On August 13, 2014 my gentle good girl, Lucy, left my side. Funny ladylike loving demure friendly smart soft playful quiet loud precious. She had all those qualities and more.
Lucy needed a lot of love when I met her. She had no home stability, was abused and neglected the first eight years of her life.
I earned Lucy's trust and affection, minute by minute. She gave an inch and I gave a yard until one day Lucy's world was stress-free, happy, and optimistic. She realized that she was in a home with people who wanted her and accepted her completely.
Last week she had an emergency health problem which surgery was supposed to have fixed, but the surgery created problems, too big for Lucy to overcome.
There are no definitive answers for why she could not recover.
I searched high and low, asked loads of questions, all without success. Now there is a huge aching hole in my heart and soul.
She built up my energy each day in return with little triumphs and encouragements.
I'm going to try and remember her life lesson and how it included me. In time, letting her go, with all the pain and hurt, will probably soften, but never go away.
Paw prints on the heart are indelible.
Good night my sweetie pie,
you're my best and most good girl.
I love you dearly and completely.
Lucy, you are my treasure.
Thank you Linda, Stacy, and Debbie for your prayers and positive energies. Knowing that Lucy and I had you encouraging us was a blessing.
I wanted to let friends and readers know that this will be my last blog post for a while.
I hope you all get to experience a great love from a pet you treasure.
Until we meet again - my wish is for you to be well, kind, and content ...
