These eyes did a lot of talking. These eyes called me out on my own bs. When I spoke to her she seemed to understand. She knew what….
I really do believe the word love has been hijacked. Love means so much more to me than how our culture uses the word. Like the 5 love……
The thing I miss the most about Lucy is…
I really wrote a book about my dog. Like most books, I am writing it over, and have been inspired to write it in her voice, not mine. I am amazed
I salute all of you who take on the responsibility of dog ownership. I have great respect for what you do to provide for them. I have great respect for the love you have for them. May God continue to bless you with the love and resources to provide great lives for your dogs.
On the second day I had Lucy I took this picture. She was studying my every move. Analyzing me like Jack Russells do. Their mind works continuously. They have to be on task. Everyone has an idea of what heaven is like……..
I had a guy tell me a long time ago that if you came to the end of your life and had one true friend, then you were lucky. I did not believe him. I thought I would have a bunch. I don’t have a bunch. So my encouragement
Lucy would give her best effort to win someone over, but eventually, she would just let them be. She was a great comforter, but some people don’t want to be comforted, they just want to be mad. Gotta move on from those people.
It was one year ago today that I was told Lucy’s kidneys had, in my words, failed. I was devastated. Even though I knew this day was coming, I did not know how I would react. I even used to tell people that if I thought she would be taken care of, I would rather go first. I did not know how I would react to it. In Victor Frankl’s book, Man’s Search for Meaning, he spoke often of love, and how it transcends the physical. The love I have for Lucy transcends many planes of thought, and I know she loved and knew me the same way.
The book isn’t so much about the best dog in the world as it is about commitment, failure, hope, overcoming, and the willingness to do whatever we can to be there for our loved ones, and those that love us. It is about looking at our human frailties ….
