Farewell, Gwen

So I have been holding off on saying anything till we were sure things were going to work out, but now that we know for sure, I’m both happy and sad to announce that Gwen has a new home. Those who know the situation with Gwen know that there have been a lot of challenges in living with her in our house. It was a bad fit right from the beginning; she was very stressed by our household and in turn made everyone else anxious. We, the cats, and Gwen all made the best of it, but when we finally got her skin issues under control we realized that continuing for another decade or so wasn’t fair to anyone, especially Gwen herself. We figured finding her a better home was a longshot, but we had to at least try…

Apparently the universe was looking out for Gwen – a couple came to meet Gwen with their little Boykin Spaniel and everyone hit it off right away. She has been at their house for three weeks and has fit in wonderfully, and with thirty acres around her, she’s no longer on a hair trigger startling at any little noise. She hangs out with her new sister, and goes swimming, and watches TV in bed in the evenings. Her new family loves her, and she’s doing great… and she’s home.

We’re having to learn not to tense up when a car drives up the road next door, waiting for the explosion that will no longer come, and the cats are slowly learning to relax again. I really do miss her, but she’s so much better off. When I got the email that they wanted to make it ‘official’ I got a big lump in my throat… what a wonderful outcome.

All I ever wanted was for Gwen to be happy.

P.S> A big shout-out to Boykin Spaniel Rescue for helping to make this happen!
