14 years of unconditional love and making mine and Emily's house a HOME. She was the queen of the world... at least my world! She lived a long, happy and healthy life until a few months ago and a tumor emerged and her heart enlarged 3 times the normal size and she was let go on July 18th. Miss Lucy came from the S.P.C.A. and is one of the greatest blessings in my life. She will live in my heart forever. Pets are such precious beings.. I am so blessed to have had Miss Lucy in my family. It was an honor to love and care for her all these years.
I love you my Lucy dog... you ARE the queen of the world!
Xo,
Debrina

So sorry to hear about Miss Lucy. We have had many dogs over the years and we, too have faced this. We have one sweet dog right now - Sassy. She is old, blind, and diabetic (needing insulin shots 2 times daily). When it's her time, if God doesn't call her up, we will set her free. Not easy, but my husband always says - he believes when we get to heaven - all of our pets will be there to greet us. :) Best wishes for you. I know you will somehow use this to inspire your art.

Debrina I am so sorry to hear this news about your precious Lucy. Although we don't know each other very well yet I too have had many furry friends share my home and each loss takes a piece of my heart so I understand what a empty spot this leaves in your home.
She will be waiting for you whole and healthy when you rejoin her someday and I believe she will continue to watch over you and your family until then.
Take care...

I am so sorry for your loss. In the last two years we had to say good-bye to our boxer girl Hannah and boxer boy Kodak. They live on in our hearts and I KNOW we will be reunited one day as you will with your sweet Miss Lucy.

((Hugs))

I am so sorry for your loss. We are so blessed to be able to have our pets in our lives for the time that we do and it is so hard when the time comes to let them go. She was blessed, as were you, to have each other in your lives. I hope that your wonderful memories of Miss Lucy help ease the pain you are feeling right now. xxx

Having lost such precious family members myself, I know how sorrowful this must be. It's wonderful you gave Lucy a loving home for her fourteen years, and all the joy she provided you and your family. My thoughts are with you.

My thoughts are with you. I have had dogs all my life and of course have had to say good-bye to a few, I know all animals go to a lovely place because they are such lovely creatures. Miss Lucy is a beauty.

What a sweet photo and tribute to one so special! I have said goodbye to a few treasured fuzzy friends and it never gets easier. I love the way they fill our lives and add such a special joy! Sounds like you all had a good life together!

Debrina, so sorry to hear of your loss. We lost my father on July 7th and on July 17th, an unexpected puppy found his way into our life and into our hearts. Pets are a gift from God, no doubt about it. May memories of your dog remain in your heart and bring you comfort.

jerseytjej said...

That was a lovely tribute to your Miss Lucy. Dogs provide unconditional love and protection to their owners and gain so much more from them in return. I lost my wonderful dog in May and still feel the loss every day.

David said...

I'm sorry about your dog, I too have suffered from the same loss before.

DeBRiNa PRaTT said...

It brings tears to my eyes to read this, as I had the same thing happen to my beloved cat, Smoat, last October. Same thing. It was so very heartbreaking, and although almost a year has passed, he is missed beyond measure. THanks for sharing your story with us, Debrina.

Hope the healing is coming now that Lucy is a angel and no longer in the form of a dog. Art Heals I have discovered! Are you creating? how is it going? Much blog love to you

We're so sorry to hear this... we're always here to support you.

Debrina,
I have a lump in my throat as I write this. God bless you and your precious Lucy, may you find peace knowing she is in Heaven with all of God's other beautiful children.

"For He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways." Psalms 91:11

I believe our pets are some of those angels. My deepest sympathy. Sincerely, Jude

Sarah said...

Debrina I am so sorry to hear about Miss Lucy. I let my Dusty go last April & he was my s.p.c.a. angel. he got me through so much and I thought my heart might explode but I know the kindness and love he gave me was worth the gentlest goodbye. You have my heartfelt sympathy. I miss him every day.
