A Mickey Mouse Life Mice in Disneyland
Mary and her husband Jim had a dog, Lucky. Lucky was a real character.
Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would
warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would
help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably someone would
forget and something would come up missing. Mary or Jim would go to
Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid
all of Lucky's favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy
box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.
It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told
her she was going to die of this disease...she was just sure it was
fatal. She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders.
The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A
thought struck her...what would happen to Lucky? Although the three
year old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die
Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't
want to leave him. The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own
death. The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had
anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky
for his evening walk faithfully but the dog just drooped, whining and
But finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she
arrived home Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the
steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and
left her to nap. Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her
when she called. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she
dozed. When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was
wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. Panic
soon gaveway to laughter though when Mary realized the problem....she
was covered, literally blanketed in every treasure Lucky owned! While
she had slept the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement
and back bringing his beloved mistress his favorite things in life. He
had covered her with his love.
Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again,
walking further and further together every night. It has been 12 years
now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky? He still steals treasures and
stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.
