    My buddy Lucky

    My buddy Lucky had to go today. I am crushed. He was sick, diagnosed with lymphoma but we fought it for a few months......He was a rescue dog with lots of "spirit". We could not have folks over as he would ensure he was the dude. He was a really cool dude and I miss him already. He will meet me another day.
    So I tuned the Larrivee, drop D, then DADGAD.

    So sorry to hear about Lucky's passing. Prop to you for the second chance you gave a rescue pet.

    Condolences.

    You might have seen some of my posts about my buddies as well as recent health scares and know how much I empathize.

    Comfort will be found in all those "cool dude" moments you'll remember.

    Sorry to hear, it was cool of you to give him another chance, and a good one at that. No picture?

    I am very sorry for your loss.

    You rescued him, you appreciated him, and I am sure he loved you for that. They know.

    It is a hard thing, but that's the price we pay for love in the end. Think of the good times, and think of all you gave him, an he gave you. That's the best we can do at times like these. It doesn't make it ok, but it does help me through the early and difficult stage of loss.

    You have my sincere condolences.

    Stout beers under trees, please.

    My buddy Lucky-dscn0058.jpg Pic of Lucky. Wife did a good thing, we now have a Rhododendron where he is resting. He was a rascal and will be looking for another like him someday....hopefully without all the drama. He would be let in with his entire nose covered in dirt and look at us like what? What hole? I didn't dig any hole?

    Great pic!!!

    I was 26 when I lost my first dog. That might not sound like much except I got him when I was 9.



    That is ME wearing a "spacesuit" and Mom's red boots. Damn Photobucket's watermark!!!

    Many of my co-workers at the time knew him and of our long relationship so upon his passing, one friend donated a very nice plot of never used farmland as a final resting place, while a few months later, another friend insisted I meet her at her house without giving details.

    Upon arrival, she presented me with a scraggly worm infested mess of a pup who began my era of multiple dogs!!!

    He had short hair and was small, which were the exact opposites of what he became once cured of worms and mange!



    I've had a lot of dogs (above pic is Cy & Musha (Doberman)) and despite the pain of loss, still hold them all close!

    Thanks for sharing your story and allowing me the chance to find some of my old "memories".
