Lucky - I Sure Was
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.
