A local radio station is doing a campaign for our local SPCA. The DJ asked listeners to think just what their pet means to them. It got me thinking about my little Lucky.
I fell in love with Lucky at first sight. It was January 2005 and I had moved to Las Vegas to pursue my teaching career that past summer after graduating college. I was living by myself and pretty much on my own. One evening I went to one of the local malls and stopped into the pet shop. There was a little tiny Westie there. She was born November 9, 2004 and just ready to go home. I had to pick her up and hold her. Once she snuggled up with me, I knew that she had chosen me to go home with.
Lucky is the most loving dog I know. She is playful and fun. She can make you laugh and make a rough day so much better. She can sense when something is wrong and just sit with your to make things better. I am grateful for having her in my life. She is a part of our family and will be for the rest of our lives.
