AND SPEAKING OF FUREVER HOMES - look evFURRYone
Before Rocky could go to his new home, we were dealt another blow. We had a 4Dx done on Rocky "just in case" since he was about to be adopted. He was not due yet, but we felt the need to be sure. Rocky came up heartworm positive (he had been negative last March, and has been on preventative since). The family was unwavering in wanting to adopt him. We followed up with tests, and we found that yes, he is definitely positive, but he has no microfilaria (baby worms), so the preventative was working, but it is not enough to kill the mature worms in his heart. Rocky began medication today, and he will begin treatment in 2 weeks. He is a fighter, and we know he will pull through.
Today was one of the hardest days of my life. We let Rocky go to his new home. I had no idea how much of my heart that big lug had stolen or quite how painful this decision would be. I know now how hard that decision must have been on Debbie last June, but we all want the same for this big boy who just craves attention--and we knew he deserved more than our busy households. I had a panic moment, almost couldn't do it, but I knew in my heart this was the best thing for him. His family welcomed him with open arms, a big bed, loads of toys and a sign noting where his room was (their 9 year old daughter made the sign). They made it as easy as it could possibly be, and we knew he would get the love and attention he deserves. As we left, the tears didn't stop, and even Andrew cried and called out "Cocky, Cocky" trying to let us know that we forgot something. Rocky sat by the door and watched us go. I have that image imprinted in my mind right now, worrying that he is still waiting for us. The family let us know that he did stay by the door, but he also ate and was resting peacefully. We know, with time, he will adjust and thrive.
Now, in an effort not to be too depressing, I want to let you know that after Rocky is healthy, he will hopefully get a girlfriend (we are thinking Kia who is on our website). And, Andrew may have found a girlfriend (their 22 month old, Olivia, who bosses him around like any girl should! ;-).
Please keep Rocky in your thoughts. I will keep you posted, and here's to wishing for that "happily ever after" update to come very soon. :-)
