Oh my, this is precious! I love a good animal story, and this one didn't disappoint.

You shared some wisdom about owning a dog, or any pet, as well.

The ending is adorable. Two thumbs up.
Three words: I LOVE IT!
Once you lay eyes on them, they climb into your heart. Very well done.
Very, very clever and well written. This not only pulls on the heart strings, but delivers a powerful lesson as well. Great job, indeed!
Sweet story, and really great ending! Made me smile.
We all love Luci. Cute story.
OK, I think I've chosen my favorite "tug-at-your-heart-strings" story! Being an almost rabid (no pun intended) dog lover myself, and having lost my little Yorkie last year, I could absolutely relate to everything in this story. And of course, I also said I would never go through another heartbreak again. Yet here I am, new mother to a five year old big lug-of-a-golden retriever who needed a home. You did a great job communicating the pain & gain of loving a dog. I do hope you place with this entry, and by all means - keep writing!
