I don’t really have any words but I have to say something anyway
Luke, our 12 year old dog, passed away today.
Luke had this habit of always walking right in front of me when I was in a hurry and It drove me absolutely crazy when he did this. Especially when I was 9 months pregnant and had to pee… And his hair covered everything. And he barked when he thought there might be somebody walking down our street. Even in the middle of the night – waking me up out of a peaceful sleep and seriously freaking me out.
Luke was fiercely loyal and always warned us of nearby strangers. I am absolutely sure he would have done what he had to to protect our family from an intruder. He was obedient, coming when he was called. He played fetch, caught popcorn in the air, and loved a good belly rub. He never held one thing against us.
I didn’t realize how attached I was to Luke until today. Until he was gone.
Today was a surprisingly hard day.
