STP's BLOG 07/06/12 "R.I.P. Lucy"
Sadly on Tuesday, July 3rd my pup, Lucy, passed away. She had a seizure and quickly passed away soon after that at the very young age of 7.
I'm devastated by this and I know for people that aren't "dog people" (or pet people for that matter) won't understand this, and I get that. For those that know where I'm coming from, you understand why this hurts.
I remember getting Lucy 7 years ago from a real nice family from Spanaway, and for the next 7 years my life was enriched by her spirit. Lucy didn't have a mean bone in her, my wife and I would always joke...she's all heart, no brains. In all honestly, she was a smart pup...she learned quickly and was the perfect dog.
For 7 years, I have been through a lot...the passing of important family members, the loss off a job, and many other life hurdles that many of us experience. The one thing I could always rely on, the one thing I could count on, was the second I opened the door...Lucy was there, full of excitement that "dad" was home. Any negative mood that might be in me would vanish immediately once I got to see my pup.
Thank you for all the great messages, your words helped these last couple of days. I read them all, and I thank you all. I am humbled by what you wrote, and touched that Lucy had an impact on you, through my stories.
I'm going to miss you Stinky, thankfully I got so many memories with you that the stories will last a lifetime, but selfishly I wish you were still right here by my side, I could always count on that!
Lucy will always be with me.
