I can't help but be sad, even I know this is the right thing to do for this precious little girl. Gracie is the bottle baby that I raised from Chatter's litter. She was born in March. I've grown very attached to her. Even though I knew there was no way she would be a show dog, I just couldn't bring myself to part with her. Well, I guess things happen for a reason. Last week I had to put an old favorite labrador patient down for one of my favorite clients. These people are awesome "puppy parents." When they told me that they would be looking for another lab pup, I couldn't help but think this was meant to be. In their home, Gracie would be an only dog and would have a nearly teenage human "sister." Even though I am about to cry just typing this, I know this is a wonderful opportunity for my baby girl. And to top it all off, I'll still get to see her frequently at the clinic. Anyway, while one part of me is soooo sad, the other part is excited to have such a wonderful place to send my little one. :'(
So bittersweet. :-\ I hope Gracie has a great life with her new owners.
Awwww. I can imagine how split your emotions are. I'm glad for Gracie to have such a perfect new home, though. And as you said... you'll see her from time to time.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
