Oh, so sorry to hear this. I know it hurts you just as if she had stayed with you the entire time. Actually, a part of her did stay with you and always will. Blessings to you....

Oh my gosh...I remember Lucy! I thought how lucky she was to have such special people in her life! I'm so sorry you've lost her! It is always such a blow no matter when or how. Hugs!

I went back and read some of the earliest posts about Lucy and how you all rallied to save her. Sounds like she had 5 terrific years. I'm so sorry for your loss

Oh, Rick! I'm so sorry to hear that Lucy has passed away. Please, if you are in touch with Dr. Dave and Connie, extend my most sincere sympathy to them on the loss of their beautiful Lucy girl and thank them again, so much, for being Lucy's true Mom and Dad.

I have thought about Lucy so often over the years and I will always be so grateful and happy that Lucy had 5 wonderful years with Dr. Dave and Connie, being a pampered and very much loved member of their family. It took an online village to rescue Lucy and one very special foster Dad (you!) to keep her safe until her forever home with Dr. Dave and Connie could be found. I know that none of us will ever forget her and that Lucy will be safe now, in our hearts, forever.

I'm kind of a basket case right now. She was only with me for four months but she was such a special girl. I feel so blessed to have known her. She was one of those dogs that comes along once in a lifetime but only if you are really, really lucky.

Thanks to her Syndicate and Dr. David & Connie she had 5 wonderful years of love and devotion she probably wouldn't have had.

Dr. David sent this...



Rest in Peace, sweet girl.

I'm so sorry to read of the loss of Lucy. I did not get in on the beginning of her story with you, but caught up several years ago. These little ones really work their way into your heart.

She was fortunate to have the extra years, and you to have known her. RIP, Lucy dear, and we will see you at the Bridge.

Mary

Today is the first anniversary of Lucy going to the Bridge.

Got a nice email from David & Connie today. Lucy is never far from my thoughts.

Aw... Lucy was and still is special to me.

Did Dr. Dave and Connie adopt another dog since then? They are wonderful caregivers.
