In memory of Lucy

Today was a bit of a sad day at our house. Cody went away pig shooting for the weekend, as he often does, and today his long time hunting companion, a lovely dog called Lucy (above) had some type of fit after pursuing a pig. Cody and his hunting mate Ryan managed to get Lucy to a vet who just happened to be at one of the High country farms. Alas, as the vet was tying up his horse Lucy very sadly took her last breath. Lucy was not our dog, but belongs to another pig hunter friend who kindly allows Cody to take her out hunting with him, that is even worse isn't it! Lucy has stayed many weekends with us over the past few years and won our hearts as she was a big tough dog with a heart of gold, and you just could not but help fall in love with her.
Bye bye Lucy.

Oh how sad is this! :-(((
I`m moved to tears because of Lucys sudden death.
And yet, she had a beautiful life and friends who loved her - and she will not be forgotten!
Consoling hugs, Renate

Hugs back Renate, thankyou for your kind thoughts and words.Lucy's owner said that she has had a similar fit before, so maybe she had a dodgie heart or something? It remains a mystery, at least she died in the hills, doing what she loved I guess. Thats what I am telling myself to make it all seem not so bad!... no- it's not really helping!
Thanks again.

Annasmama said...

We can only take comfort from the fact that she did not suffer pain. Cold comfort, I know..........
Hugs, Renate

I'm so sorry! It's so hard to loose a beloved pet...even though she was a "borrowed" one. This past fall I lost my Jack Russell Dash to a hard to take. Hugs to you!

So sad for you & her owner. She looks like one tough cookie!! Do you know what kind of dog she was? I have never seen a dog that looked like her before.

Sonya said...

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
