Melancholy

It's chilly and rainy here. I've been fighting off a nasty cold, and I had to relent and get some antibiotic assistance today.

In a little more than an hour, we say farewell to he who has become known as Little Bittle (pronounced lid'l bid'l).


He's only a 20-pounder, which is tiny around our house. He's been at this particular stop on the Underdog Railroad since Thursday, and tonight we're taking him to the one who will transport him to points further east. He's about four years old and will make a very good companion for someone... who I hope finds him through the rescue group soon.
Saying goodbye to Little Bittle will be bittersweet, but not that bad, all around. While I'm doing it, I'll be thinking of friend and fellow RevGal Sue, who will be letting go of her beloved cat Ouzo tomorrow. They've done everything they could for that sweet kitty boy, including this last thing that will bring him peace. But this last thing is so, so difficult, even if it is the most loving and compassionate act possible. Please be in prayer for them.

I've been thinking and praying all day for Sue and Ouzo. So sad.

Sad for both of you. Terrible for Sue and the rest of Ouzo's people, and hard to let LB go, too--what a cutie pie.

LB is a great-looking guy - hope he finds a forever family soon

What a beautiful dog. It will be hard to say goodbye. I hope he finds a home soon.

Thank you for all of your prayers. It's been a tough week here, but we're doing okay.
