Re: The Recovery Process
I remember one beutifull summer day,I packed a lunch and a few biscuits for my shepherd "Lucky".We walked to a nearby mountain and start a great hike,we were heading to the headwaters of the mountainside river.
Along the meandering trail we saw remnants of the past,logging equipment rusting away almost to dust,further trecking up the trail a babbling stream at our sides.We both saw brook trout jumping at the newly hatched mayflower bugs,I rested awhile and let "Lucky" frolic in the warm water pools nearby.A few hours into the hike we came very near to the top and saw more remnants of the pioneer day lumber mills,old saw blades,tattered porcelain pieces from the early chinese labourers.
Along the trek we said hello to the other hikers mostly passing us,in the mountains the weather can change in minnuts,a major rain storm started.I along with my wonderfull pet dog,both went under a large Fir true to stay dry.I looked at Lucky face and thought to myself what a wonderfull dog....
The rain stopped and I decided was time to walk back home due to the weather concearns,we were mayby minnits away from the top,which was our destination.
I write of this most wonderfull summer day,for a few days later,Lucky was no longer with us,maybe for this accident prone german shepherd the name "Lucky" was not apre-pro.Though she made my life lucky to have her by my side,even if for a short time. oj not easy for anyone to loose a beloved pet
