WW: Relinquishing Regal Rudy
Note to reader: I know this is supposed to be wordless Wednesday, but I thought you'd like to know that this will likely be my last post about our Rudy Puh-too-tee. As of this weekend he won't be ours anymore. We're re-homing Rudy with a wonderful family (mom, dad, four sons ranging in age from mid-teens to early twenties) who already loves him and will be committed to him every bit as much as we'd hoped and dreamed. He seems a perfect fit for them, as well as they for Rudy. They met last weekend and seemed to bond nearly instantly (Rudy embraced them without reservation, as if they were old friends).
Theirs is the kind of home where Rudy will be part of their lives 24/7 -- having full access to all rooms of their house; sleeping on their beds at night, curling up at the feet, walking with them in the woods, swimming and playing as they do, just being buds, etc... I really couldn't be happier about his placement: they're great people (we've known them a long time), they're the right people for him, and he's the right dog for them. It's definitely a God-thing (how Rudy is ending up with them). I can part with him now with no regrets this way -- it's all good.
I just thought you'd like to know so you can enjoy his precious face in today's entry, since he probably won't appear here again.
So long, little Bud. We love you, Rudy. We'll miss you, but we're truly happy for you. And you'll always have a home here in our hearts.
'Til nex time,
