we would have had lucy 6 years this year…
she was a stinkpot.
always stepping ON your feet with her dirty wet paws.
always digging in the trash.
always chewing on things.
always begging to get inside during a thunderstorm making a muddy mess everywhere she frantically went.
always there to greet us.
always right there when we were working outside to be underfoot.
always ready to play with the kids and ‘babysit’ for me.
always there to receive our lovin’.
i’ve been avoiding this little blog for 2 weeks (prior to that, i was just too busy to blog…) because of not being able to type this next line.
august 20th, 2011 we pulled out to go visit our friends in Illinois. we were unaware at the time, but lucy followed us on the hwy, about a half mile (i’m guessing) and was hit by cars and continually hit by cars until someone pulled her off of the hwy on sunday right before we got home…
witnesses have told us it was horrendous, surely a calf… we can tell. by the stains on the highway and what is not left of our lucy.
we found peace after finding enough of her to bury her.
lizzie is doing well with it — daddy and mommy are struggling…
lizzie says things like, *placing wild flowers on lucy’s grave* – “there now she will feel happy again and jump out of the dirt and come play with us!”
we are getting there. one step at a time – we will always miss our lucy.
