As I get nearer and nearer to the inevitable, I find myself getting sadder and sadder.

I am going to miss my Cam-cam dancer so much when she is gone. I secretly hold out hope that she will fail out as a service dog and they will allow me to keep her. I know I'm dreaming because she is such a great girl.

I work very hard to not undermine her training in hopes of failure. That wouldn't be fair to her or New Horizons and then I would not even come close to being worthy of having her.

So we will continue to work on her skills and I will continue to dread her departure. At this time it looks as though she will be leaving early this summer.

Part of me wants to get this pain over with and part of me just wants to hold her as close to me as I can for as long as I can. How am I ever going to be able to say goodbye?

This is the dog who patched up and healed my shattered heart. I went from wondering if I could ever allow myself to love another animal as completely as I did Destiny to knowing that I have done just that.

Cami will be the last service dog I train until I retire, I think. However, those do sound like famous last words, eh?

did you miss?
