My Surprise turns into Disappointment

Well, I had hinted to a few of my blog friends that I was going to have a surprise for them, but I am so sorry to say it did not happen.
 
As most of you know I lost both of my dogs last year and I had stated I would not get another dog unless it walked into my life like Homer & Leim did.  Well, last Monday my vet called and said he had two sealy terriers he was holding for a rescue group out of Pennsylvania and if I was interested to come and see them.  He said he immediately thought of me because it was two males and they remined him of the two I had lost and he thought it would help me to get over the loss of mine.
 
I hesitated at first and said do I really want to do this again? I’ll go look what can it hurt? So hubby and I go and fell in love immediately with the two little dogs, they were from a puppy mill and this rescue group had gotten hold of them and my vet was holding them until they could come and pick them up.  So, he gave me the number of the rescue place and I called, she would let me adopt one but not both because she said this breed would not do well together with two males.  At first I argued with her and said I don’t see, they almost seem dependent on one another.  In the end she won and I decided to adopt one, so today my vet said he wanted to run some blood test to make sure the one I choose was healthy.  While he was doing this I was at W-mart getting all the supplies I would need when I picked the dog up on Monday from the rescue lady.  My cell phone rang and he said Pat , I am so sorry to tell you this after I got you involved, these dogs are in poor health and they have something going on with their liver and pancreas, just like Homer & Leim.
 
Needless to say I was sad, because I know now I am ready to have another dog, and yes I did have my heart set on this one, I went and visit with him everyday, trying to bring him out of his shell. What was so sad this little dog has never had his feet on grass, always in a kennel.  How can these puppy mills do this?  All for the love of money???? 
 
The rescue lady is picking him and his brother up on Monday.  Hopefully she will see they are taken care of .  Here is a picture of the one I wanted to adopt.I had named him Hutch.  Thats all for now. Pat

    oh Pat I am sorry things didn\’t work out with Hutch.  He is very cute BUT you don\’t need to go through a dog\’s ill health again, especially not this soon.  I believe that everything happens for a reason … the perfect doggie is out there just waiting for you! 
    Kudos to you to be willing to take on a rescue dog.

    Sorry to hear this Pat, honest, this is sad.  Like Linda, I agree that everything happens for a reason.  You are a very loving woman I can tell, but someday, the right puppy will come along, have a great Sunday, xxxVenus

    Oh!  I am so sorry, Pat!  I agree with Linda though – your perfect pup will find his way to you.  Ours did, so I know it can happen.

    Pat I am sooo happy to know that your heart was open to new babies to love!  I am sorry tho, that this one turned into a disappointment.  I think it was a test – for yourself to see that you could indeed love again!  The right one(s) will come along!  I just know it!  🙂   (we all know what a sap i am!)
