Piper was adopted yesterday by a couple who seem like they will love her and take good care of her. One said that his late husband was diabetic and he has experience administering shots. Danae and I went to visit her at her new place to bring all of her supplies and talk about her care and feeding routines.

Piper was happy to realize it was us coming into the unit, but she was ensconced on one of the men's laps and decided that that was where she wanted to stay. That makes me feel a lot better. I want so much for her to be happy and not miss us for long.

This has been pretty hard for Danae and I. I guess I don't know what to say other than that. I'm happy, but quite sad at the same time. Our home feels a lot more empty.

*big hugs*

You were really wonderful to her, and she loved you for it ... and that will be something to carry with you forever.

Thank you. I feel really good about how much Danae and I were able to do for her and how much better we made her life.

I get so scared thinking about whether she'll be cared for as well as I did. That's not really rational, but it's hard to get past the thought that she's so dependent on me in ways that other dogs I've known have not been.

No, it would be irrational if you *didn't* feel that way! Piper was a part of your life for a long time, and you clearly loved her. It sounds like she's found a fine new home, though, and that's a wonderful thing.
