Peanut gone!

Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I found a great home for Peanut. My husband and I sat down last weekend and really thought long and hard and decided that it was the best thing for my little girl. She needed more love and attention than what we were giving her. We visited the people that adopted her. They are such a nice family. Their house was really big and they had a big yard. We took her over there to see if they would get along. She loved them. So, we decided to leave her with them. The next day I was having panic attacks and thought I made the wrong decision so I almost went back and got her. So I called the family and they said that they would definitely give her back but that she is so happy playing and they already got attached to her. I felt bad cuz they had a chihuahua for 14 years and had to put him to sleep cuz he had a heart condition. I didn't want to take her away from them so I decided that it was the right thing to do. Now she's not cooped up in a one bedroom alone all the time.
But I have to tell you, it was the hardest thing for me to do. I've been crying now and then just thinking about the little things she used to do when I get home. But I know that it was the best thing.
I already told my husband that once we get a house and I'm able to work par time, I'm definitely going to get another little girl. :cry:

I'm sorry that you had to give up your little girl, but I am happy for her that you found her a good loving home.
I'm really sorry you had to make that difficult decision - I couldn't even imagine how hard it must have been. But is sounds like you made a very good choice. That was a very unselfish thing to do - you must be a really great person!
So sorry for the sadness you are feeling :cry: I had to do that one time also (with birds) and it was so difficult. I cried and felt like I made a mistake. I kept in contact with the family and visited several times and my birds were so happy. I had to give them away because they made to much noise and my landlord wouldn't take it anymore. They went to a good home with other birds. I think you should visit your dog once a week for the first month and once you see how happy she is, you will have peace. Keep us posted on how you are doing.
It sounds like you found her a good home. If she is happy that is very important
Wow - what an incredibly selfless thing you have done. I know you miss her, but don't be sad. You should be so happy to know that she has a great family. Not only that, but they now have her and you have completed them as well :) There should be more people like you!
So sad about the choice you had to make but at least I am happy that you found a good home for her.
Thank you guys so much for your support. :wave:
It's so nice to know to know that.
I've been wanting to visit believe me. But I just can't but think that if I see her and knowing how excited she will be to see me, I will break down. I know myself. I'm still crying everytime I think of her. I see her running to me and lying on her back so I can kiss her tummy. She loved that. She would just automatically lay on her back and beg for tummy kisses.
Just to even think about her, I get the urge to cry. I can't even imagine seeing her and not taking her home!
At least you found her a great home and that's what really matters! :)
I am so sorry you have to go thru this but you did find her a good home, maybe when it doesnt hurt so much you can visit....that is better than never seeing her again right?
I know how sad you must be but it sounds like you made the right decision. it'll get easier w// time. :)
You must be a very special person if you can put Peanuts wellbeing before your own feelings. I am proud of you! :)
You did a really nice, selfless thing for Peanut (and the new owners). I hope you don't feel sad for long. :)
sending you lots of {{{HUGS}}} you definately made the right decision :wave:
I can't even imagine how difficult it was for you to give Peanut up. It takes a strong person to do that. It'll take time but I'm sure you'll feel like you made the right decision. :wave:
