The Puppy Has a Home!
One of my coworkers is taking him. He (the coworker) has a house, two kids, and a fenced-in backyard. The puppy will have a much happier life there.
As cute as the puppy is, I think I'll have a much happier life with him gone. Because I've had to keep him apart from Rowen and because I've been trying to keep myself from bonding with him, I've had all the work of having a puppy with very little of the fun.
And although Rowen has her off moments, we have an agreement that if I give her lots of love and attention and playtime, she'll give me space and quiet time. We live well together.
So I'm looking forward to a quiet, relaxing long weekend (Friday off! Waahoo!) and the puppy is going to a good home.
All is well in the world. Or, at least, in my world.
