I miss my dog. I took her to live with my brother, sister-in-law, and their son this past Monday. I drove the almost two hours down there with her, played with her a bunch in her new yard, stayed the night, and came home on Tuesday. I was feeling okay about the whole thing because she seemed to get along good with Nephew and their other dog. But then, as I was walking toward my car to leave on Tuesday morning, it was like she KNEW I was leaving her because she started jumping on the fence and barking at me. I felt like a BAD TRISHY! It was reminiscent of when I used to babysit and I had to leave the child with another babysitter when I had to go to my wisdom teeth removal appointment and he just bawled because he wanted me. That's how it made me feel. And now, I come home after school or work and look at her dog house and her tie-out cable and I keep forgetting that she is not there. I miss her. I know it's for the best, but I really, really, really miss my dog. I've had her for over nine years and now all of a sudden she is gone. I know I can go visit her whenever I want, but it's two hours away. That's not too terribly far, but it is longer than I'd like it to be. :( I don't know if I'll ever get another pet. I love them, but when they die or you have to get rid of them, it just is sad. Anyway, thanks for listening. See ya later.
