An Abrupt Farewell.

As I have (briefly) mentioned before, we will be moving very, very soon (I plan on having an explanatory post up before the end of the week).  Because of our big move, we knew that our time as Miss T’s foster parents was coming to an end…

This past weekend, we went to visit friends and family for a series of “farewell” parties, and left the pups behind.  Rufus stayed with a co-worker the entire time, and due to a busy schedule, Teeny was set to go to daycare/boarding overnight for half  the weekend.  During her stay, I knew she was possibly going to be meeting new potential fosters and their own forever pup.  The good news?  The introduction went very smoothly with her new foster brother.

The bad news?  This meant we did not get a proper farewell of our own because she was swept away to start another mini-adventure with new people and a new doggy foster sibling. Hopefully her new big brother is a little less grumpy about the whole situation and her puppy antics.

Our gumby puppy!


While I am so very happy that everything went smoothly, I have to say that I’m a little heartbroken that we did not get to cuddle the heck out of her one more time.  After three and a half months of that adorable face in our lives, it’s most likely that we may not see her ever again.  Now that’s hard to grasp…  But!  I am trying to look at the bright side: this means I have just under two weeks of one-on-one time with Rufus to work on his training and to get him prepared for a road trip of a lifetime.

Oh my, I’m going to miss this muddy monster.

Teeny was our first foster after adopting our 10th solo foster, and the most important lesson I took out of this experience is that I absolutely love having a mini-pack!  I cannot wait to get settled in asap and foster or adopt yet another wonderful creature in need.


**For those of you that are interested to hear Teeny’s happy ending, I will absolutely keep in contact with the rescue and let you know when she has found her forever family.  Stay tuned!

  1. Wow, this is both terrible and great at the same time! Glad you are focusing on the positive and as someone who just moved, I’m SURE you have plenty of boxes to keep your mind off missing her.

  2. We just sent out first ever foster to her forever family this weekend and I am still dealing with the feelings of saddness. I know what you must feel like without really saying goodbye. It’s nice that you are looking forward to your next one already. We aren’t sure when we’ll be emotionally ready for another foster! It was tough saying goodbye!

    • The first one is always the hardest. Believe it or not, it does get easier. Not to mention that when you find another foster that steals your heart completely, you will know that’s your next forever pup 🙂

  3. So sad you didn’t get a proper farewell! Well, hopefully you are friends with the new fosters so you can get updates? Where are you moving to?

    • We are good friends with the intake coordinator, who happens to be friends with T’s new foster parents. She’s doing so well with them, and I can’t wait for her to find her forever home!
