I got her!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, yeah, I cried, I admit it. Yep, had to get all dramatic - and I had to hand the phone over to my husband because I was blubbering like an idiot. But you have no idea - or maybe you do - of how badly I wanted her. I felt a connection to her instantly and though I had never had a female dog (my preference has always been male because they're more affectionate) I just wanted a dog that was different from Sampson.
I waited a week, all the phonecalls on our references were made - and when there was no call as of this afternoon, I was mentally getting ready to give up on her because I couldn't bear the thought of not having my heart's desire (once again). I struggled to not be so attached (and lost). Just a little something to look forward to. Yeah, yeah, I know I could be bitching about her pissing up my bed in a month, but I'm so happy right now. I feel like can breathe again!
