Lucy - Update

I regret to inform you of the passing of the late Lucy K., dog and beloved friend of my aunt, uncle and cousins. After weighing the options and considering the compliacted surgery, she was put to sleep for the last time this morning at ten.

My youngest, home with me and trying to get over Pneumonia, took the news as bravely as possible under the circumstances. We both cried for half an hour. In fact we're still sniffling. The boys will find out when they get home from school. And we will all mourn together on Shabbos when we join my aunt and uncle at their house.

Lucy will be missed.

it's really really sad. We just lost muti and I couldn't believe how much I cried. I think illness to death goes very very quickly in dogs. I'm sorry about Lucy.
