It's official. . . .
We are now a two pet household. Pencil "escaped" (I think a little boy left the door open accidentally), and today we found a good home for jewel. I have been listing jewel on our local online classifieds for about six months now since I just feel overwhelmed and I feel bad that she is quite neglected. Sushi is too busy to spend any time with her and since I take care of everything else besides his school and work I also was too busy. Now don't get me wrong, she got watered and fed but that is about it. Other than that she sat on her chain in the back yard and entertained herself. Everyonce in a while I would head out there and try to play with her but it just didn't happen too often. So, I re-listed her recently with the title "lab/shepherd mix, great for teaching to hunt" since the bird hunt happened not too long ago or something(a lady I know told me this, I don't really know when the bird hunt is). I actually got a response. I think it will be the perfect fit. The guy who took her lives on a small ranch up in Idaho and wants to teach her to hunt birds, help with cattle and be a good companion dog. I think it's perfect, she can run and run and run on a ranch and he seemed to be really good with her. He's a nice older man and has had lots of dogs so he knows how to deal with her and he's had lots of labs so he knows how to deal with labs. The kids are thrilled, they are glad to be dog free, I feel a huge sense of relief because it's one less thing to think about and I know she'll be so much happier with her new owner. So, there we go, it's official, I bet you thought I was going to say we had a baby or something didn't you?! Hee hee, three more weeks and I'm done.
