Is this time of year usually busy for adoption groups? Reason I ask is because for just about as long as I can remember, we are doing a hound haul around this time. More than once I was away on Dixie's birthday. I knew she would forgive me because we were getting more hounds to their couches!
Tuesday was a bittersweet day for me. Dixie would have been 12 years old. She and one of her littermates have both been taken by the damn Osteo. I sure hope to see a cure in my lifetime. This picture was taken of Dixie on her first Christmas with us. I miss her everyday.
Hannah, my sweet foster. It is definite, she is getting a forever home. Not with me. She is going north. I was so close to just saying leave her with us, but someone evidently needs her more. Out of the 23 fosters that I have had, I can say this one will be the hardest to let go. Every since I heard the news, I have cried at least once a day. I know it's best for her. Some are just harder to let go than others. This family specifically wants a senior, which makes my heart happy. I know she will be loved. She will make her move on September 8th, unless a GUR is set up sooner.
Anniversaries are hard. I hope that giving up Hannah is not too hard on you. I don't think I could do it. I have never fostered, but it is such a wonderful thing to do. I have kept in touch with Jack and Scout's foster moms. They gave them a good start.ReplyDelete
Those anniversaries are hard! I am so happy for Hannah. I had a few that were tough to let go, too!ReplyDelete
Bunny wants to know if anybody at your house will be modeling their new H4H collar on the blog. ;) We still don't have ours. *sigh*
You never stop missing them. We have a haul coming up at the beginning of the month. I think we have been averaging a 4-6 dog haul per month this year.ReplyDelete
We have had a blockbuster year for adoptions but lately it has slowed a little.ReplyDelete
