Unconditional Love
With a happy smile I greeted you each day
With my warmth I cuddled with you
Each day we gazed into each other’s eyes with so much love
Although I could not tell you how much I loved you back
Though sick with no cure you cared for me
You prayed for me with much hope
You fed me each day to satisfy my hunger
You gave me medicine to keep me going
Though at times I was weak you were always there
Though I tried not to show my pain it was too much to keep inside
I was not well inside and I didn’t know, but you knew how I felt
You tried your best to keep me alive for the short time I had
I wish for that split moment I could tell you
If I could speak I would’ve said I love you Master thank you for no more pain
I will be waiting for you when it’s your time and we’ll be together again
To kiss you, To love you unconditionally, To smell you, To be happy again.
I know you miss me as I miss you My Master.


My short life is not fair

My name is Lucky and this is my story up until now.
I was born August 3rd 2002 and bought by a wonderful and loving family that gave me and treated me as a queen. Every day walks, treats and of course food. Yearly checkups with no problems noted. I love my family so much and i know they love me and i don't want to die.
This year while getting groomed my groomer noticed i had a seizure and he called my doggie parents. My parents were shocked and thought i was under stress from grooming, but then i had another seizure a month later and my parents took me to the vet. The vet wanted to put me on anti-seizure medication but my dad refused, he wanted to have more tests done.
He asked the vet to perform a blood test which revealed a very Low Glucose level. When my master got home he researched why a dog would have low glucose level and have seizures. He found out information that stated this may be a cause of Hypoglycemia. So we went back to the vet a week later and asked to perform specific K-9 specific Panc Lipase index and 4 whole body radiographs. The only abnormality noticed was once again the low glucose.
After another seizure occurred i was taken to the vet again and had blood work for glucose again and also the Insulin/Glucose ratio blood work. The glucose taken in the office revealed again low glucose, when the results of the Insulin/Glucose ratio came in it showed very high levels of insulin 399.5, ratio=3995 & extremely low glucose=20). The vet was alarmed and I asked him to repeat the insulin/glucose ratio again after a week. It was performed again and insulin/glucose ratio came back even higher which was not good.
At this point my parents were told based on these results that I had an Insulinoma and I only had about 1 yr to live. My master asked what other test can confirm this diagnosis and 2 weeks later I had an Ultrasound performed by a specialist which comfirmed a 1.0 splenic nodule and multiple, hypoechoic pancreatic masses varying in size of 1-2cm in diameter. My parents are devastated I am only 6yrs old, they thought i would be around for at least 15yrs. I don't know why this happened to me I was fine about a year ago or so I thought.
Now I am on Prednisone, Proglycem and Herbal treatments to try to slow down the progression of this bad disease. Some days i am good, some I may have a seizure or vomit. My parents are so loving they do everything possible for me. I love my dog parents and I don't want to die. I hear my parents saying that they can't put me to sleep because it would hurt too much, that it's probably better if God takes me on his own. I sometimes hear my master praying for me then comes and hugs and kisses me.
I thought with a name as Lucky that i would be lucky forever, but I guess this is not the case. What I recommend to other pet owners is to never skip a yearly physical especially blood work. Insulinoma (aka pancreatic cancer) does not show signs until it is too late.
So I don't know how long I have with my masters but I love them. I am Lucky because I was raised by loving dog parents. When I die I'll be waiting for my parents in heaven when it's there time to come see me where their will be no more pain or suffering and only happiness and love.
I'll let everyone know when I am no longer here and I have crossed to doggie heaven. I love everyone and my name is Lucky.
I have crossed that rainbow bridge in the sky I'll miss everyone for it was my time as my name was Lucky.
