Goodbye Roman

After much talk and NO looking, we finally found a home for Roman. He was just to much puppy for me to handle after having Stella. I always felt guilty because I was either neglecting his needs to take care of the kids needs or I was neglecting the kids needs to take care of Roman. I just had to much going on and couldn't live every day feeling like I'm not being a GREAT mother.

Roman now resides in Laguna Niguel with a family with two teenagers, 2 Great Danes, 1 little 10 lb dog, 2 cats, and a bird. He has had a lot of fun playing with the dogs and tormenting the cats and bird. He no longer sleeps in a crate. He has free reign on the house, and has a doggy door that he can go in and out of whenever he wants. The doggy door leads to a huge yard that he can run around in. He goes to work and goes to camping. He is in a great home and is adjusting well.

I miss my dog, he is the sweetest most loving giant lap dog ever. He was so great with the kids, he took so much abuse from them and loved them dearly. He was always ready to play. He loved going on walks to the ocean and playing in the water. He was very good at digging holes in the sand for the kids and loved chasing seagulls. He loved to play fetch even though he wasn't so good at it. He's such a social dog, and loves the dog park. He would always play chase with the other dogs but couldn't keep up, he was the big lanky goofey dog galloping slowly behind all the other dogs.

We miss Roman but know that his new family can take better care of him and love him just as much as we do.

Oh I'm so happy that you were able to find him such a great home... I'm sure that helps so much in having to say goodbye, as hard as it is.

We'll miss Roman when we visit, but know that this is the best decision all around. And it is good that you can visit him too.
