Today I lost the streak of Luck which has orbited my life like a second moon for the last 10 years. (She had just finished doing my taxes, photo above. Bless her soul.)
My Lucky Dawg – who showed up on a cold winter night in 2007 – left us today, but she created hundreds of good memories and a warm feeling that will remain with me forever. I think Teddy, Cajun and Tubby (my other meaningful departed furry friends were waiting to welcome her at the end of the “Rainbow Bridge” as she crossed over. Her human mother (me) could be heard in the background begging for her to come back.
It was time and her job on Earth was complete. I have made peace with her passing but my Boston terrier Rebel Dawg, and P. Diddy, the stray cat, are confused. They wander around looking for their sister who also ruled the roost, if truth be known. She was queen and we were her humble subjects.
Rest in Peace Lucky Girl. You tried to show me how to live life in the moment but I never could get the hang of it. You also gave me unconditional love that is rare in this world.
