and we put a few special toys in with her. Right now she is probably "ribbiting" her frog, making her gorilla scream and squeaking her Jewish bone. We also gave her a compressed rawhide and some homemade treats. It was a beautiful service and, along with us, was attended by Grandma, Grandpa, her human brother and some friends of the family. That was really special to us because they had only known Lucky for a couple of months. Lucky was buried next to her sister, Sandy, and a bunch of silk jonquils were placed at her head. In the spring, we'll plant some annual flowers and in the fall we'll plant jonquils to come up next year. We could not have asked for a better day. The sun was shining and it was about 70 degrees (that's very unusual for a March day around here). We could just envision Lucky laying out on the grass in our backyard. She loved days like that.

We know that Lucky is wagging her tail and smiling down on all of us from the Bridge and running on all four legs with all the other Bridge pups, young and pain free once more. She and her sister, Sandy, have totally spoiled us, so we know that we will get another dog eventually. The house is too empty and too quiet without a cold nose and wagging tail to great us every day. We now have very happy memories of our sweetie and we will be posting those in her diary as we remember them.
We want to thank everyone for all the support, prayers, rosettes, special gifts, candles, etc., etc. that were sent our way. Without our Dogster pals we never could have gotten through any of this. We've said it before and it is truer than ever--the Dogster community is amazing!
