Puppy Update

If you are friends with my on Facebook then you probably already saw this, but just in case you haven’t been on there lately or don’t check it frequently, I figured I would post a quick update on the latest puppy that we had applied to adopt.

Ryan called on Thursday to see if there was any news (we had originally gone up there last Friday to meet the foster mom and pup and she said we should hear within the week). They told us we could hear by tomorrow, which was Friday. We waited and waited and no news. By the time Ryan got home from work and surfing (we both have ‘half days’ on Friday) it was about 4:30 and they had closed at 4. We called them Saturday morning right around the time they opened (10am) to see what was going on. They said that they ended up placing both puppies (the one that we wanted and his ‘sister’) together late the night before. When we went up and saw him last week, they did tell us that they would prefer to adopt them out as a pair, but if no one was interested they would split them up.

We were both (and still technically are) crushed. We had been envisioning for a week at that point of this little pup coming home with us and being ours – I know, it was probably our fault for getting our hopes up. I think for the time being we are going to hold off on any more puppy searches. [We have put in our application for 3 or 4 now and have been turned down every time – I am just tired of it right now] I am sure there is a perfect pup out there for us, and we will find him eventually, when the time is right.

Thank you for all of the prayers, encouraging notes, kind thoughts, etc about the puppy search. Please know that we truly appreciate you and your kindness!!
