Quick note from the Mom:
Hello everyone! First I want to send my condolences out to Charlie's family. We did not really know Charlie, but it is obvious that he was loved and will be sorely missed.
The Painter Pack is in full mode now...we're moving this coming weekend. So, please do not be alarmed if we disappear for a few days/weeks. Although, I doubt it will be much more than a few days. The problem is that we have not been able to find a place to move to...yep, that's a problem.
Back in March of this year, my dad passed away suddenly. My mom has been having a horrible time since then, financially. I'm by no means rich and being on short term disability from work has cut my income, but I love my mom and did what any child would do. I helped her out. So now, I find myself short.
So, the perfect solution is that the pack is moving into grandma's house! Yes....and considering she has 4 doggy babies herself, well...you get the picture! It won't be forever, but for a few months. My mom has got to build up some savings and get some things paid off so that she will not struggle.
The only bad thing is that most everyone will have to stay in their crates for longer periods. Except Mya, who will still be with me in my bedroom. But my room is SMALL...and my son doesn't even have a bedroom...he'll be sleeping on an air mattress. Of course, during the daytime, as weather allows, we will take the dogs outside on their leashes and let them run us. But it still won't be an ideal situation.
Please do not think bad of me for putting them in this situation. I love them with all my heart, but my mom's dogs are small--2 chi's, 1 weiner dog, and 1 outside lab type dog. I cannot allow my big ol' babies to rip an ear or tail off of one of the small doggies. I don't think they would do it on purpose...well, maybe they would...but you see my point.
Anyway, that is my post. I hope that you all can support me during this transition. It's not perfect...but it's the only solution we could come up with.
The good thing is that you'll get to meet the other doggies! Sammy, Sydney, and Chester! The boy outside is Buddy.
I love this blogging world and everyone I have met throughout this past year. You've taught me so much more about how to love my babies. And I thank you all for that.
So, until we talk again, God bless everyone, furry and not.
