The Goodbye's start today.

Matt & I are pretty compatible in our decision making.  We spend a lot of time considering and discussing.  It may seem some of our decisions are rash (we did get engaged within a month of meeting and were married in three months) but, I can assure you they are still well thought out and we stand by them.

When we made the decision to relocate to London, a million other decisions followed.  One of the toughest was what to do with our adorable rat terriers, Sugar and Mister.   After much consideration, we decided that taking them with us was not a good option, so we were left with finding them a home.

We sent out several feelers and knew (hoped) that this was another thing that would fall into place.  And it has.  A wonderful coworker has introduced us to a lovely retired couple.  They live on 4 acres in the Hill Country.  When we were visiting, they showed us a picture of their beloved rat terrier they recently lost to cancer.  She looked just like Sugar & Mister. They travel often in an RV and will take the pups everywhere they go.  We could not have asked for a better home for our wonderful animals.

We tell ourselves how lucky we are to have spent time with these loving animals.  We are so happy that they will be able to stay together.  We are thrilled to have found such a great home for them.  But, knowing this all in our heads, does not make our hearts ache less.

So, today is the first of many painful goodbyes.
