Ty Finds A Home!

It was starting to get surreal, almost mechanical. I would be talking to someone and I would remind
that person that my little dog Ty was looking for a home, and ask if they knew any great people looking for a great little dog. It was starting to feel like a marketing campaign. But I knew in my heart that finding him a home was the right thing for him, and the right thing for us.

One day I routinely bugged my sister to think of anyone she knew, and she said "actually, my old friend is looking for a little dog" and that was it. A long time friend of the family who I've known for 30 years. It doesn't get any better than that. It was four days of driving to make the delivery, but it was well worth it to find our little guy a great home.

So I take this opportunity now to tell the world that our beloved Ty now has a home! And his wonderful new owner has even opted to return him to his original name, Scout. When he came back to us, I didn't want to jeopardize our chances of finding him a home by confusing him with a different name. But all along I thought Scout was a better name for him, since he's so curious and outgoing.

It's hard to express our happiness ever the way everything turned out. People were telling us to compromise and just find him any home, but he's been part of our family, and he's the son of Lenny. We couldn't just send him out into the world and never know his fate.

A week ago I dropped him off, and from what I hear, he's been fitting in great with his new family.
