After leaving work with no puppy for the first time in 3 weeks, I think we fully realized what our decision meant.... no puppy. It was sad to come home and not have a puppy around... to be able to go to bed without having to sleep lightly, ready to jump out of bed at the first sound of a hungry puppy... it was actually sad. It was hard work taking care of them, not alot of quality sleep, lots of puppy pads and washing towels, but they were our puppies!
After that first night puppy-less Jason had a change of heart and realized as much work as it would be to keep Darwin, that's just what he wanted to do... he missed having a puppy in the small condo. So we went to work and told Tom we changed our mind. By that time they had told one of the families on their waiting list of potential adopters that a female had become available. He would have to see if it was possible to tell that family that, sorry no, she's not available afterall. So we spent a second night waiting to see if we were too late, and would go back to being petless pet lovers.
