    GREAT DOG STORY

    Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.

    Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favourite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

    It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease.... in fact, she was just sure it was fatal. She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders.

    The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her... what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him. The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.

    The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalised for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.

    Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap.

    Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed. When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realised the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favourite things in life. He had covered her with his love.

    Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day.

    It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky? He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but..................................... Mary remains his greatest treasure.

    Remember... live every day to the fullest. And never forget... the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones who care for us.
     
  2. Nice story - wonder if it's true.

    SF
     
  3. I like to think it is and even if not a message for all to consider whether for each other or mans' best friend
     
  4. Isn't it at this point that we are now supposed to send this to 10 people from our contacts list just to show them how much we love them too. Now let me see who's on my contact list...aha, here we are. The Joss, the 1st Lt, Skipper, my DO....
     
  5. That's just the sort of idiot type things that dogs do, though.
     
  6. The only thing my cat (Nelson by name) brings me is bloody dead mice - now what do you think he is trying to tell me?
     
  7. Please forgive me for writing "dogs do"; even without the apostrophe, it still reads that way. As many of you will realise, I normally try very hard not to write dogs do.
     
  8. Nine out of ten cats prefer dead mice to Whiskas?
     
  9. Hobbit, what made you post that?? Asking sincerely...Pints xx
     
  10. Just proves why dogs are great. What would a cat do for you? Sit there and look at you as though you a piece of S**t
     
  11. You cant beat a Dog for laughs!
