41. The dog I found a new home for 3 months ago is doing very well
Edited on Thu Oct-18-07 06:16 PM by slackmaster
I gave her to a single mom who has a nice home on some land, a young boy, two other dogs, and a couple of cats.

The woman is a former veterinary tech. I've followed up and can say with confidence that all parties are better off as a result of the transfer.

Our agreement was strictly verbal and informal. No hassles, no money changing hands, no intermediaries. Just me giving a dog to a better home than I could provide.
