Heavy heart, tears, when I faced the truth that Buddy was a liability we couldn’t afford when our lives played apple cart turn-over. We decided to find a new home for him. What a shock to realize all the rescue programs were filled to capacity, and some only take puppies. We had no other choice but to take him back to Cheatham County Animal Control.
I made a box for Buddy. In it I placed all of his toys, his super-size bones, food, his sweater, and his vet certificate. We placed him in the crate that is his bed and set out. The director met us and assured us that Buddy wouldn’t be in ‘custody’ for long because he had all of his vaccinations and tested negative for heart worm. She did her best to make our parting gentle. I’m accusing myself silently, traitor, cruel, faithless. I must face that I’m doing what is best for Buddy and for me. I did my best the 2 years I had the privilege to share my life and home with him. Now I’m believing and praying he is in a gentle, happy home.
