She is already up and about a bit more, and even wants to “play” more often. That being said, fate played a roll once again, just as it did in sending her to the back door of our new address.

A long-time friend of ours came into town for another friend’s wedding. Before leaving home, she saw the notices about Shade, came by for dinner, and that was that.

Elyn Selu will take Shade home by plane this coming weekend. Additional funds were donated to purchase a Delta Airways certified, padded and ventilated, carrying case for Shade to ride with Elyn. Funds were also gathered to pay for an animal companion to ride with the owner. Neither Elyn nor us would ever let a family member ride in a cargo hold!

We are sad to see Shade go, for we have become (too) attached to her. We are overjoyed that she will have a new home and life with someone who shares our high values for four-footer family members. All of our blessings go with both of them! We hope that you wish them well, as well. Elyn is a saint in our books… or will be!
