A sad day

A post by the momma:

This post is difficult to write...

We have unfortunately came to the difficult decision that our home is no longer the best home for Corbin.  We've thought about this for a while, but our life schedules and Corbin's needs just don't seem to match up right now.  We found out that we are expecting a baby and with this added responsibility and the limited amount of free time we will have to work with Corbin, it is in his best interest to find a new family.  He needs a family dedicated to his continued training and couch snuggling.  Also, Corbin is crated during the day, and the room we have designated for his crate will now need to be used as a baby room.  So, we simply won't have the room to care for him. 

You don't want me anymore?

Oh, April Fools.... we could never give up our monkey dog.
And, no, we are not expecting a child.
 
However, on a more serious note, many people do re-home their dogs due to the arrival of a new baby human.  If you, or someone you know, is expecting a child and nervous about adapting their dog to the new family member, please check out the posts from our friends at Love and a Six Foot Leash about how they're getting their dogs ready to welcome their new baby!

  20. You REALLY had me going there and I couldn't make any sense of it since giving up Corbin Monkey just because you are having a child seemed so out of character for what we know of you. Oh, whew!!! What a relief that this was a joke. What would I do without seeing Corbin in Blogville.
    I need a drink. . . of water, of course.

  24. You can't fool us - we knew from the very first few words that this just HAD to be a joke - Corbin, your humans love you too much to ever let the idea of giving you up a nanosecond of a thought.

    Happy April Fool's Day!

  25. Awwwwwwwwwwww Corbin, you bloomin trickster (and your mum!!!!). Our mum had tears in her eyes, was reaching for the tissues and freaking out. Oh My Dog. That is the best mum has been fooled for years and years and that's saying something cause she is pretty old!! Phew, mum's just made a cuppa (cause it's early morning here) to relax her nerves hehe. Take care mate. You've made our day cause we felt horrible and now we feel wonderful. See ya Studly. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  27. Oh Corbin, I was going to have my mom hop in the car to come and get you right away...until we scrolled down and saw it was only a joke. I've been looking for just the perfect brother so if your parents really want to get rid of you just let us know. We are just a few hours down the thruway so it wouldn't take long.
