Good for you and hubby. Let the issue be, block her emails and her number. Good luck with your girl, she is pretty :)

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

Well, I sent off the email. I realized that I don't actually have her mailing address anywhere, and I don't want to owe her anything, but I hope the message is still clear even though I am asking for (one!) reply. (And the rope will be sent without a return address from a different town)

Owner's Name,

Please be assured that Cece has found a stable and loving home. I must honestly say that I am uncomfortable with your request to visit and must decline. Please provide me with your mailing address so I can return your lead rope to you. After that, I must ask that you stop contacting me, and there will be no further communication.



(Haha yes my name is Zoe not 'Failbhe'... but when I went to register it was already taken. Failbhe (FAL-uh-vuh) is an old Celtic name that means lively/spritely wolf-slayer. Nobody can mess up phonics like the Celts...)

Well she replied with her address and

"instead of seeing Cece, could you send me a photo?"

It's a lot shorter than I feared it would be. I'll probably send her one (throw the kid a bone) eventually, but since she's staying with the trainer an extra week it'll be a little bit until I can take anything.

So, yeah... that's the plan - mail off that lead rope, and then send her a picture (no text, just image). Anything she sends back will not be replied to. Woohoo, drama (hopefully) over!

In all honesty I wouldn't even send her a picture. You stated that you were stopping all contact with her, stick to it.
