It came up in conversation that she had been praying for a Labrador. Interestingly, I'd been praying for a good new home for Shadow. Hard as I've tried, I've just never bonded with him.
After the initial awkward conversation about it, we were both thrilled that it looked like we were the answer to each others' prayers.
Keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't come back this time!!
He looks pretty happy at his new place. :)
