barbaraSanAntone Posted April 22, 2007 Share Posted April 22, 2007 I don't quite know where to post this, so moderator please feel free to move. My little problem is "Capullo" a 2 pound, 5 year old teacup chihuahua. I have had him since he was 5 weeks old. I have many friends (no family) who dearly love him, but it is such a responsibility (yes, he's spoiled) to take on a dog (they have pets too, or work or a number of reasons). My plan has been to put him with his vet, if I should become suddenly ill, and friends would take him until he could be properly placed. But today, something hit me. I met a stranger who stopped and played with Capullo (I'm telling you, everyone loves him) and this man told me his little chi had been stolen/missing for 3 weeks and it was the joy of his life, his wife, his child and this dog meant more to him than anything, and he was feeling such grief. I got to thinking, why not give Capullo to someone now, that way I can see how he adapts, how he might fit in with a new family, and I would feel more secure knowing he was okay. Now, I havent told any of my friends about my possible new plan, as they may think that I am "giving up", because they know how I love my little dog. But I am realistic, and know that my future is "iffy". So, I am wondering, has anyone faced this kind of problem? Hey, I know there are bigger issues with us folks, but thought someone might give me some help. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
