A Rainy Update

The other day, just when I had decided that I wouldn't try to contact Rainy's new family anymore since it has indeed been a while since she's been with them, I received an email from her mom with some pictures. And while I still miss her so and know that it was *me* and not her that wasn't ready for this, I know she's happy with her brothers and having other puggies around I think has made all the difference for her. I know that I'll be looking for another dog probably in the early spring next year (or maybe a bit before even) and I know I'll be more ready then. But Rainy will always be in my heart.

When it's time, you will know...

And the right one will find you!

Thanks for the Rainy Update!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I can tell that Rainy is loved so much by her family. She looks like she is being spoiled as she she be- She looks so adorable in her littel clothes, and wrestling with the other puggies,
I think of her all the time.
I almost felt like we knew her,

When the time is right for you- you will know. Yes- you will.

Awwww, she is just adorable in her little dress!

We agree with everyone else, you will know when it is time to make the decision to get another doggy. There is a doggy out there for you and when you find him/her you will know.

Pugs & Kisses,

Yoda & Brutus

How bittersweet. I'll be happy when I hear that new dog has arrived...

I hope you don't beat yourself up over the Rainy situation. When Vito first came in to my life, it was a HUGE adjustment - I was like you and had my own schedule and was able to come and go as I pleased! I had to cut out a lot of time going out with friends and I still feel horribly guilty anytime I leave him. It just wasn't the right time for you!

On another note, Vito had an "interim mom" too like you were for Rainy, and I still send her updates on Vito even though it's been almost 8 months and she was only with him for 2 months. She appreciates them so much but tells me how bittersweet it is because she misses him.

Hopefully one day down the road you will find the perfect match, pug or not! :)
