Last week I met up with Jesse, Gracie's new dad in a parking lot of a restaurant in northwest Toronto. Gracie lives in Oshawa and the vet who did the necessary surgery to repair her broken leg is further west and north of Toronto. Thankfully Gracie is a very relaxed traveller because her trip from home to vet is 123 km one way.
Xrays showed that her leg has healed very well so that combined with the fact that she has a forever home to call her own makes all the driving back and forth worth it.
When I returned Gracie to her dad the first thing he said was "hi beautiful" as he leaned over to look into the carrier.
I drove off fighting back tears. I was happy that Gracie's leg had healed and that she has a home with a very caring young man but I was sad that I won't likely see her again.
