|Lucas was born in North East Oklahoma in late July of 2009. He went to his forever home with his new “mom” in November of 2009. He was a very tiny guy, weighing just around 1.25 lbs at almost 4 months. He grew up to be the most wonderful Maltese ever. He was loving, protective, playful, funny, and gave the absolute best snuffly kisses. He was a snuggly napper and had many lovely afternoons with his mama in bed. He traveled all over the U.S., as his mom was in the Army. He made many trips from Oklahoma to Montana, Texas to Montana, and finally made Montana his home the last few years. He adapted to the snow and loved to play in it. He loved to play fetch and tear up toys. He was “10 feet tall and bullet proof” and always was ready to take on the world. As hard as it was to be with you at the end, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It was so important to me to make sure you weren’t alone, that you KNEW how much you were loved. Every thing feels so empty without you here Luca. Your waggly tail and little bark is missing. I miss seeing your eyes, looking at me so intently. I miss you teasing the other dogs with your treats. I miss you forever. I hope you know how much you were loved. I hope we meet again.
