Bye Bye Dogs

Well after much deliberation, Daryl and I decided that it was time to help our dogs find a new home.  So on Saturday we gave them a bath and loaded them and Roxy cat in the truck and I took them to the Idaho Humane Society.  Really I felt like a loser pet owner, It seemed that everyone else there was adopting a new pet.  But they said the dogs would probably be adopted within a week and that Roxy would be pretty easy to place.  I'll probably call on Saturday to see how it's going.  They did tell me that Xena is too old and would probably not be adopted so we're looking for a place for her if anyone would like a  cat.  We are trying to do this because of my allergies and the allergies of nephews and friends.  We will totally clean out the house after all pets are gone. 

The relief of not having that extra responsibility has been wonderful.  So now we are working hard to make our back yard a place we spend a lot of time in.  We have quite a bit of work but it will be great when it's done.  Although with home ownership I don't think it's ever done.  It seems like we'll have a summer of work and play...sounds about right. 

I would like to say that those two dogs were so sweet and loved everyone.  They truly are gentle giants.  They were awesome with the kids and were good to have around.  I'm sorry that we couldn't keep them.

What a hard decision! We have been on the fence in the past, but lately Harley is great! I think she sensed our hesitation with her & stepped it up!

Whoo hoo! I finally found your blog. Now we can REALLY be friends!

I have to say that even though Gracie will greatly miss the animals at your house, at least there won't be poop for me to step in! I'm sure they'll find a good home.

So sad, but probably a good move with the allergies, etc. Thanks for dinner last night and so sorry about the camping trip...maybe in late June?
