A Tale of Sinda

She's going away. I know that, based on my last "Sinda" post, I should be thrilled. There's a part of me that is, and there's a different part of me that's really sad. I do love her, you know. She's incredibly affectionate and that makes it hard. I think the biggest emotion I feel is relief. I just can't do her right now. I have too many other things on my plate. She needs time and attention that I just can't give. Fortunately, the breeder where I got her ( is wonderful. She truly loves her dogs, and is happy to take her back. Maybe not happy, but she's very understanding and supportive. Isn't that fantastic? She will help her to find a new home. As a matter of fact, she already has a lady that's interested in her. A single mom with one 5-year-old child who works from home. Sounds perfect. That "only child" NEEDS Sinda.
That sort of makes me cry. I know that this is right, but it's hard anyway. I've had her for almost a year and I do love her. I just want her to be happy. I think we'll both be happier.
So tomorrow I take her back. There are many good things that will come from this. I could list them, but that would get boring. I do know that I'll be able to enjoy Rocky more. Right now any time I try to pay him any attention she's right there. Bless her heart.
Do I regret getting her? Maybe. But she's taught me something:
I like dogs that are little....with little mouths....and little hair....and little poop.
Sorry, maybe I took that too far.

It's so hard to give up a pet. Even when you know it will be best for them.
