I have not been able to post here because I didn't think I could come up with enough words to describe Lucky. My class is watching "Because of Winn Dixie" and the girls just said "Winn Dixie is a dog who knows how to be a friend". I think that sums up Lucky perfectly.

I haven't seen Winn Dixie. Have heard a lot about Lucky from you though and know how much Lucky meant to you. Sounds like an amazing dog.

In Memory of my first dog that I could call my own. Black 'Bart' the Pirate.

Man, these really are hard to post. Already tearing up.
Bart was an amazing dog. I wish I had more photos to share but they were lost when I moved to California.

I remember him as a pup - the most playful thing. Always looking for attention when he wasn't busy chasing butterflies or the drifting cottonwood seeds. He was the biggest in his litter and grew up fast. Went from being a cute little chubby black pup to a handsome boy before we knew it.

I remember taking him on long walks to the high school where he'd be in heaven collecting all the left over tennis and baseballs. Then splash around in the creek to cool off. I was always proud to show him off to friends and anyone that happened to be there. He was so friendly, strong, and the best looking Black Labrador.

I remember our camping trips. And how I'd always felt safe with him around. When something threatened he'd puff up like a grizzly bear. Nothing in it's right mind would challenge Bart. He was my protector and I was his. It was a good partnership. And our bond grew and grew.

I remember how he slowly grew old. And got tired - but still tried to do the things he always loved. I remember how scared I was the first few times I took take him to the vet because he couldn't get up. And carrying him outside to go potty. And the day he was ready to go. I took him to the vet and was told his time here on Earth had come to an end. I walked outside, sat on the steps and silently cried. A little boy saw me and walked up and offered me his toy truck. He could see I was hurting. I had never lost anything I'd loved so much and wasn't prepared for it.

I remember Bart as a best friend. And I'll never forget him.

As wonderful as BC's are, Black Labs are such special, loving dogs. He looks like he was a real handsome dog. You nearly made me cry!

These were all so sweet, they really made the tears come. I still have my very first dog Gabby who's 12 this year, I don't like to think about how much she has slowed down or how many little heath problems she has. Instead I think about how happy she still is every time I come home, even from the shortest trip! Now that she's older she won't play ball but she sure loves to eat! She still makes me as happy every time I see her, she's my best, most loyal friend and I love her with all my heart !
