Hasta Luego Lucas!

Well… I was driving to work this morning and I got a call that Lucas’ Dad was going to pick him up tonight and take him home… cutting short our month by almost a week. He was supposed to travel for work this week but it was canceled and so… today was the last day.

It was so unexpected!

I took both boys for our three mile jaunt this morning unaware that this was the last time with the “pack”… had I known i think i would have revelled in it more. I just got so sad with this news…

See I knew that Lucas’ Dad was coming for dinner tonight but I thought he was just checking in before leaving again on the next trip. He was just in Argentina with his family for two and a half weeks and then was supposed to go on business to Costa Rica… but Costa Rica got canceled and he was home alone in a great big quiet house… and missed his dog… who can blame him? And so that cuts short our time with the burly polar bear…

So after delicious homemade veggie lasagna and wine and stories of wonderful Argentina (waterfalls and snow and mountains and food galore) … I said goodbye to Lucas… and so did Oscar. Oscar whined and whined at the door when Lucas left … not understanding the magnitude. And now he is pacing and barking and whining and generally sad…

It makes me want to get another dog. I LOVED having two… loved it. I would have six if I had the room… all rescues…

Anyway… it is a sad night in our home… we miss the big polar bear who would stay wet all day after a dip in the pool… who was a lumbering sweet boy and who was Oscar’s best bud for almost a month…

Cheers Lucas… until later my friend!
