My Word Press avatar is a photo of my Chocolate Labrador Retriever, Jean- Lucca Raffiki. I have become quite fond of writing recently, and it is through this medium that I will grieve his loss. This morning, I had to make the most difficult decision of my adult life. I had to have “my Lucca” euthanized. I won’t go into detail about why I had to make that decision, but I will say that it was the only choice I had.
For the next few days I will share memories through poetry, comments, short stories and posts in general. I hope this helps me, you and anyone else grieving the loss of the type of companion I found in my big guy.
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!

Thank you so much! You have no idea how much your kind gesture has helped me this evening! Lucca was a very special “guy” and he was loved beyond measure!
So sorry for your loss, rest well Lucca, knowing that you are loved and missed.
