In Memory

Lucky Charm, June 6, 1999 - April 8, 2009

This is Lucky with his twin persons on joining the family ten years ago. He was a soft coated wheaten terrier, a breed I recommended to my friend Karen for Steven and Emily. Wheatons are a medium sized dog, sturdy enough for play, but not too big. Wheatons were bred to do it all: hunt varmints, herd, guard the homestead, and provide companionship. Not much herding or varmint hunting to do in the Seattle burbs, but plenty of companionship provided.

Regrettably, Lucky was humanely euthanized on Wednesday because of a terminal health issue. He will be sorely missed.

They say dogs leave pawprints on our hearts. I know this to be true.

Good dog, Lucky.
