Lucky Bear


My heart is broken but I would not trade a minute of the two years I had with you.

I had the privilege of seeing you go from a downtrodden, anxious girl to the proud, confident Akita you were meant to be!

Only animals are capable of unconditional love and you demonstrated that by the love you showed everyone from the minute I found you. You were willing to trust people despite the four years you spent on the streets of Far Rockaway running from cruel people and other dogs!

I’ll never understand why you were taken so soon but perhaps your mission was accomplished–I got to experience unconditional love and you found the home where you were surely loved!!

Daddy and I both miss you, Lucky Bear.
