Thanks. I really appreciate the sentiment. Ellie was a very sweet and cool dog. It was gutting to lose her and I miss her terribly. Anybody who's ever had a dog they loved and had to put down has probably been through this. After her, I can really see why people sort of fall in love with their Bulldogs and bull-and-terriers though.
That aside, I am starting to get excited to look forward. It helps keep my mind occupied on more positive things. Plus, I loved seeing how Ellie responded to Michael's style in particular (credit mainly going to Donna Matey) and am curious to see just how much I can build up a pup with that style from day one. It is also a way to improve myself as a handler in the interim.
Mostly though, thank you for the kind words and sentiment.
