Bye Bye Ally!

Okay, so what is almost as bad as sending your "baby" to Kindergarten? Giving away your dog that you have had for 10 years. Yes, those of you who love your pets and do not have children, please don't judge. We (meaning Jonathan and I) love Ally but she was not a big fan of the kids and really they were not big fans of hers. She was beginning to spend most of her time hanging out in the closet where no one would bother her. Some neighbors of my parents were interested and sent their youngest child to college last weekend. They are very excited and have bought her a new doggy bed without even seeing her. I was sad and have shed tears over her leaving. It is what is best for her though - us too. Anyway, I was crying so I didn't even take our picture saying bye to her. All Ella wants to know is if we are getting another dog, fish or crab! And Jude wants to know if I am sad like this when he leaves.

The house isn't going to be the same without little Ally Gator Griffin. I'm glad she has a great couple to stay with!

As a none pet owner myself, I know you made the right decision!!Life will be much simpler and Ally will be happier. I wonder if they would take my sister's dog too?

I audibly gasped and Jay came running out of Eli's room thinking something was terribly wrong! I can only imagine how hard that was for you, but I know it was the right decision for you and for Ally. She will be so happy to be the center of attention again!

Poor Ally! Mark says he will miss her drinking from his cup and keeping her when you all have to go the hospital. Glad she has a new place to live and will be given a lot of TLC. .

I cannot even imagine the sadness!! You know how I am with Emma.... I'm sad for you but it sounds like Ally will be happy and well taken care of. Remember the birthday parties for her?? Ha!!! I don't have Emma full time now and its killing me. I feel your pain(somewhat).
