I am so sorry that I have not posted for a few days - it has just been too sad to do so. The reason - we gave the puppies up for adoption.
Yes, I know my last post said that we were keeping them, but things changed. We had a BBQ on Friday night and the older two dogs were acting very strangely, agressive to each other and showing a lot of jealousy. We were concerned - Saturday things did not improve and without constant attention - we were really worried that we were heading down a very dangerous path.
The puppies are/were at an adorable age and after many hours of discussion/tears/heartache - Ivan and I took them to the RSPCA on Sunday for adoption. It was almost as bad as my three miscarriages - I cried and grieved, but knew we had made the best decision.
Tuesday, I called into the centre and they were already playing with a prospective new family - ignored us completely. Tuesday evening, Ivan called in on his way home from work and they were no longer up for adoption. A phone call gave us the good, but sad news - they had already found new homes.
So to our two beautiful puppies - Crystal and Lucy - thank you for the few weeks of JOY you gave us - we hope you are loved and cared for.
