Lucky the Labrador and lessons I've learned March 25, 2017

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” —Roger Caras (photographer and writer)

The following is my first Spark Page story and a tribute to my dog who inspires me to be a better person and live life to its fullest.

Getting Lucky.

This is the first day I met Lucky and brought him home. He was 5 months old and from Gardnerville, Nevada. He is the son of Vader Fredrickson. I got this sweet dog in December of 2009..

First beach day...

Lucky's first day at the beach happened soon after I got him. He wasn't sure about it, and now lives for beach days (among other things). Lesson: Aways be willing to visit new places and see new things.... You might love it!

Snow and good friends.

Lucky also took to the snow and likes lots of it. He loves the snow and dog friends who love snow. He's up for any adventure.

Back packing and swimming in alpine lakes. Laura Lake, July 2015,

He is not so much a fan of the backpack, but tolerates it because he loves the adventure of backpacking and swimming in every lake he can on the journey. Lesson: Carry the load. Put in the work. Work is always worth it. The more you are willing to help, suit up and show up, be willing, carry your weight, put in effort without complaining, the more you will receive. It might be a hard climb, but it will be worth it. Don't stop at the first lake because you don't know what lakes lie ahead.

Furry friends.

Lucky has many friends and is very friendly and these are 2 of his best beach friends.

All days at the beach are "best days ever."

Lucky loves all things outside and playful, but the beach is his favorite. He loves the beach!

Lucky charges into water... All water, but pools are another huge favorite.
Kitchen face, beach face, working face, bored face, in your face...
4 toys to greet you face. I love his face.

Lucky gives daily and is family and is an inspiration in so many ways. Thank you Lucky. Lesson: Always greet your loved ones with a smile (or treats or toys). Also, the best cure for a bad mood, or hard day is to laugh and don't be too serious.
