Monday Giveaway Linky: Cheering Up Edition

Good Monday, Heroes! Today we are more cheerful than we were last week. You see, we had to decide it was time to find a new home for our beloved Marlee (one of our Jack Russell Terriers). She really needs to be the only pet in the home; living here with another dog had turned into a lot of conflict. A wonderful trainer helped both dogs get back on track but advised we find the new home for one girl. Wow, was that ever a difficult week. I was a wreck myself because Mar Mar has been my dog mostly. The older boys were sad, as was Hubby. The younger ones were really sad. For all of them, this was a first experience with grief.

I think we’re doing okay with it.

I still miss my girl though.

I am distracting myself with work, and with finding M-dog her new family. If you’re the praying type and wanted to send up a little prayer for her, that would be most appreciated. God loves dogs too, and I know He would like her to be in a wonderful home.

In the meantime, let’s talk giveaways! Please click on the links below to enter some great bloggy contests. I hope you win!

    What a horrible decision to have to make. Still, the fact that you did what was best for her, even though it caused you pain,, speaks volumes about how much you loved her.

      Thanks, Emma. I think we found a really great home for her. It’s still a bummer and I miss her a lot. But we know we did the right thing.
