"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, and his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
We feel we were worthy of her unconditional love this morning when we made the decision to say good-bye and take her pain away. Lucy was diagnosed with bone cancer in her right rear leg almost a year ago. She’s so stubborn and such a tuff girl, she fought it off all this time. For the past month or so she bravely carried that leg and went right on with things the best she could, but we knew by her behavior that she was in daily pain. We didn’t want that for her anymore.
It’s been such a sad day today. Our hearts are broken and we already miss her like crazy. Lauren has asked about her a few times today and we have tried our best to explain that we had to let her go to doggie heaven so she can run and play there like she couldn’t do here.
Good-bye, dear Lucy, we love you so much. You were a constant source of light in our house for many years and we will always remember you.
