.My Lucy has her Angel Wings....

Rainbow Bridge - June 19, 2008 

In My Heart 
I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence. I often speak your name.
Now all I have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which Iíll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart. 

"In Loving Memory of Lucy"

Hallowe'en Memories
Lucy, aka Clark's Lavender Lucy Lee (toy poodle) died at about 3 am Thursday, June 19th. She was two weeks shy of her 15th birthday. Lucy was born July 1st, 1993 at the edge of a cornfield/home of a backyard breeder/borderline puppymill in Waldron, Indiana. She was, is, and will always be my first dog. 

My partner at the time had insisted on purchasing her because she was cheap. Even though I didn't know a lot about dogs at the time I knew this was not the criteria for purchasing a puppy. Despite being a horrific example of the breed standard Lucy was one hell of a sweet dog who for many years took her place on my lap. She suffered from almost every disease/structural abnormality bad breeding can produce. The two hundred dollar poodle quickly racked up thousands in veterinary bills and suffered needlessly so someone could make a buck. Irregardless she could not have been more loved. That's the problem with backyard bred/puppymill dogs. You
still love them. Lucy made me promise myself to never, ever support the type of breeder that produced her. I have kept that promise. I only ask that you consider not turning a blind eye those who exploit our dogs for money.

As those of you who were kind enough to respond to my call for help when it seemed as if Lucy had pneumonia, thank you. A review of her x-ray by a board certified radiologist changed that diagnosis to a probable mass in her lung. Had it not been for the support and information I got from this group beginning the day Lucy was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago I don't think she would have made it
as far as she did. Please help me celebrate the life of one of the luckiest and sweetest dogs on earth. No more diabetes, no more heart disease, no more blindess, no more cancer. She's free and I am happy for her. Thanks for reading this.
