Love & Lose Forever Intertwined

87.Lucky's throne

A painting I did of Lucky about 10 years ago in her prime

Lucky, my sweet old dog of 15 plus years died Friday and my heart is has cracked open…again. I thought maybe this loss would be easier but its not really. When you love someone, even a little dog, the bargain you make going in is that it will end one way or another and there will be heart break. But the sadness doesn’t mean the love wasn’t worth the loss. It is. Love is worth the loss.

Rest in peace little friend I’m so glad I got to be your companion human. You taught me about being in the moment, that sometimes sniffing around where you’re not supposed to can bring unexpected treasure, that wagging is always better than barking, and most of all how to love unconditionally.

Lisa and Lucky

    Oh sweet old Lucky! I know how sad it is. You gave her a wonderful life and she loved you all so well. I hope it was a peaceful death. Love you.

    Dear Lisa, your Lucky so reminds me of my Chloe. Chloe was five time the size of Lucky, but they could have been sisters. Sweet, sweet pets. I love them all. Hugs from afar.

    Oh, Lisa, our first dinner in the Webb courtyard for WiOT won’t be the same without that nose leading a black and white dog behind it, industriously checking each pair or legs for food droppings and Laurie insisting “Don’t feed the dog!” And I never did because I loved Lucky so much.
