The puppy bounced back
The tiny black furball we found two weeks ago in the heat pump casing was rejected by the family we thought would take her. Not because of anything to do with her, but because they are trying to sell their house and feel that a puppy is not something they can handle right now.
Supposedly another friend of Sarah's wants the pup and will take her... in August. I'm afraid that by then we won't be able to emotionally detach ourselves from her, but we're going to give it a shot. Until then, it's puppy training time again for us all.
