Hillscreek Posted May 10, 2017 Share Posted May 10, 2017 As the song and the bible say "there is a season" for all things. This is the season for me to let Angus go to his new home. When, age 79, I got him as a pup I knew I would have him only for a few years and he would be my last dog. I've trained up many a pup. I thought I would like one last go. This has worked out wonderfully. He has been a joy and challenge to work with. At five years and eight months he is a great cairn terrier - healthy, in the prime of life, relaxed, sociable, gets on well with people and dogs, ready to go anywhere and try anything. Now that I am in my eighty-fifth year it is becoming difficult for me physically to do the best for him. I started to look around my connections. his breeder, my doggy friends etc. I did not realize he would be so fortunate as to find a home with his BFF. This jack russell and the mules and horse belonging to my friend have been his second home since he was three months old. She asked to take him and I was so happy. She knows Angus very well and he knows how to behave with her mules. Old Tizzie the jrt practically raised Angus teaching him doggy manners when he was a rambunctious teenager. So though I am sad to be without him I am very, very happy as to where he is gone. And so grateful for the fun and loving I he has given me. We plan to let him be with her for some time until he is really her dog then I think there will be opportunity to visit with him when I go visit her. Isn't that wonderful? There IS a silver lining after all. I shed a tear but I smiled as well. 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
