...there is a Chomper-sized hole in my heart. The good news is - Chomper is in his new home tonight!! It's a family that looked at him the first week I had him. They were the only ones who stopped all that day at PetCo to ask about him. They really liked him, but they had to go home and clear it with mom and I never heard back from them. Yesterday I had Libby and Chomper at the adoptions and I asked someone to hold Libby while I took Chomper outside to pee. As we were coming back inside, we met up with a man and his son walking into the store. I thought he looked familiar but I'm not very good at remembering people. Then he said, "I see Chomper still needs a home." So I talked to him for a while and remembered who he was. I asked if he has a house and he said they do, with a fenced yard! No other dogs, but they do have 5 kids who are homeschooled by their stay-at-home mom. Yippee!! So they filled out all the paperwork and then went home to clear it with mom and called me within 10 minutes to say she said yes. I brought Chomper to them tonight and he was so happy, he barely would come to me to say goodbye when I left. I just came up from hanging laundry and saw the three dogs laying in the family room. I asked, "Is Chomper still outside?" because he always stayed out longer than the other dogs. My daughter just stared at me and then I remembered - he's not here. His empty crate by my bed is going to be hard tonight. But I know he is happy and will get tons of attention in his new home. He gets a boy to sleep with and everything. I *knew* there must be a reason that no one was interested in this awesome little dog. He was waiting for the right family, and now he's found them!
