As I have had my share of sadnesses and hardships in life, I do have to say that losing Lucky is runner up to the second worst thing to happen to me along with losing my dad.
Dogs are not just animals. They give a meaningful life to human beings. Their loyalty is greater then mans. The love they share is unconditional. That's why, it's not easy to let them go.
I wish what happened that day wouldn't have. It was a very gut wrenching thing for me along with our other dog Stella, to experience, as Lucky unfortunately drowned.
I want to thank you for the amazing sympathy as I called choking on my own words, trying to figure out the next steps. Thank you for your patience when we arrived, and being more then willing to help. I am very grateful you were able to do this process, and let us come back the very next morning. Thank you for the clay paw print, and letting me be apart of doing it, I'll cherish that forever. Thank you for the beautiful wood box and the engraving on it. Most of all, thank you for helping at such a vulnerable time and day in our lives. As I knew when I adopted Lucky as a senior at twelve years old, that this day would come, but it came all too suddenly, and not how anyone would/should lose their four legged friend.
This is a picture of Lucky. A few weeks before all of this. I just wanted to share that she was a very loving and sweet gal. She loved naps, treats, and good scratches. One thing she loved more then anything, was to be in the car with me, it didn't matter where we went, she loved car rides. She was so content and happy to just lay in the car to go anywhere. Lucky was the best swimmer I've met. She loved walking around and just going for a swim. That's what makes this all to unreal that this could happen to her.
They say dogs are the "best medicine". That "dog is man's best friend". They truly were not lieing. Our home isn't as "sweet" without her there.
I gave you enough to read now, but just wanted to let you know how immensely appreciative I am for the kindness that Steve and PK for Pets has showed to me to make this step the slightest bit easier. Life is so short and precious.
Just know that a thousand thank you's just would not be enough for your help with all of this.
