Perfectly Petless :(

For the first time in 13 years, I am completely petless and it sucks.  As many of you know, I lost my beloved Lab, Remi in August of 2012 and have really never gotten over her being gone.  I miss her face every day.
We also have had a pet Guinea Pig, Darwin.  Cutest little face you ever did see.  I had to say goodbye Darwin over the weekend...he went to live with a new family.  Long story short, his presence in our house was wreaking havoc on my husband's allergies and asthma.  The final straw (literally) came when he had a full blown asthma attack last Wednesday, after he unknowingly came into contact with the hay we feed Darwin.  So, yeah...time to go, little buddy...
Luckily, I have a friend who was happy to take Darwin and give him a new home, complete with three little kids who will love and enjoy him. {sniff sniff}  I took my last trip to the Pet Store on Friday to pick up a few things to send Darwin off with.  I literally cried walking through the aisles of Petsmart thinking that I had no reason to go back after that trip.

So, what is it about pets that we grow so attached to them.??  I believe it's their sweet innocence and loyal companionship.  They're just happy to have you around and other than food and companionship, they really don't expect much more from their humans.

“Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.”
