FYI

Hi All, I will be stepping away and wanted thank the awesome folks here who have been part of my AARP online life 🤗 Got a very SAD email at 8am TODAY and just sitting here crying my eyes out and asking why? I will NEVER get close to another dog. I will ALWAYS treasure my time with ATHENA in between my tears. Took over a YEAR to stop crying when JEREMIAH never came back home after my idiot ex let him outside by himself knowing our boy like to take off. I searched and contacted animal control and spoke to our neighbors 😭 Anyway, I too left 6 months later while my ex slept NEVER to return to GEORGIA. Jeremiah was my best friend walking buddie 🙂 Athena's mom's email is below. Wish I could ADOPT her, but my STUDIO APARTMENT is way too small and way TOO MANY irresponsible dog owners out here. I hope they are able to REHOME her.

 

As for Athena I have a bit of sad news.

 

She attacked another dog and I am no longer bringing her to work since I can't trust her to behave.

 

We are actively working towards rehoming her.20210315_122017.jpg

@AARPRachelA your post means A LOT to me as you UNDERSTAND the DOGGIE connection. I told them I was not able to do the planters on Monday, was still crying. I am taking it ONE DAY AT A TIME. (((lots and lots of hugs))

Hi @Rhymesometimes it really means alot receiving your private messages of concern and now this post (((hugs))) You and @DeahWA took the time to reach out to a grieving old lady, thank you SO MUCH. Yes, ATHENA is a dog and not mine, but she was a FRIEND. One who ran over to me EVERY time I stopped by to work on the clinic's planters as a volunteer. It will NOT be the same without her. But like with JEREMIAH, they ADDED so much to my life and I can now SMILE when I think of them BOTH 🙂

Hi @DeahWA I will not be returning but wanted to thank @Rhymesometimes for taking the time to post. It takes a crisis to show who cares/lol. You guys were the only ones that do apart from my sweet daughter who video called on Monday. She knew how much I went through with losing JEREMIAH and it took over 9 YEARS for for me being willing to luv another furbaby. I don't regret meeting her, but girl, I think I drained all my tear ducts from when I got her mom's EMAIL at 8am Monday. I am still sad and having to make myself continue to volunteer there. No more having her welcome me as I walk in. Anyway, I am so glad you found a spot on the AARP board. You go girl!!!!  My time on it has ended. Happy writing (((lots and lots of hugs)))
