3 years, No Luck. Inmate #98841. Red Sports Coupe. And some Easter Eggs

Inmate number 98841. Studio1923 / Jerome Braga Or “Spencer” as the Humane Society had named him.

He was my best bud for over 9 years, and today marks the 3rd anniversary of sending him off to a happier, pain free place.   It took me a couple weeks to name him, but finally settled in on “Lucky”.   Here is a photo of him probably around 9 weeks old, (the same week I got him)

Those of you who follow my blog, and have for a while know how much we cared about him here.  If you are totally bored you can click here and see the post from Last St Patrick’s day for his Birthday blog post. Or you can read the heartbreaking post from his “Last Day” Here. Or the equally gut wrenching story of or “D” day. (D for Decision Day)

If you would rather not shed any tears… just look below and check out some of the great memories life has brought us today during our Easter Celebrations.   🙂  Studio1923 / Jerome Braga

Notice the two candies RIGHT ON TOP OF THE LIGHTS.   The kids took 5 minutes to find them all while they were standing right over them.

Lucky was an amazing dog. Three years goes by so quickly.

A good memory was Lucky’s mailman video… and then there was the time when you confronted the guy from spraying lucky with mace when we ran into him out one night….
