Lucy – about 2 weeks ago – those are the things Elijah had tossed at him…..Many of you who have been a friend at A Place Called Simplicity for awhile and you have heard some of the stories of our furry or feathery friends. We have a horse named Daisy, (Mistletoe is gone -she’s the one that kicked me this summer), two chickens (DC and Chicken), a rooster named Ezekiel (every morning he proclaims the favorable year of the Lord), a bunch of barn cats (Gimbya, Junior, Bailey, Bruster) and two dogs – Nelly (a Schnauzer) and Lucy (a Black Lab mix).
Lucy is 2 years old and she joined the family from the pound. She was loved by all. When we were in the midst of the kitchen remodel one of the guys working on our house told us, “If you ever decide you don’t want Lucy, I will take her. She is just the sweetest dog.” Of course we loved her to pieces and wouldn’t even ever think of giving her to anyone – fire or not!! She was gentle and kind to Elizabeth and Elijah and Isaiah. Infact, not long after coming home Elijah, who was getting more comfortable with Lucy, was tossing toys at her. She just laid there and looked at him as if to say, “whatever little buddy, whatever.” A few weeks ago Lucy was chasing one of our cats (she loved this game – the cats? Well, ummm, yeah, not so much!). But in the process of chasing the cat she got injured when she fell in the backyard. To make a long story short, the vet put her on some meds. When that didn’t help he decided he would have to open her up. He did this. She did well with the surgery. But when he went to check on her in the morning she was dead. Dw just came up to the hospital where I am still with Graham and told me that Lucy has died. Lucy – our beloved friend, companion and guardian. Lucy was part of our family and we are grieving the loss of our treasured friend.
