A Hard Decision but
through many tears I had to make it. As most of you know I have been ill for over 2 years. I like as much as possible to not dwell on that fact. Right now, I am feeling fairly well, praise God. My sweet husband knew I missed having a dog and we brought Lacee home. But, as much as I wanted to believe I was strong enough, I found that I still do not have the stamina to keep up with a brand new puppy. My husband is gone for 12 hour shifts and then sleeps to get ready to go back to work. His first shift back brought swiftly the realization that I cannot run after a puppy. I so wanted to. I thought I could. But to be fair to her, I must face the fact that I am not as strong as I once was, nor do I have the stamina I need. Anyone that has a new puppy, and I have before, knows the effort it takes. The family we purchased her from was more than understanding and said they know they have another buyer for her, so she will get a good home. I deleted the previous post, because it is a little painful to me right now. I thank you for all your well wishes regarding Lacee. Believe you me, she was loved and got lots of kisses for the 3 days she was with us.
