I loved those puppies with all my heart and raised them as best I could. At this point I wasn't just bothering Karen for advice but anyone in the rescue, I was so nervous. Coco was an amazing, seasoned mother. They grew up quickly and during the calm moments I would reflect and couldn't imagine them not in the world. They were my babies, my first babies and I will never forget them. Eventually the time came to give them up, and I really didn't know how I'd do it. I warned everyone I'd be balling my eyes out, but I never did.
I remember sitting at the adoption event, in a corner hoping nobody would notice or try to talk to me. Suddenly a woman and two children came up to the puppy pens and they walked over to where my puppies were. "I think that one is Moose right there, do you see him? There's our puppy" she said. This family had never met him before, only read about him online and yet to them he was already "theirs." The minute I picked him up and put him in her arms I saw her eyes light up and the delight in her voice as she spoke kind words to him. That's when I knew I was hooked. As much as I loved all my puppies nothing could be better than seeing someone else fall in love, and seeing just how happy they made a person or family.
