This creative writing story illustrates the healing power of pets. The author discusses how the death of her parents affected her friendship with her closest friend, and how adopting Lucky the puppy helped her cope with the loss of her parents.

From the Paper:

"They'd been married thirty years, and never taken much time for themselves. After all, they'd always been so busy raising me and making ends meet. Now dad had retired, and they had plenty of time. Dad did a little consulting work, so they even had some extra money to spend on an exotic vacation. Last year they'd paid off the house I'd grown up in, so they'd decided to celebrate with a much put-off vacation.
"After collecting a huge pile of brochures and travel pamphlets, they'd picked a resort in Jamaica, just for older couples, and packed their bags. Those brochures made it look so fun and romantic!"
