Well, fine folks, I don’t really want to get into it extensively here (even though this is a blog, and my blog, to boot), but we ended up realizing that a puppy was not right for us (especially with our lack of attached yard) and ultimately made the decision to take her back to her breeder so she could find a new family (with a yard!). It sucks, and I’m still a little sad about it, but I was so incredibly anxiety-ridden while she was here that it was ultimately the right decision for us at the moment.
And thus. There is no dog. Let’s move on, shall we?
