This is Jackson.
He is 12. He has been a vital part of our family for 11 years and is our oldest “baby.” He’s not going to Belgium with us. My husband’s parents are going to love and spoil him while we are gone. They came to see us this weekend and left today. We had to say goodbye to our sweet little old man-dog as his adventure is beginning a little sooner than ours. My heart is hurting because I know he doesn’t understand what’s going on. We know they will treat him even better than we do, though, so hopefully this transition will be harder on us than it is on him.
This is genuinely the hardest part of our entire adventure, so we are now ready to leave for our grand European adventure.
