Matt on May 15, 2023 at 7:49 pm Lucy, I miss you terribly. It’s hard to write this looking at you sweet face. I’d give anything to have you come back…to take you for walks…to give you treats under the table at dinner time…to catch you chewing up a sock or a slipper…to see you lying by my feet at night, when I stayed up late, and everyone else was in bed…to play hide and seek (wish we’d done that more often!)…greeting us with a towel in your mouth, doing the Lucy shake, when we’d come home…playing in the snow…chasing squirrels…going crazy when you saw a cat. You loved every person you met, and every dog, too. You were one of a kind, and I love you, and always will. All four of us in this house love you and miss you. 15 years is a long time for a dog like you to live…we feel blessed that we got bonus years with you. But, they weren’t enough. They would never be enough. At the end, we couldn’t bear to see you suffering, so we had to say goodbye. Even though it broke four hearts. See you at the end of the rainbow bridge someday…my sweet, playful, loving dog…my beautiful friend…my buddy forever!
