Goodbye my sweet Lucy

Today Lucy was helped to the Rainbow Bridge :cry:.

I almost smiled as I chose the title because really until her much later years she was anything but sweet :lovestruck:. She was the most bratty puppy and for all her 14.5 years she was a stubborn brat but she was perfect for us and will forever be in our hearts.

We just returned last weekend from a two week camping trip where she did very well, swam almost every day and we all just enjoyed our time together. This week she took a turn and it was obvious her liver was no longer functioning enough. Yesterday we enjoyed a slow walk to the park where she happily splashed in the creek for about a half hour. Today we had lots of cuddles and kisses and now she is at peace.

I love you baby girl and will miss you always :candle:.

TeriM I am so sorry for your loss. I think of you so often with Lucy because I know that you and I both have been dealing with senior pups. It was always a good sign for me that Lucy was doing so well and being so happy. Gave me hope for much more time with Shadow. Bless you for being such a loving mommy to her. Lucy run free at the bridge and play in the water. :rip:

Thanks to all of you for such nice comments. It helps to know that others understand and feel the same depth of emotions that we share with our furry family.

I miss her horribly, was away from sunday to today and had lots of weeping moments. Worst was thinking what coming home to no yelllow dog was gonna be :(. Thoughts of course were worse and Riley and the cats gave me a lovely greeting.
