Today was probably one of the hardest days of my life. For all the dog lovers out there, you will understand where I am coming from. Today I had to give away my little best friend Lola. Lola is a beagle who needed a place where she could sniff and run around when she wanted to. So for about a month we were looking for the "perfect" family for her and we finally found one. The Gague's. The Gague family already has a beagle name Phios(spelling?) So today we took Lola out there to check out the family and home. Turns out they have a large screened in porch with a pool(very popular in Florida) where Lola can lay in the sun(which she loves to do) and a golf coarse as their back yard. They take Phios out there a lot and let him sniff and run around. Perfect for Lola. Phios and Lola hit it off right when we came in the door. I knew this was the new family for Lola. I have never given a dog away and it was seriously devastating. I bawled like a baby, but I knew this was a better life for Lola. We currently live in a town home and since Emma was born I have had no time to take her on her long walks or go to the dog park for 2 hours a day. The Giagu's have plenty of time and a lot of love to give Lola. We will be keeping in contact with the Gague's and they will update us through e-mail about Lola. Lola, you will be missed!!! You were the best dog I ever had!!!
