The puppy is doing great!
Sorry I got so emotional.
2 years ago, my parents died. Dad was March of complications from diabetes and Mom was cancer on Christmas eve. I sat alone with her and wrapped my children’s presents and watched the inevitable last breath, alone.
After making the arrangements, I had to go home to the kids and be happy, since the magical time of Santa only lasts a few years. My wife was as upset as me, but I had to be strong for the family and push on. My only outlet was taking Maggie ( my golden retreiver)out and the two of us would walk the neighborhood, thinking and unwinding in the quiet of night.
In October, a tumor burst and she passed away. I didn’t know how much it would to lose my companion.
I can remember crying maybe 4 times in the last 20 years.
When you handed me the puppy(Natasha), I was overwhelmed. Sorry if I made you uncomfortable. I’m not emotional, but that moment completed my family.
Nothing will ever replace Maggie, But there is plenty of room for healing and new experiences.
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am.
If you ever need anything, please let me know. I have many connections. Always check. From Philly DA’s to Joe Biden’s brother. I will send pictures soon. Thank you for all of your work. I is sooo grately appreciated. You are a true hero to our family.
