I think I made a big mistake.........
I had posted on here about a year and a half ago that I had lost my 12 y/o Lab mix to cancer. The grief was just horrible but after a few months we became involved in raising a puppy for a guide dog school instead of getting our own dog.
Fast forward to July 2nd. It was a wonderful experience. He had to go back to the school for his formal training. And we decided to wait till Sept. to get another puppy because we have a trip planned at the end of the month.
Well, He did not make the program due to his hips (they have to be perfect) so they were going to "career change" him to drug dog or search & rescue, but then decided to release him totally and, of course, we got first option to adopt him. But we were unsure whether we wanted to have a "forever dog" yet and there was also a local family where they have 2 kids, 3 other dogs and the mom has early stages of MS and they were wanting a dog like this so I told them to let that family adopt him. That was Tuesday.........and my heart is just breaking. I can't stop crying. I cry myself to sleep every night. I was okay with him going off to be a guide dog or S&R but now he will be here locally............but with a different family.
I know he will be good for the woman with MS and my grief is selfish...........and I can get another puppy in Sept. But I want to call and say I made a mistake and I want him here. My poor husband doesn't know what to do with me. He says we made our decision and need to now just move on.............. makes sense....right?
