our lucy 8.20.11

Posted: 09/03/2011 in lucy

we would have had lucy 6 years this year…

she was a stinkpot.

always underfoot.

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 digging.

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’.

always there.


the best picture of lucy - showing her personality! πŸ™‚


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.
*deep sigh*

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.

    I will remember her as always jumping, jumping! Wonderful photos Breanna and you’ll be glad you wrote this post even though it was hard!

    I’ve been going to write for quite a while. The unconditional love of a pet!! Beautiful memorial to your Lucy… so sorry for your loss. She did all the things that dogs do, and was loved by all of you, and she loved all of you.

  3. Tim Sparks says:

    Makes me teary eyed reading this. She was a good dog! I am glad you have good pictures of her to remember.

    I’m really sorry for your loss! It’s amazing how an animal can be such a huge part of our family and even more amazing how their absence can create such a hole in our hearts. We had to put our sweet lab of 11 years to sleep last summer. We cried and cried. Words couldn’t describe our hurt. A few months ago we made the decision to get another dog and though she didn’t “replace” our other dog she now has her own place in our hearts and lives and we love her dearly! I’ll keep you all in prayer and one day I pray you get another furry friend for your family to love and enjoy! Hugs!

    Sorry to hear about this. Just know that she was loved by your family and has great memories with you guys too. Animals are so dear to my heart, so I completely understand the devastation.
