I know it is the right thing to do for the dogs sake but seeing him go will be hard. We have a 12 month German shepherd who is much loved and kind.But he is lacking in walks and time as OH is taking more of my time OH loves the dog but doesn't know how to deal with him . So I contactedG S Rescue last week to see if they can rehome him. They told me today they have the perfect home for him and the couple are coming next week to see him if they like him( I'm sure they will he is a great and kindly dog )and I am happy he will go that day.I will be in bits but I know its the right thing to do .The plan is our son will take dad out and when they get back the dog will be gone.Any ideas on how to explain to oh if needed, think he may notice the dog has gone. We have wracked our brains but can't think of anything that will not distress oh. The truth is not an option.
