Was I ready?
Such an emotional day for me, I am worn-out! My Rescue group had an adoption event at Petsmart today and there were several people interested in Sunny. But 1 guy couldn't leave without him. and I started crying as soon as I realized the guy was serious.
I could tell that this was a "good" guy for Sunny just by the way he interacted with Sunny, but I checked his application over REAL-GOOD--(it had to be spotless in terms of what I believe to indicate responsible and loving ownership--because Sunny had become just TOO SPECIAL!)
I am new with this rescue-foster stuff, so I relied on the experience of the others. EVERY "regular" of the group was telling me, that "this is an extremely GOOD owner"
by the time the adoption was officially completed, I was a mess. Tears everywhere, couldn't stop.
I wanted to explain to Sunny-- why he wasn't going home with me like usual and I SO wanted him to understand that I was NOT giving him up-or abandoning him... AND that he was going to be SOOOO HAPPY.
He will just have to find out... and he will.
