However, we are very eager to see what he'll do once back at the school! I know someone will ask, so let me go ahead and alay your fears. Yes it will be hard to let him go, but remember he was never "mine" in the first place, and as we're going through our year together, we're doing a LOT of training and preparation of the dogs for this next stage. So the thought of keeping them after all.that.work is disappointing. Believe me, finding out your dog has been, as we call it, career changed (taken out of the program) is a little short of devastating...especially if you had high hopes for his future.
That and, we're typically getting a new puppy after the old one goes, which keeps us very.very. busy. Unfortunately this will be the first time, in four years, that I won't be getting another puppy as my old puppy goes back. Some different situations happened and for now I'm going to wait for Midnight to have puppies, which will be sometime in the spring..if she's pregnant...something we won't know for a little while yet.. So Pompei's turn in will be much harder than my past puppies to be sure.
However, I know my decision was the right one when I stepped outside this morning. O.M.G it was COLD.
Back to Pompei, he got a Deer Antler and a Bone for his birthday, the former of which, Texas promptly stole. Than when he saw Pompei get the bone, he proceeded to stalk him around the house whining.
Aaah Sibling Rivarly.
Whatever will he do without his Big Little Brother?
Happy Birthday Pompei!!!!!
