: Judge has a new home. :(
: coonie1970 June 27, 2006, 09:59:12 PM
Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that Iv made a very hard desission. Ive been so busy with the new store that Judge has been home alone WAY TOO MUCH so, I have been looking for a new home for him. I think Ive found the perfect family . This is sooooo hard.Ive been pondering the idea for a couple of months now and have backed out twice already. I feel like Im being selfish. Judge deserves to be somewere that he can be a dog. He isnt happy and Im just keeping him cause its so hard to let him go. :'( He will be 10 min. away, in the country and with another dog. The people who are getting him wanted to wait a few days to get him so the whole family could be home with him to get him used to everything. The lady came by tonight and Judge just loves her. I told her about you guys and Im hopeing she comes on.
Ill quit babbling for now and Ill let you know how it goes. THIS IS REALLY HARD!! :'( :'( :'(
Be back soon.

I am so sorry, Coonie, that you have had to make this decision. But it is a true tribute to your love for Judge that you have made it and found him the best situation for HIM. I applaud your courage, even as I cry for your loss.

You have made one of the toughest decision and it shows your true love for Judge, not many people would put their love for the animal before their own, it shows how caring you are that you want you baby to be happy even if it means letting him go.  It sounds like you found a place that Judge will be very happy in, family, friends and land to run on.

Again, I'm sorry

I'm so sorry that your family is going through this. You are doing what you feel is best for Judge, though, and no one else can tell you what that is because they aren't in the situation with you. It sounds like he will like living with this new family. Has he been introduced to the other dog? I recommend introducing them on neutral territory, not at the family's house.

Take care.

I wasnt sure if Coonie would get a chance to update everyone on how things went with Judges first introduction to his new family, so I thought I would come on and fill everyone in.
I went along with Coonie to bring him. And Judge and his new buddy seem to get along quite well. They both have very similar temperments and neither seemed to concerned about the other. Judge made himself right at home and was on his best behavior. He took to the whole family really well. A very nice lady, two young boys, a husky friend and lots of room to roam. What more could a big Saint like Judge ever need.
The guy even offered to bring Judge over to Coonie any time she wants to have him for the day.
The kids were ok with Judge having a new home but I think Coonie will miss him dearly.
Coonie thought long and hard to make this decision and looked for the absolute perfect family for him.
I think she has found the perfect Family.
Even I will miss the big slobbery dude.  :'(
But these people are super nice and we have known them for a long time so they arent exactly strangers.
And we can go see him whenever we want.
What more could you ask for???
All dogs should be loved as much as Judge is!!!

What a terrible decision to have to make.  Pretty selfless too - I'm not sure I could have made the same one.

I'm sure Judge will be very happy with his new family - sounds like they love him already!

Thank you so much guys. Now I am crying. :'( I miss Judge so much. I cant even imagine how all of you who have lost a dog feel. I know Judge is somewere that I can go see him.
 We spoke to his new Daddy yesterday and he said that his dog and Judge get along like old buddies.Judge got in bed with him in the middle of the night. LOL Well he got ON him in the bed LMAO too funny Judge is known for that. He kicked him out of his bed but Judge spent the night with one of the boys. All is going well. Ill try to get out there with my camera to show you how nice a home he has.
Thanks again. None of us could get through these things without our BPO friends.
