Some Things Just Aren't Meant to Be

Just wanted you all to know that Tori and Spunky couldn't seem to manage to get things worked out between them. After giving them 3 weeks together and still having daily "fights" we decided it was best for him to find a different forever home. So, that cute, sweet, feisty little thing is now back receiving Jan's TLC. We're disappointed it didn't work out, but we feel we did the right thing for all concerned.

I am WAY behind on threads here from the holidays, I had no idea you had a new puppy, but Leslie, , you are 110% right, some things are just not meant to be and it takes alot of wisdom and courage to realize these things and make things right. Some dogs just do not get along with certain other dogs for whatever reason, I know Gucci dislikes a few of my friends' dogs (one in particular she bullies like crazy to the point of embarrassment!), and its not like I can make her like every single dog she meets..

But I could not spend every single day breaking up fights and resolving conflict, either, You are doing the right thing.

Leslie, I'm sorry it didn't work out. It takes a strong person to know when to give something up.

Leslie. I know how hard this was for you but I really think you made the right decision for both Tori and this little boy.

i wrote this to Leslie, but I want to mention it here too. We almost gave Cash back. He seemed to be torturing Jasper. But, DH put his foot down and said "this isn't a pair of shoes you can just return" I was very hurt,but saw his point too. I love Cash to pieces and he and Jasper have found a way to co-exist and even play from time to time and I do think they love eachother now. But I have often wondered if they both would have been happier dogs if they were better suited to each other. If Cash had a real playmate and Jasper had a submissive little girl he could protect.

So I applaud you Leslie. It was not an easy thing to do. But I think you could tell that it wasn't meant to be.




Missy, Jasper & Cash

I'm sorry! My two previous maltese never got along. They learned to coexist and tolerate eachother over the years, but they never ever played together and couldn't seem to enjoy a friendly relationship. It just seemed they weren't compatible!

It was very unselfish of you to make that decision Leslie. I know you though long and hard about it and I'm sure it was not easy. But both pups will be happier in the long run. Maybe you will find a new special friend for Tori in the future. I'm sure Jan will find Spunky a great forever home too.
