home sweet home.
these past couple weeks have been bittersweet, sad and happy at the same time. i've found nibblet a new home and her new parents and elvis, her bf, are head over heels in love with her. i feel confident that her new life in gorgeous laguna beach, where there are sunbathing decks with an ocean view, a million-dollar beach resort home, a new boyfriend, and gracious loving human parents will give her a life even i will envy.
this is probably one of the hardest things i have had to do in my life. any dog-owner knows that their pooch is just like their child. but following in the tradition of the Joy Luck Club, i'd rather give up my child in the hopes of a wonderful life than keep her and have her possibly put down by the chinese government during quarantine. well not exactly Joy Luck Club, but same premise. i visit her once a week, b/c i miss her and i don't take her home with me, to get used to her not being around. it's been hard, lonely and sad but i tell myself everyday, this is for the best.
here's to nibblet's new home sweet home.
