My old friend Lucy is back for a short stay.
She came into my life as a loving companion at 4 months.
I bought her from a trucker in South Carolina
She was born and raised in a big truck
Lucy and I traveled all over the U. S.
We did multiple runs to Alaska
Lucy was my faithful companion for years
We staved off the loneliness of the road together
Lucy got married in Santa Fe once
She nurtured her pups in the truck
She was a loving dedicated mother
Lucy decided to marry again in Missouri
As Lucy aged it haunted me
I traded her straight across for a 3 # teacup poodle
In Blythe, Cal. who was living in an R. V.
I had a drop in San Diego.
I was heart broken for Lucy
I picked up a load for Florida in L. A.
We rolled back to Blythe and I bought Lucy again
My sister in law labeled me a sicko for selling Lucy
I couldn’t bear the scorn and derision.
My brother told me Cheryl had cried through the night
over my cavalier dog decisions
Yes it was a stupid move
Lucy trained Crystal in trucking according to Lucy’s rules
Lucy had very high standards and expectations for road life
If anything was to be done it was to be done Lucy’s way
We got to Florida. I bumped the dock to unload.
I came back out to leave and as we drove out I was shocked
Crystal was in labor so I pulled over.
Being only 3# it was a tight squeeze.
I ended up pulling pulling these mouse sized pups out
Unfortunately Crystal was a dysfunctional mom
Lucy was in a rage over Crystals poor mothering tech
Lucy licked the pups at birth
She licked them through weening age
I ended up getting a small cage and snubbed Chrystal up
to force her to nurse her pups as Lucy looked on
In intolerance with Chrystal.
Lucy had a bone to pick with little Crystal.
I guess Crystal had tangled up
with with a small chi wow wow without getting permission
What a dog
Now we were a happy family with Lucy leading the pack
Years later I gave Lucy to Cheryl
as she wouldn’t let me forget what a dumb dumb I was
Here she’s staying in my R. V. as I’m baby sitting
Now she’s blind & deaf & crips around banging into things
She mirrors my present condition.
Oh, the most important thing is Lucy is born again
She loved to study God’s Word with me
I can’t wait to be with her in glory as shes left us now
But she’ll always, be deeply missed and affectionately loved
