I have been avoiding writing this post for awhile now as is not an easy one.....
A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night with a heart wrenching realization.......it might not be the right time to get my Flatcoat puppy after all :( I couldn't fall asleep after that wondering why that thought entered my head.
My heart was all of a sudden telling me that I needed to be more available for Tate, and a puppy would take time away from him. I am not sure why all of a sudden my mind went in this direction, but it did. I talked with a few of my close friends & told them what I was thinking. I talked to Liz almost immediately to tell her how I was feeling as well. I didn't want to prolong it. It was one of the most difficult things I've had to do.
Then within days of my decision, Tate became ill, it was like a sign that I had made the right choice. I had many days of tears, but when it came right down to it I knew I had done the right thing for now. Tate deserves no less.
I continue to visit with the puppies, I have a favourite which makes it harder, but at the same time I feel a connection with these puppies so I enjoy my visits so much!
I have no doubt I will have my puppy one day so I am doing better now. Hopefully I can help with socializing & maybe have some weekend play dates at my house with a puppy :)
