I’ve decided that not all of my pages will be rainbows and unicorns. Real life is messy. Though most of my photos are from the brighter spots in life, I do have some that bring back painful memories. Admittedly, I put off scrapping those. However, this week I decided to scrap a photo of our dog.
Please don’t judge me too harshly. We only had her for 5 days. When we adopted her, we had no idea that she was half of a bonded pair… neither did the shelter. I just knew that she was so incredibly unhappy and stressed out while living with us. My leaving for work was torment for her. I just couldn’t watch her in that much pain every day. So, we returned her.
Luckily, a miracle happened for this little girl. The shelter hadn’t adopted out her other half. Once they had them together again, they realized they couldn’t be separated. She got adopted out to a wonderful family with 2 kids and a cat. She immediately became best friends with the cat, who had previously been withdrawn and moody. I think it was meant to be.
Here is my favorite photo of her. She may have only been with us a short time, but there is still a hole in our hearts and an empty spot on our couch.
