Lucy would have been with us 5 years this coming Memorial Day weekend, to which seems it was only a short time ago she came into our home.  This has been a bad year with the loss of Missy, Andy and Gracie so we have been putting this off for as long as we could. Her quality of life was gone, in the past few months dementia set in and she would have times of total confusion of who we were and where she was at among other issues she was dealing with. We have no idea of her actual age but we quess somewhere between12-14.  Our Lucy was not a happy paw.......up until a few months ago not a day would go by that she would not sit by the back door and cry for what we believe was her owner to come get here. She did not interact with the other paws ......she was a loner and pretty much kept to herself.  She loved walking the creek in the back of our house so a couple times a week Bill would let her roam down there for a period of time and when she tired out she would head back to the house.  She also loved riding in the truck, she would prop herself by the window or sit on a cushion to look out the window...........but her last trip in the car she curled up on my lap and never looked up........I even mention to Bill that in the time we have had her that was the first time she ever did that........curl up on my lap and lay her head down........she had no interest in what was going on outside the window. I will remember that time spent with her even though it was for only 15 minutes and it was on her last day of  life.  Love you Lucy Girl..................

I’m so sorry to hear of Lucy’s passing. I’ve always enjoyed listening to your stories of your paws, and I’m heartbroken for you. You have opened up your home to these beautiful paws and brought them so much love and  joy in their lives. They have given you all so much love back.

You’ve had a tough time of it lately. 

Hugs to you all 

You’re all in my thoughts and prayers

I am so sorry, Jeannine.  This year has been a tough one for you and I know how much you and Bill loved Lucy.  What a blessing for all of you she had those 5 wonderful years and was able to do some things she enjoyed.
