Thank you Lucky for being with us

As most of you know we lost Lucky 11 days ago. It was obvious that he was getting weaker and losing more weight. He still loved people food but was falling a lot and was often unable to get himself up without someone there to help. We made the decision Saturday morning after he was up most of the night . I slept with hi downstairs and he couldn't get comfortable. Spent all of his last 72 hours with him w/ the exception of the 2 hours I ran to the store to buy more rugs. our vet called on Saturday but I missed the call and then we talked on Sunday and she said she listened to my three messages in succession and she agreed it was time. Lucky got pasta on Friday, steak on sat and pasta again on Sunday. He got his doggy Sundae from DQ from our son and I got him Chicken Tenders on Monday. Yes those were his favorites. I couldn't take him for a tractor ride he was too weak and pain filled but we slept together for the final night my hand on him as often as it could be. Our vet who Lucky would bark and chase whenever she mowed her field next to our fence talked about Lucky's size and bark and how he would still surprise her even though she was looking for him. Lucky growled the whole time our friend was there and we gave extra pain meds before she came . I am so grateful to her for everything she has done for us. Lucky left us from his bed in our sunroom. It is the end of an era I don't have Daisy or Lucky anymore. I've been trying to write this for the past week but I read my name and my signature and realize my pups ,Daisy and Lucky ,the girls are all gone.
Lucky thank you for being my traveling companion ,my hiking partner and my all around ever present friend. I miss you more than I can find words to express. you were my last link w/ Daisy. I hope the two of you are together and she is probably telling you about her plans to run the joint. Tell her I love and miss her.I know Chevy and Thunder were not your favorites but tell them I miss their cuddles. I have to stop now b/c I'm in tears but I cant do this at home as I either go outside or read so I don't have to deal with how much I miss you. You were and are my heart. Thank you for loving me.

This makes me so sad. I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Lucky was very much loved by you and he knew that. I hope Charlie can help heal your heart.

So sorry for your loss. Daisy and Lucky were obviously very well loved and cared for all the way up to their last moment. It's so hard to lose family members. I wish you peace.

Warm regards,

Thank you everybody. Its been a difficult year. Charlie is calmer now and spends her evenings checking on me and my husband spending time with each of us. Thank you for sharing my journey with Lucky through this forum. I appreciate it.

I am sitting here on break at work with tears rolling down my face. I am so very sorry. I know you will miss Lucky but I do believe you will see him and all your pups again one day. Try to think of him now with no more pain and suffering, just running free and happy and playing. Hold your memories close till you see him again.
