I just received a call from Suzie, a volunteer that works with the SPCA in Murray, Ky. She wanted to chat about Kimba. She asked me some questions and listened a lot to what I said. I liked that about her. I think that it is very important to actually listen. We talked about boxers, where the sweetness would live (duhhhh, inside with us), how we would keep her in our yard and keep her away from chasing deer or whatever critter might come along. After all of the talking, the tears I spoke through when I spoke about Annie, and apparently how I answered the questions Suzie told me that we were approved and that she felt very good about Kimba having a forever home with us.
There is paperwork to complete. Things to get in order but the bottom line is that precious baby that someone forgot, let out, didn't care about, whatever the case is in her past is ours. She will have a forever home with us. We are up for the challenge and the training that she will surely need. We don't know if she has ever been inside a home before. But, boxers are so very smart there is no doubt in my mind that she will do great.
We might be able to adopt her this weekend. It depends on several things they have to do. Whenever it is I am ready. I am up for the challenge and I guarantee one thing. This pup will never ever have to worry about lack of love, food, vet care or whatever she needs. She has a sister here ready to welcome her, play with her, love on her and be her best friend.
After I hung up from talking with Suzie I laid the phone down and cried. I cried for Annie and how she will never know this sweet pup coming into our lives. I cried for the loneliness that she has been through for the past few weeks not knowing where she will be from one day to another. And another thing. I thought that 3 weeks ago we let our Annie get her wings, and apparently Annie made sure we would find this sweet girl.
Naturally I will keep yall posted on everything. You will probably get sick of what I share with you. But I don't care. Because there will be playing in the house again. There will be a youngster in the house again. There will be training, potty messes, chewies all over the place. But most of all there will be a very lucky dog that has found an even luckier family to have her in their lives. For this, I am truly grateful.
