Biscuit's Last Month

Biscuit Notes:  I have been learning and growing so much!  I outgrew another vest and it is harder and harder to fit under tables.  However, I am very very well behaved and have even learned to curb the urge to  chase every ball I see AND running little kids.  I like when the kids come to me and give me lots and lots of attention.  I was doing great and then life got a little crazy.......

Lia's Notes:  The puppy is gone.  I wonder how long it will be for this time?  I am enjoying the quiet while I can, but I do miss him.  A little.  

Susan's Notes:  Oprah Winfrey once said “I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.”  This past month I have had to make some very hard decisions.  I am incredibly excited to announce that I will be an elementary school librarian for McKinney School District in McKinney, Texas for 2014 and onwards. I can't wait to see what the future brings.  I am full of nervousness, excitement, and overwhelmed with emotions. I know I am leaving behind a school and community with wonderful students, staff, neighbors, friends, and more.  I have loved my years in Pennsylvania and hope to stay in touch with the great people I have come to know there.  
What about Biscuit and Lia?  Lia will join me in Texas.  Biscuit was never mine to keep and unfortunately he could not move with me to Texas.  He returned to PAWS HQ in Michigan last week and though they could see what a great dog he was, unfortunately routine X-Rays revealed some hip troubles which disqualified him from future service dog efforts.  He will serve and live out his years as a family pet, and believe me he will be VERY happy in that role.  He will not miss the vest (he always hated it!) and will have more freedom to run around, chase kids and play.  Someone might even let him sit on the couch.  He is in good hands and will be a very happy pup.  I am grateful for the time, adventures, experiences and most of all the chance to LEARN that I had with Biscuit.
