In Loving Memory of My Couch Potato: Lucy
March 12, 2007 10:20 PM
Today was a devastating day for our family, as we put down our beloved Yellow Labrador, Lucy, only age 5, from what seemed, at first, only to be minor, gastro distress. But over these past 72 hours, her status rapidly deteriorated into acute renal failure. She had the best of care, many consultations from three loving vets. No choice, but the worst.
For all of you who know Lucy, she loved TV. She was always with me in the den, in my lap, all 70+ pounds of her watching along with me, so, so many boring DVD cable pilots. Well, and sometimes, actually a few great ones. It didn’t matter. She loved all TV. She smiled through it all. But, alas, no more.
So with heavy heart I share this news with all of you, and urge you to be vigilant of your loving charges. They leave pawprints on our hearts. And for now, at least, I can’t even look at a television set. I miss her smile. So, help me in sending her off to heaven, with your remarks, and a toast for her, and all of our beloved lost pets. Today blows, bigtime, for me.
