Earlier this month I wrote About the Boxer Puppy I was really looking forward to the new addition but today I found out earlier today that there will be no puppies.
Dakota had an x-ray to determine how many there were only to discover that she had absorbed her pregnancy. That means I will be waiting until next spring and hopefully with the help of progesterone Dakota will retain her pregnancy this time.
I have mixed feelings about this news. I was really exited about the prospect of getting a puppy related to my beloved Jynx. Then I found out the due date for this event was to be Halloween.
To say that information didn't chill me to the bone would be a huge lie. It really made me nervous. Wondering if this puppies whole life she would be a constant reminder of that day I want to forget the most. I just couldn't help but thing this weird coincidence must somehow have some hidden message or was it just a big cosmic joke.
Now, I don't have to worry about this prospect at all. The odds are by the time there is a next litter I will have totally forgotten this near brush with fate. Or will I?
All I know for sure is that I am torn. I really needed the distraction of this puppy. Now I wonder if it hasn't all been ruined. It really sucks to have one day have such power in my life. I would give almost anything to not give a rip one way or another about Halloween.
