Today was long and dull and well it pretty much sucked. I was constantly contradicted at work and I got hit by a car in the parking lot!! I mean, look in your rear view mirror people!! Anyway, all my frustration and anger just went away when I got home and opened my e-mail and had two messages that instantly put a smile on my face. One was titled Sherman, and the other Spanky!!!
The one from Sherman said:
I am glad that he is still doing well. He has been with his "potential" partner for a little over a month now so hopefully he is "official" soon!
The best news though is that Spanky has a home!!! I am so happy that he was placed before the holidays so that he can spend them with his new family! Here is the message I got from his new mom: (and yes, she already contacted me, I am already loving this match)
Dear Megan,I am so happy for him. It sounds like just the right place for him, and I am sure he is loving it! Here is a pictures she sent me too. :D
Thank you for raising Spanky to be such a great dog. In the short week he
has been with us, we have all fallen madly in love with him. Your
description of him was very accurate. He is sweet and loving, smart and
goofy. He is also beautiful.
I have the year off from my teaching job, so Spanky and I have a lot of
bonding time. I take him for daily walks in a wooded area and he has had a
few play dates with other dogs. He is wonderful on the leash except when he
is tempted by other dogs, then he needs a bit of reminding. After school,
where he charms everyone, my fifth grade daughter ___ practices retrieving
a ball in the park with him. He is a quick learner.
We look forward to taking him to the beach to swim and to building many
family memories together. Spanky is a dear and has brought lots of joy and
laughter into our lives.
Thanks and best wishes for the holidays.
I guess it wasn't such a bad day after all. :D
