As the rain falls, so do the tears… those aren’t tears from a sad story of neglect or abuse, but tears from a story of a lifetime of love and a hard-to-say goodbye.
My name is Gertrude. My family called me ‘Gertie.’ I am 8 years old and have lived with my family since I was a puppy. They love me and I love them. They also love my daughter, Matilda, we call her Tillie for short. Tillie is just 5 years old and has been with me and our family since I had her. But, today we had to say goodbye to our family. Our daddy cried and it made us sad. He loves us, but he knows that as his job takes him overseas, there is no way for us Bulldogs to join the family. Our hearts are a little broken, but we promised Dad we would be strong and make him proud and would be SO GOOD for our new family. We hope our new family will love us both and will let us stay together forever. We have never been apart and that would just be too much to bear. Here is a little more about us:
I am 8 years old. I will actually be 9 on the 17th of September (… but who is counting?)
I am a beautiful fawn and white girl. I like people, kids, rubber toys, napping and EATING! Some may say I am a bit ‘fluffy’ (actually, this rescue lady said something about a diet, but then the other rescue guy with a goat-beard said ‘not if Dianne has anything to say about it’ – I don’t know who Dianne is, but I sure hope she has something to say about it… No diet! Girls my age should have to sacrifice with a diet! Geez! This is rescue not jail or diet camp!)
Well, we are both off to the doctor’s office tomorrow to get checked out, then we will be looking forward to meeting our future foster family and eventually our new forever family.
