Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]
Goodbye, Lucky Tuesday

In July of 2001, my parents adopted a dog after the vet told them not to get attached (that's Lucky as he appeared 10 days after they adopted him on the top left, and wow, freeservers. That's a hell of a flashback).

He was a neurotic, fun, loving, not-exactly-dog-friendly goofball. He was the dog who had to back out of the room. He was the dog who bit the (concrete) bear. He was a big crybaby.

Lucky TuesdayHe was confused by life, often.

Lucky in Nana's spotHe was in ur garden, snorflin the flowers.

He was also a pureblooded white shepherd. With that, unfortunately, came hip displacia. He'd been doing well enough on medication with TLC to make sure he didn't hurt himself. Yesterday, however, my father noticed that he was having trouble getting water from his dish. And he didn't eat (and this is a dog that, once he came to my parents, never missed a meal for any reason).

And then he tripped on their girl dog, and fell, and couldn't get back to his feet again.*

I'm sad. I will miss him when I go home. My parents are devastated.


* I am sad. But this is so typical of Lucky; he went out of their life much the same way he came in: clumsily.

Awww. I am sorry. It really just SUCKS to lose a beloved dog.

I second what Lisa said. It SUCKS large! I'm very sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm glad that Lucky found a loving home with people who nursed him back to health and appreciated his quirks.

I'm sorry he had to leave y'all so soon.

I'm sure I've said it before, but what a pretty pup. I'm sorry to hear of his problems. My condolences.

aw man :( I'm sorry. He sounded like he brought a lot of joy in your lives.

My deepest sympathies. It's so hard to lose them.

Nothing I can say can help, still..... wishing that your and your family's grief be short and your joyful memories of Lucky stick around a lot longer *hugs*

It's sad that he's gone, but the stories you have to tell! What a great dog he was. :)

Sorry to hear this.

That sucks Jo. My condolences to you and your family.

So sorry for your family's loss.

I am so sorry he is no more, but what a sweet dog and a sweet tribute.
