Two-year-old Ivy McLeod laughs while playing with Lucky the puppy outside their Chilliwack home on June 10, 2021. Ivy is a congenital bilateral amputee – her arms were not formed correctly while in the womb. There’s no official name for it, so it’s typically known as a “limb difference” because her limbs are different than what most people have. On April 6, the same day that Ivy’s mother Vanessa put the call out on social media in search of a puppy born with a limb difference for the family, little Lucky was born just six minutes away. They brought her home on June 1. (Jenna Hauck/ Chilliwack Progress)
