We may not be together
In the way we used to be;
We are still connected by a
Cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me
We’re never far apart
If you look beyond the horizon
And listen with your heart.

Lucky was one of a kind, short little corgi legs, big golden retriever body and a thick coat of chow hair. For reasons I will never comprehend but am thankful for, he was left at a shelter at about age 3 and a half. From the photo on pet finders.com, I was expecting a small corgi size dog, instead, he was about 50 pounds of love and energy. When I met him, he was with a foster family and he came bounding out and sat on my feet. I knew he had chosen me and despite not being prepared that day to take him home, I did. Instantly, we fit perfectly into each other’s lives. He was loving, independent, projective, sweet, gentle, talkative, happy and loved exploring his park. The nearly 12 years we had together were filled with adventures that I will always cherish. Letting him go was the hardest thing I have ever done and I am so grateful to Dr. Kelly Knoll and Caring Pathways for making the end of my time with him as beautiful, loving and gentle as it possibly could have been. He is a part of my heart and I know I was the lucky one.
