Johnny Seizes to Amaze Me!

I woke up this morning pretty excited just with the fact that Johnny will be home at the end of the week. He also sent me a nice good morning text message. (The way we do most communicating at this time) But at 9am he tries calling me, I can't answer because I'm working with the children, then texts me to say, "Happy Dating Anniversary". What a guy. And the stereotype is that men usually don't remember dates. The truth is that I have a hard time remembering that date. I wonder if he remembers the day we got married too. Guess I'll have to wait and see...

He just melts my heart knowing he knows the little things about our relationship. He seems to be a turd around others but there is another side to him. Honest, I've seen it.

Daisy's been Adopted

I want to say that I'm happy to say that Daisy has been adopted. Although I'm not sure how exactly I do feel. I guess I'm just worried that it's not going to work out with her other family. She is just a lot to handle and I hope that whoever did adopted her has A LOT of patience. Good Luck Daisy!

Other updates...well there's not much to say. Mollie and I have been hanging out at home not really doing much. Johnny is busy in California and Mollie and I can't wait to hang out with him for a short time when he does get home.

Everybody, have a good weekend!

Daisy is Gone

Well sad to say but I did it all by myself. I took Mollie to have a pawdate at her friends. Then Daisy and I drove a hour and a half to her temporary home. I was complete control until I walked into the building. I was a mess. She's a great dog but I guess I learned my lesson. Always make sure it's okay with your landlord before you bring home a dog. Or...just buy your own house so it isn't an issue. Someday Johnny and I will get there.

I filled out the paperwork. I forgot her medical records. I need to get them to the shelter by the end of the week. I signed a contract saying that I was surrendering her then I brought her in. They asked if I wanted to say goodbye. The answer is that I don't want to say goodbye but yes I will. I sat and cried with her while she licked my tears away. The lady handling her said she would be fine. There's alot to do with other dogs. My thoughts were only where will she sleep if she isn't going to be in bed with me. Too bad I didn't ask because I want to know now.

Mollie was fine when I saw her afterwards. But when we got home she went looking for Daisy then laid by the front door as if to wait for her. I tried having Mollie give me kisses after awhile and she wouldn't even look at me. I'm in the dog house. This morning she even stayed in bed an hour and a half after me. I know she isn't liking the situation. Hopefully she'll get used to being the only dog in the house again. She didn't destroy anything while I was at work, that's an accomplishment. And she is eating some food right now. She may enjoy this life again. She'll soon find out that she can come along with me more often.

Johnny feels bad. He loved Daisy too. I wish he were able to go with me so I had him to cry on. It was difficult handing her off but it was time. Maybe he'll make it up when he gets home for a couple of days in May. We all loved Daisy and we'll miss her.

Update on Daisy

So I'm in conversation via email with a dog rescue in Portland. They are wanting to make an appointment to meet Daisy. That's a good sign. Not sure how I'll react when she does go. I know I don't want to be the one to hand her off to the next person. This is so heart wrenching. She is apart of the family and we will all miss her. I'll let everyone know what comes of this appointment.

I'll just have to remind myself some of the best choices we make are the most dificult.

In Denial

So I haven't written about anything cuz I am terrified of Johnny leaving. I trust that he will keep himself safe and try to stay out of trouble but come on it's always scary to know that your husband is going overseas to a place that isn't the safest place to be. This certainly makes it difficult to celebrate my birthday. So anybody out there go ahead and eat a piece of cake because my nerves are shot and I'm not interested.

On a lighter note: We did get professional pictures taken. I'll download them...later. I think they turned out cute. Mollie of course is the cutest in the picture.

And it's sad to say but it has taken sometime to realize that maybe I should give Daisy away. I wish I didn't have to do this. Johnny and I have fallen in love with her. But she needs a yard she can hang out in and we don't have that. I'm currently looking for a rescue that will take her that way I know she won't be put down. Wish she didn't have being deaf as a drawback on people thinking about taking her in. She just needs a more active family than I am that wants to take the time to walk her and play with her.

Wish me luck in all my adventures in the next month!
