Lucy


I watched her die
For two years
Knowing -- knowing
That it was cancer
I was told
Two years ago
She has watched me
Grow and learn
Been there
Understood
Happy to see me
Rarely complaining
A smile on her face
And happiness
We tried surgery
Finally in the end
We tried no more
And let her die
In my arms.
She has been my companion
For 12 years
Just been there

She was my loving dog, who cared for me.

Lucy RIP 8/1/2013

In the end the cancer got her.  It was sad. She was lovely dog, happy and good to look after. Well trained and friendly to humans and other dogs.

OMG, I'm so sorry. But she died in her sleep, which I think is the best.

RIP, Lucy.

We had an older dog that we put to sleep. Lucy, died in her sleep. We knew she might.

And now I'm crying :( That's so beautiful and sweet and sad. My dog (Her name was Cookie) had a stroke and then got sick, but it was practically the same. I knew she was going slowly. :(
I'm sorry for your loss. :iconsadhugplz: If you need to talk I'm here

I got her ashes today - it is sad. i did not realised a dog could care you know. More than a lot of humans in my life. It is sad. They sit there and be faithful companion. The guy that dropped ashes off was lovely. She was lovely dog and will be sadly missed by this family. She did nothing wrong by me - not like many humans in my life. She never bit or hurt others. She trained herself. It is sad. She would not have understood me - I always stood up for her. She was lovely dog and I wish many who read this poem would understand that. SHe was waiting for me until the end. I hope she watches over me now. Sorry for the long message - it is sad because i got her ashes.

I know what you mean. My cat's ashes are in the livingroom because my sister couldn't bear to have her burried :( It's always sad when a member of the family or someone close to you passes away.

Aw. Poor Lucy. My dog Sunny had been my companion for 12 years too, but he was fifteen when (no, sixteen,,, I think) when we had to put him down. :hug: At least our dogs had a good life.

She died in her sleep last night. I was there for her last breaths. She is gone now. It has been very sad day for all the family.

:hug: I'm so sorry for your loss. We just lost one of our dogs to cancer right before Christmas - he was also 12 years old. One of our kitties was also lost in December - he was 19. December was a hard month... :( It's always terrible to lose family members.

Sorry for your loss.
It's never easy losing a member of the family, no matter what species they are.

The bond between dogs and man is quite beautiful. May she live on in your heart, for that is the best way to honor her memory. My condolences. :(

Lost her last night. She had been ill for a long time - and she is gone now after being a wonderful dog for 12 years. One of the best. She was a Staffy.
