Sadly I have to mention that Lucy lost her battle with a long-term illness in the early hours of this morning. After many months of medical treatment attempting to keep her well, she peacefully passed away in Cristina's loving arms.
Lucy was a fighter and I had hoped that her latest relapse of illness would not defeat her. However, she suffered several strokes in her last few days and was unable to walk and her sight was failing. We cared for her these past two years and gave her a loving home. She will be greatly missed by us all and has left this world leaving us fond memories of her, especially her fighting spirit which was immense indeed. I never imagined that I could be so touched, or hurt so much, by the loss of a dog, but Lucy proved me wrong. She became a part of our family and was, after all, daddy's little girlie dog. I will miss her and she will always be in our hearts.
