Bye Lola

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!!!

That would be so hard, I don't know what I would do if I had to give my dog away. I for sure would bawl like a baby too. I cant wait to see you in a month I'm so excited!

Oh I am so sorry! I have known quite a few friends who had to give away their doggies once the babies came--and they were always so sad about it. I've never had a pet, but I hope you and Lola can still keep in contact!

I'm so sorry you had to give her away. I have to give Chloe away too, and I know I will cry my eyes out. Even though I haven't had her that long, she's a good dog.
