Last Weekend With Wiley

Another chapter closes.

My friend Beth successfully brokered a new home for Wiley. The new owners in question are teachers, marathon runners and dog lovers in the extreme. They lost their Collie in May, and their two other dogs were distraught. The lady of the house, Tory, came over this afternoon to meet Wiley in person, and it was love.

He will be spoiled. He will be well-exercised. He will be well-cared-for. And he will have a pack of his own to keep him stimulated and entertained. We will get his affairs in order over the weekend, while Tory and her hubby are running a marathon in Chicago. They will pick him up on Tuesday.

There will be tears here, as we say goodbye to our fuzzy companion. But we are very happy he's going to the perfect home for him, while reducing the stress level here.

You gotta do what you gotta do. At least you are being responsible and finding him a good home. So many people don't bother.

Fantastic! I'm so glad it worked out for everyone! No endings for anyone...just new beginnings. :)

Sounds like Wiley is going to the perfect home! Happier dog, happier family, sounds like everyone's a winner. Well done T 'cause it's not easy to decide that a loved pet is having a negative impact on the family and the family is having the same effect on the dog. You are a truly responsible pet owner and I tips me lid to yer.
