We’ve decided that Max has to go. Kate has been calling no-kill shelters this week, and it’s time for him to go. We can’t wait around for someone to adopt him. After the move out of Savage to Chaska, his peeing issues stopped until recently. Now he’s peeing in the house again. That means it’s time for him to go. So be it. I’ll miss the guy a great deal, and it’ll be tough to see him go, but it’s for the best. He’s not happy in the environment and he needs a better situation.
With him gone, we’ll be down to four. Kate still thinks that’s too many (and I agree), but I want to see how things go after Max is gone. Happy’s getting up there in the years and has been losing weight at a pretty good clip, so I can’t imagine that he’ll be around too much longer. So that would get us down to three, which is a much more manageable number — and who the hell knows how long Vinnie will last after Happy’s gone? He might die of a broken heart.
