Saying goodbye to an old friend…

Posted on Monday, January 28th, 2008 at 7:19 pm

It was a sad weekend as we said goodbye to Ollie. We adopted our dog Ollie 3 years ago from a shelter. Over the past few years we’ve worked to rehabilitate him. Unfortunately, last week he took a snap at Emily. He thankfully didn’t break the skin but scratched her forehead a bit. This is just the beginning of “the curious years” and a warning to us as parents. I’d like to make excuses or find reason but I can’t. I only see my baby girl, the innocence of her curiosity and the fact that my dog lashed out at her.

Auntie Kate, Grandma and Grandpa George offered to adopt Ollie. Ollie now shares 3 acres with their dog Maggie. Maggie and Ollie have spent lots of time together over the past few years and they adore each other. We got an update last night from Grandma and Grandpa and apparently Ollie is having a great time in his new home.

We’re saddened to say goodbye to Ollie but overjoyed he’ll remain in our family and with people that love and want the best for him.
