My stomach lurched just a bit when I opened the envelope from CCI and saw that the subject was Dionne’s upcoming turn-in to the Oceanside center. For a moment, I feared that the start of her Advanced Training had been moved up three months sooner than the date we were given when we received her last December. I’ve heard of this happening to puppy-raisers, on rare occasions, and it’s brutal.
But no. The date of her turn-in remains Friday, May 16. That’s six months off.
Yet somehow, creepily, it feels like it’s right around the corner.
