Many years ago, a lady acquired a young Husky-chow. They very quickly bonded. The lady has MS and spends her time in an electric wheelchair. Lucky learned to watch his feet as he accompanied his lady on walks.

One day the lady had to go the corner market and left Lucky chained in the backyard. As she wheeled along the sidewalk, a mean dog attacked her, biting and tried to drag her out of her chair. Lucky saw this and went berserk. He broke his chain and went to protect his lady. He attacked the dog and drove it off. He received lots of loving and from then on, he made it his business to take care of his lady.

When he gets to come in the house, he sniffs all over the lady, unerringly licking a sore shoulder or other body part not up to par. Then he lies on the bed with her and they both take a nap. With that protection, then Papa can leave to run errands.
Sometimes the lady feels too bad to go outside with her son to play with Lucky. Then she sits at the window and speaks to him. He will play awhile and then come to the window and they will speak to each other and then Lucky will go back to playing satisfied his lady is ok.

A few times the lady has had an attack of her illness and had to call the ambulance. Each time Lucky knows she is ill and breaks his chain and tries to get in the ambulance with her. The family has to hold him close and reassure him. When the lady comes home Lucky comes in and spends the evening with her, letting everyone know he is on the job protecting her.
Lucky is old now and the vet says he hasn't long to live. But that is ok; the lady doesn't have long to live, either. I don't know which one will go first; but the other won't be far behind. Their love is such that neither could continue alone. I truly believe this dog was sent by Heaven to take care of this special lady. No matter how ill she is she is always thinking of others and providing help and inspiration.

P.S. I'm getting almost afraid to open the NG these days. Buckets of tears shed the past couple weeks for so many.

What a lovely, touching and bittersweet story. It made me cry.

It also brought back memories of Smokey...a cat I had when I was a child. He was just as devoted as Lucky and would walk me to the bus in the morning and be waiting for me upon my return.
Best wishes for Lucky and his lady. And thank you for posting this.
Hugs,

I do hope they stay together for a very long time, despite what the doctors and vets say,

Some pets are very special in their devotion to their people. I am glad you had Smokey. But there are many on this ng that are special that way.

The lady just spent the weekend in the hospital again. Her family are all hoping she and Lucky make it through Christmas.
