I can't even flippin believe this. Literally no more than five minutes after I posted my last entry, the animal shelter called.
The vet was prepping our puppy for surgery and saw a sort of diarrhea type discharge. So, they tested her and it came back as Parvo.
I cannot believe this. I am so so sad- more for my kids than anything. I don't even know what I'm going to tell them. I asked the lady that called what they normally do now, and she said they will put her down.
Big Hunk said (unfortunately he's at work) that we should either tell the kids that she is sick and we can't adopt her (obviously leaving out the part that she will die) or that someone else adopted her. I don't know. Clearly the truth here is not an option.
We will go back down today to find another dog. We won't rush into our choice, but it breaks my heart that my kids have been counting down the minutes til we went to pick her up today.
Please pray for my kids, that God would comfort their hearts. I am so sad.
