Lucky - I Sure Was

by Pam
(CT)

A year ago on Dec. 20 we had to put our dog Lucky down due to cancer that took him in just 2 weeks. I only had 2 weeks to say goodbye and I wasn't ready. Not nearly ready.

Getting Lucky was the first decision I made on my own and was responsible for. He was the best dog. A street dog for his first 2 years, we rescued him from a city pound. He never forgot that we saved him. He paid us back every minute with wags, hugs and kisses.

I suffer from severe depression and Lucky was a life saver, literally. He always knew when I was down and never left my side during those dark hours. Sometimes now I wonder how I will survive without his comfort.

Pam, you both were LUCKY
by: Robyn in California

What a wonderful story of love. I'm so glad to hear that the two of you had each other and how grateful you both were.

Lucky is now watching over you and will still be there when you are feeling down. I know how sad you are now but Lucky is cancer-free and dancing and playing and sending you so much love from above.

We're both Lucky!

I had a Lucky dog, also, and I feel my Lucky rescued me, as yours did you!! Thank you for sharing. Mine had cancer also and I found out this fall 2010, but she and I still had some good times towards the end. I keep dreaming about my Lucky. It's really hard for us, I know! Wish I could give you a hug.
