It’s been three weeks since I passed my home interview and I’m still waiting for a puppy assignment.  I have forgotten just how difficult this part is.  The anticipation ravages my mind.  I spend all day thinking about what his name will be, what he will look like, and all the adventures we will take together.  I keep talking myself out of going to classes on Wednesdays because I will just go a little too puppy crazy if I attend classes without one of my own.  I think I’m literally going crazy!

I’ve been taking the last few weeks one day at a time.  I realize my life will change drastically when my boy arrives, so I’m enjoying “me” moments while I still have them.  He will literally become an attatchment of myself.  He will go everywhere with me (well, we’re still working on my work.)  I am so excited for all the adventures and all the training opportunities that are ahead.  I’ve also been thanking God daily for bringing me back you puppy raising.  And I’ve also been praying for the next year and a half.  It’s been a long time since I’ve had a pup of my own and since I’m raising for a new school, I’m starting from scratch.  I think I’ve forgotten nearly everything,  But one thing I will never forget, is the feeling that I am doing something awesome and powerful for someone else.  I truly love what I do.  I have the best (volunteer) job anyone could ever ask for.  I will gladly break my own heart to complete someone elses.  This is what I was meant to do.

So the waiting part really stinks, but I know I need to remain patient and savor these last dogless days or weeks, because chaos awaits me.  But with that chaos brings a lot of awesome memories and a new chapter in my life.  I’m ready for it, whenever it finds me.  Until then I’ll be waiting.

  1. Hey – I just read your comment on my blog. I thought of you earlier this week and hoped that you would have news too. Keeping good thoughts that your phone will ring sooooon!!! If it is any help, I do know CCI has a lot of hosting events they are doing on multiple weekends coming up. Maybe it is just crazy timing down there. Keep positive and don’t hesitate to check-in with Lisa too. She is amazing.

    • Thanks for the encouragement! I have been chatting with LIsa on a weekly basis. I was going to come down to Tillman’s birthday and do the hockey game but life has thrown a curve ball as I lost my beloved 12 year old Beagle yesterday to cancer. I will be taking Tillman the 8th through the 10th so I will get my puppy fix then. I’m learning patience every day, hoping that I hear something soon. I’m sure things are just crazy busy and I’m sure there are people ahead of me waiting for a puppy too. Like I said I did send an email to Carina today just to check in, but I have faith that the perfect puppy for me will be assigned in God’s perfect timing. Thanks again for the encouragement and I will be thinking of you all in the next few weeks!
