Me and Andy had to make a really hard desicion over the last week and last night we saw Womble go off to his new family. As you can imagine many tears have been shed and it hurts like hell but at the end of the day it was the best for Womble.
Unfortunately when we decided to take on a dog we were under the impression that I couldn’t have children so was never an issue and when we had the happy news we thought it would be ok but as time has gone on I have become more ad more worried about her reaction to the baby as she even has to be between us when me and Andy kiss and this combined with the fact that I could no longer take her for walks as she was to strong and pulled to much for me whilst pregnant (she pulled as she was still learning as she is only a puppy) she wasn’t getting walked as often as a collie should so last week we contacted the rescue centre she came from who have a policy of lifetime responsibility of their dogs and they agreed to find her a new home. We agreed to keep her whilst a new home was found so she didn’t have the trauma of going back into a foster family.
Last night they called and said they had found a wonderful family who are not that far away in an area we know which is surrounded by fields and they had done a home check and were we ready. It was awful but far better for her at the end of the day, so please forgive me if I am not my normal happy self for a while.
