Another "loss" I haven't mentioned, is our foster girl Misty from Lab Rescue. She went to her forever home last week. A really nice couple drove nearly 4 hours each way to come and meet Misty. Misty loved them right away, in particular their 20ish year old special needs daughter, Joy. They were looking for a friend for Joy that she could walk with, and Misty truly fit the bill. The reports from them have all been good, and they are thrilled to have Misty as part of their family. Misty is enjoying long daily walks and swimming in a nearby pond. I'll admit, I'd seriously thought of keeping Misty. But knowing that she's a star in her very own home, and a friend and companion to Joy, reminds me of why I shouldn't have. She is missed, but I couldn't be happier for the family and for Misty.
I think Max may be happy about it too. But then, he's always happy.
