We said goodbye to Ziva yesterday morning. Even with everything that has been going on between her and Harley, it was heart wrenching to see her drive away with my brother-in-law. I know he will give her a great home and a great life. In fact, she’ll probably be happier with him than she was with us but I miss her so much.
The house felt empty after she left. Even though I had been able to drag the toys back out and her crate was gone, well, so was Ziva. She wasn’t curled up on the bath mat waiting while I took a shower. She wasn’t chasing the bumble bees in the back yard. When I fed the dogs I only had two bowls. This morning there was no rumbled good morning bark.
Ziva is in a wonderful spot with a family that is going to love her dearly. My own dog, Harley, is already more relaxed than she’s been in three months. We were not looking to rehome Ziva but I know this is the best decision for everyone.
I love you Miss Z. Be a good girl for Nick and I will see you soon.
