She's been adopted. Man! We loved her!! It's okay. At least she's got a home.
On the plus side... Well, two things: First, we're approved to get a dog and so can go whenever and pick out an even more perfect new family member. Second, we don't have to worry about the new dog on the 4th. What with the fireworks booming frighteningly and a potential trip to see Nana and Poppop, we were a little iffy about having a new dog. So we'll go Saturday. Early. And be first in line for whatever wonderful lovey needs us most.
Meanwhile, Pete and I are watching the website and have a couple picked out to visit with if they're still there this weekend.
