Left to carry on.

May be too soon to write anything that will do her justice but I just wanted you all to know that over the years I have gleamed much good information on here. You fellow dog lover's whom I have never met have helped Lucy and I past some health issues and in general provided much support and I thank you.

We got Lucy in 2002 late December at the ripe old age of 3 months. She came into our family at just the right time. She was my running mate for 7 years and just loved it. She was a comfort to my wife when I was on the road. She looked like she could be a force to be contended with but all who knew her realized she was a sweetie at heart. I have had more than one Vet and Vet techs. say she must have been bred for temperament because she was so easy to work with.

Having been with us for 11 years (almost) there is not a place in my heart she has not been, my god the memories! And the physical evidence of her in and around our house, it's everywhere lol! I used to complain about the amount of hair and I would say that I am surprised she has any hair on her lol!, Now I am finding that I dont want to vacuum the house, once the hair is gone it wont be back, not lol! I could go on and on but this little bit made me feel better.

She came down with some type of infection according to the vet (elevated white blood cells) but no one expected her to pass Saturday night, not us, not the vet, no one. It was a total shock.

We moved from Virginia Beach to Pennsylvania when she just turned 10. The move was hard on her but she was a trooper and loved the cooler weather here. She had a big bed in the house, on the front porch and on the back deck. And other than I walks to the river a few times a week 3/4 of a mile she would gladly move from one bed to another.

My wife and I buried her at my hunting camp located a few miles from our new home, she loved it there of course. Loved hanging out with the guys! It's just so very hard.

Love you Lucy!

I'm so sorry for your loss. It was a touching story. Not sure what to say here. Do you have any pictures of her to share on here? She is in a better place now. RIP Lucy.

Sorry man, it's a rough thing to deal with. People will tell you it gets easier with time, and it does. Really it does, won't feel like it for awhile, dogs are so good at worming into our hearts that the loss is a particularly powerful one.

So sorry for your loss.

At least you both got to share many great years of memories. And although you won't be able to see her, she'll still always be there with you and your family.
