Not Looking Forward to This
« on: January 26, 2008, 11:04:08 AM »
We have a potential buyer coming to look at Marcie today (my Perchie).  I thought I would be okay with selling her, but now that there's a good chance she's actually leaving, I'm a mess.

The lady sounds like the perfect home, more time and attention than she gets here and a really nice facility. 

She's even bringing her trailer.   :shame:

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' - Theodore Roosevelt 1907

 :tissue: :tissue:  I know you're going to miss her, but you wouldn't have let her go unless it was to somebody who would love her, too.

Oh Kate, I'm sorry you're hurting.  Please try to focus on the wonderful memories that you have with Marcie.  You did well by her, putting her in a good home.
Hugs to you!

I was a basket case too when I  sold Kachina to a buyer out of state..
Loading her up on the trailer was the hardest part , as I fell apart saying good-by. :tissue:..
But once the new owners sent pictures of her- showing me how happy she was with her new mini friends, and how much they loved her, everything made perfect sence..
So hopefully these people will do the same for you.. 
I know it would make you feel better. :flower:
