For five days, Howard cared for Winnie and showed the puppy what it was like to have a real home. “She learned to pee outside and sleep in the crate during that time,” Howard said. “She progressed before my eyes in a way that was incredible.”
Howard knew she couldn’t keep Winnie, since her own dog Foxy preferred to be the only pup in the house. But that didn’t make saying goodbye any less painful.
“I cried for three days after she was spayed and went up for adoption, worrying about whether she had found a good home,” Howard wrote on Twitter.
