The last few days have been an absolute emotional rollercoaster. It started with lots of tears and just feeling my heart ripped out of my chest. Losing Gibbs so unexpectedly completely rocked my world.
The last few weeks Chris and I had been looking for a Redbone Coonhound Lab mix puppy to add to our family. We wanted one to relieve some of Scarlett puppy power from Gibbs. We were told that they were adopted, they didn't adopt out of state, to not being able to find the right fit. We put out word everywhere that we were looking.
As I was hugging my pups extra hard Chris's phone rang. A rescue in MD received Redbone Coonhound pups Sat/Sun from an AL high kill shelter. They had two females and wanted us to come look at. The confusion began what do we do Scarlett needs a friend but my heart hurts too bad. Why now after we were searching for weeks?
Well we decided to go look this evening. A door that had been shut was finally open and we didn't want to miss out. We took Scarlett and would leave it up to her if she wanted a sister. Scarlett fell head over heels for a little 8 week old munchkin. She is sweet and cute and mimics Scar. What do I do? I feel like I am cheating on Gibbs can I mourn and lover her like she deserves?
Then the discussion I had with my mom this morning came back on how God works in mysterious ways, another friend told me to go look as Sadie and Gibbs probably planned this from above to help heal my heart. I look at Scarlett and her big brown eyes were pleading Please Mom. This baby needs us. So while we all mourn as no one will ever replace Gibbs he is irreplaceable I have opened a new place in my heart for a little munchkin that needs a loving home some TLC and a big sister.
