I Miss My Lucy

by Lynn Yoss
(Boynton Beach Florida)

Lucy was a Westie we brought into our home four years ago when my husband was dealing with many health complications due to cancer. He felt like he needed a "therapy dog", so we bought Lucy. She was the most beautiful of the litter, but that's not why we chose her. She was chosen because of her personality and spunkiness. Well, she was a handful, but we loved every minute we had with her. She was by my husbands side through all his good days and bad days, at that time more bad days than good days. She was so funny when she watched TV, which she did all the time. She used to bark like crazy at other animals on TV, not just dogs, any animals. God took my little Lucy way too soon. The vet said it must have been a brain aneurism, but it doesn't really matter. What matters is that she was loved and gave love everyday she was ours. We miss her terribly, and although we will get another dog, she will never be replaced.

I Miss My Lucy
by: Doreen UK

Lynn I am sorry for your loss of your Westie Lucy. I had just watched my favourite soap and felt the sorrow of a father losing his daughter Lucy. I then opened your grief post which said "I miss my Lucy". How strange is that.
My sister has a Westie called Dixie dying of cancer. She doesn't know what she is going to do. I lost my husband of 44yrs. to a deadly cancer 2yrs. next week and it was a horrendous cancer journey. Your Lucy would have been such a comfort and a health diversion for your husband suffering cancer also. Such a dreadful disease. Of course you will never replace Lucy. But you gave her love and she comforted you in your need. You have a very mature healthy attitude in knowing you loved her and gave her what she needed and you will keep on doing this with each pet you have. All individuals with their own unique personality that will enhance your life. I am learning to hold everything loosely and not so close that I couldn't bear to lose anything. People, pets, or possessions. This thought was brought home to me when my husband died and left everything behind and then I thought how we accumulate so much in life and yet can't take anything of it with us, except the love and giving we have done in our lives.
I hope that you will grieve your loss of Lucy and be able to recover from the love of another pet who will comfort and Bless your life.
