goodbye to our little lucy
i wanted to let everyone know that last night our wonderful and very loved dog, lucy, died. she ran away from the bus while i was inside a building when someone accidentally let her out. she was an incredibly fast runner, no one could catch her and she was hit by a car. chris and i are devastated. we spent every day with her and feel a deep hole in our lives. we miss her so much already. i wish i could cuddle her and make her feel safe.
when someone dies it's appropriate for things to stop for a while but that doesn't feel appropriate when a pet dies, like we're being overemotional or something... but i want everything to stop.
if you knew her you know that she was such a frightened little thing. in the last year of her living with us she calmed so much and, i believe, she felt safe and loved. i'm thankful for that but i'm even more angry with the people who abused her before she came to us. they made her scared. which is why she ran. i hate so much knowing that she was afraid in the last minutes of her life. i don't know what to do with that.
the tour must go on. but we steal moments of tears and sadness when we can.
more pictures to come.
