Lucy was a darling puppy, she would be desperate to please you and always was gentle from the minute we got her. On Feb 9th, 2009 I took Lucy in to our vet to be spayed. I was late for work and I went to drop her off early and didnt really say goodbye.
I was sitting at my desk at work when my cell phone rang. It was the vet. I didnt think anything of it because they had called me when my older dog had been spayed. However I knew something was wrong. The vet was choked up and said that she had started to seize and that they had given her medication. She had died. I was crushed. I did not expect my 6 month old puppy to die having routine surgery. The vet cried on the phone with me. I stayed all day at work not being able to concentrate thinking how quiet it would be at home. I got home to see my older dog and all the puppy toys everywhere. The vet came round to my house to see f I was ok. She was an angel.
There was a happy ending to this story!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. We got a second puppy. It was strange she is the same color and has the same gentle nature. Lucy is missed everyday. Molly filled the huge hole that had been left. Life has a funny way of making things right again!
