As most of you know I lost my boy Sawyer to Lymphoma on 08/13/07. My husband swore up and down that he didn't want another dog. My daughter said the same thing. Lately my hubby keeps playing with Luna and says that its not the same,...Luna is mine and Codi's and that he misses his boy. I asked him point blank if he wants to adopt another Boxer and he said yea but not before spring. The problem is he doesn't want to go through the hassel of re-applying through the organization we went through before (although I didn't think it was that bad at all compared to some of the horror stories I've heard from others). He says that they trusted us enough before and that we are taking great care of Luna so they should automatically trust us again. I've tried to explain that its not that easy, that many people have life-changing events happen between adoptions and that though we qualified before we may not now but maybe he's just got a hard head and it just doesn't get through???? We've looked at other sites as well but then we would have to apply with another rescue and work with new people. Have any advice??
