On Tuesday afternoon, we made a very stupid mistake.
We thought we were making it for the right reasons;
But in hindsight…the decision was completely wrong.
We decided to adopt Mila out to a new home.
Mila growled at the first couple, and would not go near them…so that was a “no”.
The second woman, however, was very genuine, and Mila seemed to bond with her immediately.
So, with tears streaming down my face, I handed her over…
And away she went.
Despite her brief stay with us, we spent the next 24 hrs extremely sad.
Fortunately, sadness has a way of bringing things into sharp focus.
So last night at midnight, we realized our mistake.
We emailed the dear woman to try and get her back;
And fortunately, she understood.
(She had a dachshund, a cat, and a husband in the house, so she was not alone…)
This afternoon, Mila came home to stay.
And all is once again as it should be…chaos and all.
I am thankful we had a chance to correct our mistake.
