October is the month of Autumn. The trees are starting to wear red and pink colours and Halloween spook is just around the corner. I love this season, running wild in the crunching leafs and playing trick or treat with mommy and daddy. (I always choose treat, naturally)
But Autumn is also the time, when the sun shines less bright, days are shorter and the overall mood seems less sparkly. At least in the hooman world.
That’s why I like to tell you the story of Lucky and his mommy Ruth today, because listen up hoomans. With a fur-child around, Autumn and Winter will be feeling like Summer. We are the sunshine of your life.
WOOOOOF, your Cooka
In the early February of 2019, I was diagnosed with the beginning of depression and this was the time my Lucky appeared. (February 24, 2019. It was a normal day at the pet store where I worked and all of a sudden a lady appeared with a dog in her lap, a little skinny dog, with a lot of hair and a big wound, and so so hungry… The woman had found him, abandoned, on the highway. He was disoriented in the middle of all the cars and at risk of being run-over. I looked at him and it was love at first sight, as I felt that he had fallen from the heavens, appearing to me today, February 24 – because 24 it’s my lucky number and it just couldn’t be a coincidence I thought. Without thinking twice I took him into my arms and brought him to my house where I bathed him, fed him, gave him comfort, everything that was best for him to feel as comfortable as possible.
I named him Lucky, because today was my lucky day and Lucky would change my world forever.
Next I took him to the veterinarian where we made sure he is healthy and then, just like that, Lucky was my child. Without doubt, this was the best thing that happened to me in my life. I always believe that nothing happens by chance, it wasn’t only me who saved him, he save me! He helped in my treatment for depression and deep down we saved each other.
Lucky changed my life and helped me in every way and I’m so very grateful to him. I usually say it’s my son because I treat him as such. We have an unconditional love for each other and honestly I no longer know how to live without him.
With Love, your Ruth and Lucky
