How do I described Lucy. The little dog with a heart of gold. The puppy who believed she could catch airplanes. The dog that thought she could leap to the eve of the house after lizards. The one that could spend hours trying to catch fish, in a pond. Her nose was always in search of something, and that lead to lots if digging. She loved it, and we let her. She bounced, she trotted, she ran like the wind, but never did she just walk. Her tail was always wagging, and she greeted everyone with a toy in her mouth. She quickly became the favorite dog to anyone that visited the house. Her sweet ways earned her lots of special privileges. Car rides when I wasn't planning on taking a dog. The food taster in the house when I'm cooking. And even a place at the table on some nights.
She was not the pushy kind, but instead gave soft moans so you would invite her to snuggle with you. If you stopped rubbing her, you would hear the soft moan again, as a gentle reminder. She was always busy. It's as if she knew she needed to experience a lifetime in 6 short years. I always felt like I was letting her go. I let her run bigger, swim farther than I was comfortable with. But she was Lucy, and holding her back just wouldn't feel right. She was a dog that didn't know the word quit, and pushed everything outdoors to the limit. She fought so hard to stay with us. Four surgeries in ten days, and she was still fighting. I could only do what I had been doing for her, all her life. I had to let her go.
Lucy was a special little girl to my family. She was loved more than I could ever put into words, and she is greatly missed.

Lucy was put on rimadyl, after she was spayed. In the five days she took it, it perforated her colon. She underwent surgeries to repair it, but each time the colon would start to deteriorate at the surgical site. She was taken from us way to soon.

Lucy is immortal now because you have shared her with the world and the love for her has increased seven times sevenfold.

She was/is so very brave my words cannot express the sorrow that I feel but yet I strive to describe the joy I feel when I read Your words and see your pictures..

Thank you for your courage to share her with us she chose your family for comfort, companionship, for love- always remember that she believed in your family; she gave her heredity loyalty to you, the gift of.cuddling and her sweet scent as she enveloped you.

Our thoughts of comfort are with you- our joy that she is not suffering is with US.

In memory,
Cuddlebuglove

Today marks one year without our beautiful Lucy.
She was such a ray of sunshine, that our world is a little less bright without her in it.
I can not even begin to put into words how much we loved her, or how much she is missed.






So this is where we part, my friend,
and you'll run on, around the bend,
gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.
I will go on, I'll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not length.
One long embrace before you leave,
share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, are so I thought,
will remember well all you have taught.
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
take with you this... I loved you best.

We miss her too, though we never met her. And your commemoration brings a tear to our eye.

The poem is beautiful and reminds me of the mystery of it: how can this be that we lose them when they are so precious to us? There is no comprehension that they are here and integral to our lives and then they are gone.

It's easy to say that there will be more sunny days and open fields with dogs racing ahead, but there's no pretending that it will be the same.

So sad, and thank you for sharing your experience with rimadyl. Lots of information online regarding that and the precautions to take before qualifying a dog for treatment with rimadyl. Many stories of vets being in denial regarding known and documented side effects, so that is disturbing.

I know nothing can be said to "make things better," or even slightly help. But your sharing helps us. So thank you.

Lucy had a full panel of blood work, and had no history of kidney, or liver disease/problems before being given rimadyl.

so hard to say goodbye, but having to do it so early is just so difficult! She was a beautiful girl and you have such wonderful memories with her. Although her life was short, the time she spent with you was every dogs dream life.

Today marks two years without her.
Not a day goes by that she is not missed.
I have so many wonderful memories of her bouncing through the house. Always happy, and living life to it's fullest.
Till we meet again little Lou, I will carry you in my heart.

She was a beautiful girl for sure. I love the pictures the most when she is active, lots of working muscles and brain cells.
Rimadyl has lots of bad reputation. Like any chemicals there is no way that they can be fully safe, but sometimes we have to take our chances unfortunately whether it is shots, preventives or a medicine needed for treatment.
Looks like Lucy had a great life and never a dull moment.
