Why “Got Lucky?”

Sometimes you know instantly a when a good thing has happened and other times it takes awhile to sink in. Some years ago, I received a gift that took a little longer to appreciate. Lucky’s owner was moving and couldn’t take her. What I didn’t know when I agreed to this “present” was that from then on, my life would take a decidedly upward turn. She might have been a breathing hairball, chased cats (and tentatively pawed them to run some more when she cornered one), and pestered me to go for a walk when I’d rather stay on the couch, but she lived up to her name in every way. I was truly fortunate when I “got Lucky.”

Even though she’s gone now and Pepsi-the-mostly-border-collie has stepped up to shoulder the canine load, every time I get to explain what “Got Lucky” means, I can see her trotting out ahead of me on a crisp fall day, dog butt bouncing, as we discover all the wonderful things on our path.
