I gave my dog up for adoption today. The house seems so quiet. And empty. And lonely.

No, she's not a beagle. She's a coonhound. And yes, she has attempted to climb the tree in our backyard.


  1. I had a dream last night that my brother was giving up two dogs for adoption that he doesn't really have. I also had a dream that I was diagnosed with HIV.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had to part with her.

  2. Awww, Maggie. I'm so sorry. I'll pray that a good family with lots of kids, hugs, naps, and car rides would adopt her :)

  3. Maggie, we've talked about it already and let me just say that it is the intent you put in your deeds that qualifies them, not the deeds themselves. As you had to do it for her best, then so be it. There will be other forces at play which will answer your call.

  4. I miss her a lot too, I just need to keep telling her that she will be happier this way..

    Thank you for doing this, I don't know if I could have.
