Yesterday at 6:30am, my trainer came to collect the girl from my home on her way to work. It is now just over 28 hours for me without her here. Her new forever family was going to be collecting her at 11am on Tuesday.
The night before, I carefully packed her bone, toys, medications, treats, feeding bowl, and paperwork.
I had a chat with her to tell her about her new life and how much I would miss her. I told her that she would be going to live with 3 children who have been sleeping with her picture every night and how much they all can't wait until they get to keep her forever. She gave me extra cuddles and didn't seem to mind my tears.
Yes, you can get very attached in only one week. It happened to me.
When she was picked up on Tuesday morning, I was ok. I knew her new life would be more fun for her with the kids than it was just hanging out with me. The trainer left the big doggy bed with me and said someone new will come along soon.
Dear De came to stay with me all day and we went out for a lovely lunch. When we got home, De did some stitching while I traced some super cute Dinosaurs for a future project. De helped me get through a tough day. Thank you luvie for distracting me. Today I feel a bit lost. I didn't get to let the girl out this morning or make her breakfast or give her a cuddle. I think she will be perfect for her new family though and with 3 young children to love her...yes, warm fuzzies for sure. I miss you a lot though, dear girl. You were a good companion for me.
The adult part of me knows she will have a lot more fun with 3 kids...but the little girl in me is missing her like crazy today.
Today I will just stay in and hang out with a box of tissues.
Tomorrow will be better.
Hope your day is a good one! xx debbie
