Well, a week ago today, on the 4th, the Lab Rescue place called. They had found another foster home for the puppy.
So, that evening, they came and took her away. So ended the toughest 84 hours I've had in many a long year.
I think I will now pull back the scouts and sit-tight while I let the dust settle in my life before I make anymore forays into the unknown.
Maybe I'll get a cat instead.
No, dust settling first, cat later.
