Being Lucky – it’s a dog’s life

By Martin Jurek, Campbell River Hearing Clinic

If you’ve been to our office, at some point you may have had the fortune to meet the most important member of our family and our family business: Lucky.

A Maltese-poodle, Lucky is the official greeter and security guard of Campbell River Hearing Clinic. (Okay, that last title is really just honorary; he only weighs 8 pounds,) A great little dog, Lucky has a wonderful personality and loves going for walks or sitting with Jana and me – especially when we’re eating chicken or steak. He’s also very smart, as is proven by the fact that he’s bilingual, understanding both Czech and English.

Like most dogs, Lucky knows plenty of important words – well, important to canines at least. Use the word “walk” by accident and you’ll have to deal with the consequences. Mention the word “cat,” and all hell could break loose. We even have to be careful not to say “coffee” in Czech because it’s very similar to the Czech word for “kitty.” Suffice it to say, mornings can be exciting around our house. Or at least they used to be.
