It took her a week having waved goodbye to decide that actually, she'd really like to adopt Sacha, and as she is one of the Oldies Club fosterers, she's already home visited and all that stuff.
So, we shall meet on Thursday, when Zummerzet is next in Cornwall, and hand Sacha back! I think Az will probably be sad, but I can hardly deny Sacha this chance, it's exactly the adoring home with someone about most of the time and dog companionship that I was hoping to find for her.
From a purely selfish point of view, it will be easier even if Az does get depressed again: Az has just noticed that Sasha is in season, and I'm having to keep an eye on them. He waved goodbye to his plums a good 6 years ago so there is no chance at all of puppies, but I'm not sure how either of them would react to ending up tied, and anyway, a pair of mating dogs gives such a seedy air to a dining room... :-D
