The Travelin’ ManPosted: January 13, 2008
Life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to. Gail asked me if I was going to write about it. She thought I would have to write about it. She’s right. I have to write about it. Her suggestion for the blog entry’s title is All’s Well That Ends Well. It is my sincere wish this happens. Panchen is now with three ‘of his clan’ – as Ceese would say – and Susan. He’s been there less than 24 hours. I am grateful he’s there. I’m grateful the light bulb finally went on in the empty attic that is my brain. There will be adjustments, things to work through. Panchen is 11 years old. He’s blind. He’s been passed hither and yon. I think it’s important to document this (hopefully successful) transition. It may provide ideas, answers, hope, help and inspiration for others in similar situations. I’ll be keeping the ongoing exchange between Susan and myself, along with helpful hints from Vickie (who has fostered a blind dog, penned Lessons From A Blind Dog and successfully placed Magoo in his forever home) right here on Panchen The Travelin’ Man’s Page.
Rinchen is in the dog bed, Panchen looking on. Next is Sammy and on the far right is Raji.
