Lucky was not my dog. I only learned of him through the New York City Animal Care & Control site when he was posted on Facebook as being at risk for euthanasia. I fell in love with him right away--his sweet expression, so hopeful of being adopted and taken home. His owner had been arrested and Lucky was seized and taken to the NYC ACC. He was ill while there and remained there for two weeks before he was murdered. He is listed in the Gone Dogs album for 9/24/16 in the NYC ACC website. |
He deserved to live out his life in full, as he was only seven years old when he died. So many people cried and were distraught when they learned of his murder. I hope they will find peace someday, but I am not sure if I ever will. There was just something about Lucky. I would have gladly taken him if I could have, but I am so far away from New York. Lucky's death has caused me to lose what faith I had. I really didn't know him personally, but I am so sure he would have been so easy to love. I just wish so much that he could have been rescued in time before he was taken away. If anyone wants to read more about him or see his photos, the NYC ACC Manhattan still had his story in the Gone dogs section for September 24, 2016. Every time I think of a date I always think, what was Lucky doing on this date a year ago?
I know I will never forget him. I feel even though he died at the hands of uncaring people, he definitely deserves a memorial and that is why I am putting this memorial in the Rainbows Bridge. Thanks so much to Ginny for her care and compassion for setting up the Rainbows Bridge memorial for pets.
