Frequently I get calls or emails from past adopters with updates on their Adopted Danes. Most of these updates are cute, funny or just touching base ... I love that! When folks adopt I "Welcome" them to the GDRNT family. We do not adopt and run, we are here for you during good times and bad. Sometimes the updates are not so happy and involve making the hard decisions. These calls that are not so easy. Being entrusted and leaned upon in a time of worry is an honor and privileged I do not take lightly. Over the years I have tried to find the magic pill, the healing words or relieving prayer to make these calls easier. Most of you are familiar with the Rainbow Bridge Poem and earlier this year I posted the touching Obituary for His Dog written by a famous Author. Recently I came across this and felt it summed up in words so much of what I try to relay.
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a pieve of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." bu ANONYMOUS
