While we certainly hope to have our Cockapoo Lucas around us for many more years to come, I got to thinking that it would be fun to put together a compilation of many of the photos we have taken in the almost 11 years that he has been an important part of our family.

The idea originally presented itself as a sort of Christmas gift for our wonderful pet sitter, Jan.  She has been taking care of all of our animals here in New Mexico whenever we go on a trip.  However, she has only known Lucas for about three of his 11 years.

Since Lucas has been a part of most everything that has gone on with us since moving to New Mexico, with the exception of some of our international trips, and a few trips here in the States, not only is this a pictorial of the last 11 years with Lucas, but it is also very much a pictorial of our lives, both here and in Wisconsin.

To see a compilation of all of the pictures and collages we have put together please click on either of the following links.  They will take you directly to the Photobucket website where all of the pictures can be found.

However, if you are understandably not up to wading through all of those pictures (there are more than 70 of them 🙂 ) I have included a few of our favorites in this post.

(The picture above is NOT actually our Lucas.  She is the inspiration for our Lucas.  Her name is Dakota, and she is a Cockapoo belonging to our friends Susan and Bob from Portland, OR.)
