November 2002 – September 2013
Lucky lived here before I did.
He was a wonderful dog, faithful, smart, protective, gentle, funny. He was supposed to be full-blooded Lab, but obviously had a rogue Rottweiler somewhere in his background. He adored all three kids and would do anything for them.
A couple of years ago we found out he had testicular cancer. We had it (and them) removed but the vet warned us it may come back. He was healthy and looked great until this spring and summer. Finally we couldn’t let him suffer any more. He is now buried in our woods.
We are working on clearing that space out and planting some flowers. We may even put a bench out there.
I still look for him laying on the step, the third one up from the bottom, every time I pull into the drive way. Munchie still visits him out in the clearing. Out of habit, we look for him when we go out back to shoot our bows or shoot hoops.
We miss you, Lucky!
