Bulldog friends, I think it is important that you know everything about me. My name is Lucky and I just turned a year old. I was born with a cleft palate which is a birth defect. For some reason, there is a split in the roof of my mouth. It should have been closed before I was born. Often food goes in my mouth and out my nose.
Because this is a birth defect most dogs born with this have no value and are never given a chance. That is what happened to me. Someone put me out on the side of the road in the snow. I just sat there looking around wondering how long it would take before I froze to death. But then came Tim.
Tim was going to work and he saw me, picked me up, and named me Lucky. Tim became my hero! Tim would turn me over and brush out the cleft. He would hand feed me. And Tim took me to have my cleft repaired. The surgery went great. But, someone should have told me dragging a stick around could undo all that had just been done, and sure enough I ripped out the repair. After all I was just a puppy and puppies drag everything around.
A week or so ago Tim and I sat down to talk about my future. Tim knew that I needed another surgery and he was still paying on the last one! Tim loved me. He told me I needed a lot more than he could give and my health was a priority. He told me I was a perfect little buddy and I would make someone so happy.
Today we said our good-byes. We both cried. But then I remembered I was going to have surgery and that everything was going to be all right! I can’t wait!
