Giving up Missy has created a hole in our home. I don't know about anyone else, but I was missing the company. When the boys go to bed, the house becomes a quiet place. Missy was a great comfort to me.
Matt and I discussed adopting another dog. We discussed breed, gender, size, age, hair length, everything really. But in the end, we decided we may not be 100% ready for our ideal dog. Instead, we decided to enroll in a foster program with a local shelter.
How it works is we tell them what we're willing to have in our home and then when a dog comes into the shelter that matches us, we get a call that we can foster that dog. We're responsible for his or her care until it comes to be that the dog can be placed in a permanent home.
If you're interested in adopting Roo, just give me a "holler" and we'll get you in contact with the right people! :)
