Lucky's last day...

Dogs are such a wonderful part of our lives. It seems such a tragic, stupid thing that their timelines are not the same as ours.

This morning, we had to say goodbye to Lucky.  Lucky whose favorite thing on the planet was "dog cookies." (And we let her have as many as she wanted yesterday.)

And while a vet comforted me once by sharing that "age and illness aren't scary for dogs because they don't contemplate their own mortality" the physical suffering aspect isn't as easily dismissed.

I deeply believe in heaven for animals. (And if you aren't on board with that, note that CS Lewis did too.)  It makes me smile to think of her being able to run again, and maybe hanging out with Casey and Toby.  Oh yeah, and my guess is that there is a serious supply of dog cookies.
