Chase's first broken heart

Well, it's official - Clara is allergic to dogs. There's a chance that we could find a different breed with hair instead of fur (did you know there was such a difference? I sure didn't). But that won't be happening for a long time - I'm thinking years. We'll just have to observe Clara and see how she reacts around dogs for a while. Anyway, poor Chase is really sad. He woke up at 5:00 this morning (as usual) and was extra lonely without his dog to keep him company (we opt to sleep in 'till Clara wakes up arund 7:00). He went downstairs alone and wrote Leia a long sad "I miss you" letter and drew a picture of her. When Brian and I saw it we felt so bad! I told him his pain was understandable, but each day should get a little easier. I felt like I was consoling a break-up or something! And when trying to get over someone there's nothing better than finding someone else right? So it looks like we'll be getting Chase a lizard or turtle or something like that. We were fortunate to find Leia a really good home, but we'll sure miss her. So long, Leia.

  1. Oh I'm so sad for Chase, Thats a difficult one. Maybe he's too old to go to "Build a Bear" only build a puppy and have that to put in his room??
