Yesterday was a sad day for our family as we contemplated the very real possibility that Blue will not be able to travel to Okinawa with us. I was consumed by worry. Where would he go? Who would take him? Would he find a good home?
That evening, I sent an e-mail to a select few, explaining our situation and asking recipients to consider fostering Blue until we return–our Plan B. I was asking for a substantial undertaking and a considerable commitment. A tall order.
Within minutes of my pressing the send button, three people responded. One who was certain they wanted to be our Plan B; one who was reasonably certain they wanted to be our Plan B; and, one who asked after Blue’s ability to get along with a mastiff and two elderly cats.
Our family is grateful. Thank you.
