Well it Nakita won’t be joining our family.
It seems that someone else got their application in a few weeks earlier and decided today that they wanted her.
Never mind that SHE wanted US,
never mind that the STUPID Elton John song about Nikita has been playing in my head for 5 days now, yes it's spelled differently but it sounds the same, and I can't turn it off!!

(and did I mention that the shelter director commented on how much Nakita liked US?)
Not that I’m bitter or upset or anything. I’m sure she went to a very wonderful all American family who will adore here and love her forever, and get her a heated water dish and a very trendy dog couch, and organic food.
And really, there is no reason to be sad or upset when there are much much worse things in the this world than not getting a dog.
There are sick people~
there are poor people~
there are people without homes~
there are people that think that gas station cappuccino is real coffee~
It will be fine, someday a dog who needs us will come along, a wonderful charming dog,
Is there a dog fairy out there who can bring us our perfect dog?
I know—“chin up” “ this too shall pass” “ if it’s meant to be then it’s meant to be”
Blah blah blah
As soon as I get over the whole suckingness of it I’ll be fine. I always do land on my feet………….. sometime after I’ve landed on my butt, my head and a couple of sore knees.

Aww! Never mind, there is an even better and more deserving puppy dog out there just waiting for all the love you have stored up. I feel fate working her hand here.

Sorry that you didn't get her. Check www.staar.org. I am a volunteer for that organization.

I am so sorry about the dog, and I hope you can find another that will be just as much a part of your family.

OK, so I know how this story ends so I am not going to bother to be sympathetic. Mare, the photo of the abandoned dog biscuit? You are shameless!

Guess that's one of those qualities of yours that I love. Unabashed shamelessness. Well done.
