Words can not even express the emotions I have been going through the past 12+ hours… Here we go.
Mike and I got an email yesterday afternoon stating that we had an unapproved pet that needed to be removed within 24 hours. My heart sank and I started bawling my eyes out at work.
In our lease, there states nothing about having an animal. In the fine print in an additional piece of paper they gave us when we moved in, there is a hidden sentence that says no pets. We of course only read the lease. Mike and I are beating ourselves up over how stupid we could have been and we are feeling like this is 110% our fault.
Petrie is now staying at Mike’s parents for the time being. Mike and I will do everything in our power to not take her back to the Humane Society. We are unfortunately in a one year lease that has about nine months left. We really want to keep Petrie since she is our little baby, so we are trying to find foster homes for 9 months.
Call us crazy, call us whatever you want, but until you have lived through that immediate connection, you could never understand.
We are hoping that Mike’s parents and sister will do a rotational schedule of having Petrie at their homes. This way Mike and I could go after work to visit with Petrie and spend a day with her on the weekends. We would totally fund the dog and take her to puppy classes. If they are unable to take Petrie for this period, I have no idea what we will do.
Be creative people, do you have any ideas?
Anyway, I just wanted to give my bloggie friends a heads up of what I was going through. So please bear with me through my sadness, anger, frustration, you name it, I am feeling it. There have been so many tears in this household, I need to try to keep it together.
