Life is sometimes not what we wish it to be. Circumstances often change like leaves dancing in the wind. Such are the present days.
We had nine days with little Tucker. The good news is we did fatten him up (11 lbs) and the medication did wonders to his health. Though he is a sweet puppy, he and Lilah Rose were not to be friends. As they say "all is fun and games until someone gets hurt". The puppy did not understand at times that Lilah did not want to play and instead of stopping, he continued to nip and pounce on her until she became fearful and would run away to hide. Lilah is such a gentle soul that she didn't understand that she needed to growl or bark at him to stop. She became anxious and would barely eat or sleep.
After talking to the foster mother/rescue, we decided it best for all dogs involved to find a better home for him. The foster mother spoke to me and Tucker is doing very well. She has numerous applications for his adoption. He is making himself at home (again) as he spent more time with her than he spent with us. It would not surprise me at all if she decides to keep him herself.
That being said, this was very difficult for me to do. I broke down crying in the car on the way to his foster mother's home. Sometimes doing the right thing/ the best thing is also the saddest thing. Such is life and I am spending much time in prayer thankful for all that God provides.
