Today is an odd day for Bill and I.
We have decided that we are going to re-home two of our dogs.
At this time in our life, we have not had,
and do not foresee having, the time
to devote to giving these two pups
the quality of life they need and deserve.
Unfortunately, in all our anxiousness to find
a playmate for Lucy, we didn't fully understand
how much time they would need from us
to be living how they should.
While our Lucy is older, these two
are young and need someone to be able to
run and play with them, more than
we are able to right now.
We have worked with the rescue organization
that we originally got Mick from
and they found two great homes for them. Homes
where they will not have to spend so much time in their
crates or be boarded at the vet.
So that is certainly good news for them.
As we are sad that they are leaving,
this morning we are excited to
explore the possibility to welcome a new addition,
by becoming foster/adopt parents.
Our forward thinking about this possibility
was another toward our wishes to place the dogs
in a new home.
So today we attend our first meeting in this
process than one has to go through
to become adoptive parents.
After Hannah and Connor,
we said we were done.
Then we had Garrin.
And then I was done because of my hysterectomy.
We said that if we could, we would have had another.
(oh sure, now that we can't, right??)
We think we are pretty good at this whole
So, if it can't be one of our own,
maybe we could give a good life to
someone less fortunate.
And I am hoping for a girl.
We will see.
What will be, will be.
So as our day is filled with mixed emotions,
only good can come in the end.
