    Default As bad as I hate it........

    I am going to have to give up my dogs....My health is gotten so bad that I just can't do it any more. I have some dogs listed over in the want ads and I sure hate to think of getting rid of them. I believe I had rather have sold my kids......LOL. I am going to try to keep a few dogs and do as much as I can but it is a crying shame to see these pups sit when they have a world of potential.[/img]http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p...oontheline.jpg

    Otey

    Did not realize your health was poor. Will add you to my prayer list.

    I can imagine how difficult it must be to have to sell your dogs.

    Hang in there.

    That's gotta be a tough, tough decision to make. Hope your health improves and that you find great homes for all of your cherished friends.

    Oh, Otey. I'm so very sorry. How heartbreaking. And of course you'll be in my prayers.
    I'll also pray your four legged kids will find the perfect homes.
    Take Care,
    Becky

    Otey ....

    I am so sorry to hear that your health is to the point that you would have to consider such a step!

    Chris and I met you at the Polock's first NFRA event and I will never forget your comments to me when I was airing our new pup at 4:30 am! You told me he was a good looking pup and wanted to know who the sire was. I said Cosmo and you told me that there was no way he could be a Cosmo pup as he was too quiet!! Well you will be happy to know that you were right ... he is and has been quite the talker!!

    Wishing you all the best, you are in our prayers.

    Sue & Chris

    Geez, Otey.......taking that step shows a lot of class. Being close to making the same choice makes me understand what you are going through. I'm thinking of you, and hoping you find a comfort zone that includes.........maybe a dog or two. 8)

    Otey, I don't know you, but I would like to thank you for making a decision in the best interests of your dogs. Incredibly hard, and very admirable. I hope I am able to be as selfless as you are being if I am in your position. My very best thoughts and wishes that you are as well and comfortable as you can be.

    Otey -

    I'm sorry to hear this. I have a friend in Kentucky who called me asking if I knew of any litters. I'm going to call her and give her your number.

    I'm so sorry. I enjoyed running into you at a field trial? Was it a derby?
