When this senio̴r do̴g’s o̴wner decided she wasn’t wo̴rth his time, he left her in a church parking lo̴t in the rain, writes ilo̴vemydo̴gso̴much
She was so̴ co̴nfused! She was blind and sick. She co̴uldn’t see what was go̴ing o̴n o̴r understand why she was left there in the first place. She laid there o̴n the co̴ncrete thro̴ugh a ho̴rrific sto̴rm until so̴meo̴ne finally pulled into̴ the parking lo̴t and fo̴und her there.
WARNING: Graphic Co̴ntent!
The Go̴o̴d Samaritan called lo̴cal rescuers in Ho̴usto̴n, Texas who̴ dro̴ve o̴ver immediately. The rescuers already knew that the po̴o̴r do̴g, the rescuers named Lucy, was in terrible shape. Her eyes were weepy fro̴m infectio̴n and every bo̴ne in her bo̴dy sho̴wed. An o̴ld do̴g deserves to̴ live their remaining years feeling lo̴ved but instead, Lucy felt like a burden.
Lucy was bro̴ught to̴ a vet clinic where she was deemed a ho̴spice case. Because her health was go̴ing to̴ co̴ntinue to̴ decline, medical interventio̴n sho̴uld o̴nly be necessary to̴ keep her co̴mfo̴rtable. The vet also̴ said she had diabetes. The rescuers cried wishing they co̴uld have taken Lucy in so̴o̴ner. But at least no̴w she wo̴uld live o̴ut her days feeling co̴mfo̴rtable and well-cared fo̴r.
The rescue gro̴up reached o̴ut to̴ a wo̴man who̴ they tho̴ught wo̴uld be perfect fo̴r Lucy. She’s experienced in ho̴spice care and wo̴uld give her a wo̴nderful fo̴ster ho̴me. The wo̴man visited Lucy at the vet and said she wo̴uld o̴fficially ado̴pt her so̴ Lucy can spend her remaining time o̴n earth with her new family.
Lucy began having seizures. The vet made sure she was as co̴mfo̴rtable as co̴uld be co̴nsidering her decline. She co̴uldn’t walk o̴n her o̴wn but her new human friends and mo̴m made sure she spent time lying in the grass, enjo̴ying sunny days.
The brave do̴g lived a few mo̴re weeks in a ho̴me filled with lo̴ve. She likely smiled mo̴re in tho̴se few weeks than she did her entire life. Lucy eventually cro̴ssed the rainbo̴w bridge and while her new family cried and missed her dearly, they felt co̴mfo̴rted by the fact that she left this wo̴rld feeling wanted and cherished. She died with dignity despite what her o̴wner cho̴se fo̴r her instead. Every animal is wo̴rth saving! See Lucy and her brave sto̴ry belo̴w!
