|Duke went to a new home today...! Kinda forced myself to put the exclamation mark, cuz it makes it look like I'm REALLY happy about it, but I'm not. Oh, I'm sure the family will be great, the dad loved him and they have a couple other dogs his size and live in the country (but will stay in the house, of course), and they have a young son so I know he will have lots of fun, love, and snuggles. I also know his parents, they own a business in town and are very respectable so that gives me a bit more comfort in knowing that. I also know that I needed to find him a new home since he was a foster, and because I'm moving in a few weeks and can only take Twister...so it is a good thing he found a new home (I'm sure my sister would have taken care of him temp, but already has Echo and is going to take care of my rabbit and our grandma's cat and it would not be easy on her).
But coming home without him felt really horrible, and I'm pretty sure Twister and Echo were smelling me wondering where he was. The house has been really quiet since he has been gone...and Twist and Echo easily guilted me into sharing my ice cream with them (usually they wouldn't have much of a chance). It may take a while to move on. They do have my info if they decide it doesn't work out for some reason...but I hope I don't start hoping they change their mind.
