Aww, I understand how you would feel this way, but I think you are great to give Gizmo a loving home. It is a very sad situation, and I'm sure it was an extremely hard decision for Rick and Dottie to make. They made this decision based on what was best for their lives and the lives of their bullies. They made this decision based on love. What is great is that they didn't get adopted out to strangers, they are with you and Chumley, and will continue to be loved by everyone on this site. Rick will be able to concentrate on his rehabilitation, and in getting stronger, and hopefully be able to walk again. He will be able to do this knowing his babies are both with loving people, who will take care of them, and give them a great home and life. He will be able to keep in touch with them through you and EBN, and pictures and updates, this must be a great relief to him, and I'm sure he will miss them, but can be happy and thankful that they are going to be safe, and loved. Bless you for taking Gizmo into your home, and enjoy her.
