Sophie...Our Sophie???

Remember our dog Sophie?  

Justin and I tried several times to find her a new home after we realized that she couldn't stay with us for various reasons.  However, each time we tried, we found a reason to keep her. Mostly because she tugged at our hearts too much.

Over the summer we decided to give Sophie to Justin's old boss and her family.  She and her husband have two boys to shower Sophie with affection.  And from what we hear - she's loving it!

Justin has been in touch with Sophie's new family to check in on her.  We had agreed that if they ever thought it wasn't working out that we would take Sophie back.  After all, we knew that she was a handful and thought they may have a change of heart after a week or two.  

Not a chance.

Since this summer Sophie has been camping, on family vacations, chasing squirrels in the back yard, and even bunking up with the youngest son each night.  

I just can't imagine Sophie - who we locked up in a cage each night and never let her off a leash outside - living with such freedom.  But I can guarantee she's happier.  

Knowing that she's happier - makes us happier too.

But - we do miss her!

Giving our dog Zoey to a nurse Jeremy's worked with was one of the hardest decisions to make. But I completely understand. It is funny to hear reports on her as well for the stories I can't even imagine that could of been our dog. So funny though and glad to know our dogs are happy and healthy with their new owners. Sophie sure was cute!
