Our beautiful staffy x kelpie, Lucy, has gone to heaven. 

She was 13 1/2.

Last week she was playing with the puppy and cried out in pain.

We took her to the vet, who felt Lucy had broken her leg. 

Lucy was sedated for X-ray and bone cancer was discovered. 

Because they didn't want her to wake up to the pain of a broken leg, we had to say goodbye to her while she was sedated.

The kids don't remember not having Lucy.

She was a sweet girl, who was always there for us all.

Sadness just doesn't quite cover it.

Oh Janelle I am so sorry for your loss! RIP Lucy. I hope the other fur babies in your family can offer all of you some inner peace. 🙏🏼❤️

Oh so sad for you Janelle, so hard to lose a fur baby who has become a true member of the family. The pup will grieve too. When we lost our little dog many years ago our neighbour's dog used to sit on our verandah and howl like a banshee. I felt like joining her. It took weeks for her to get over it.

Thank you so much ladies.

I think the suddenness of it all is what shocked us all.

Riley, the puppy, is grieving terribly. I had to hand feed her her dinner tonight. 

We also have her sleeping inside now.

The pets have been great, they understand our sadness.

My eyes are still sore from crying.

Riley is eating by herself again,  thank goodness. 

She's still sleeping in her basket next to my side of the bed.  I think we both love that!


We have discovered life without Lucy is possible, different, but possible.
