Eve: Mama, we are going to live together forever, right? When I grow up to be an adult, I can still live with you, right?
Me: You can live with me as long as possible Eve.
Eve: Mama, you would get rid of me?
Me: NEVER, unless I didn't have a choice.
Eve: I choose to live with you mama. Forever.
Me: Forever is a really long time Baby Girl. Forever has different time frames for everyone. If you're 100 years old, your forever is just around the corner. If you're 2 years old, you got a long time till your forever. You just never know. What if I get sick and have to go to a nursing home? Life changes for dogs and it changes for people too. People get married and takes vows about forever. But then they get divorced.
Eve: Are you going to divorce me mama?
Me: Divorce is just for married people and we're not married.
Eve: So dogs don't really get forever homes?
Me: When we adopt out a dog, we absolutely hope and pray that it will be a home that can keep them the rest of their lives and they will never have to be without a home again. However, the reality is that many times a dog does have to get a new home again. We wish it wasn't so, but it is. That is why we always tell people that any dog who has been at Second Chance ALWAYS has a home here if they need us. Any dog can come back if they need to.
Eve: Mama, no matter where I am or where I live, I'll always be yours. You are my forever.
Me: You are my forever too Eve! I love you Baby Girl!
