Well after thinking it through and through I decided not to "apply" for the dog. I did a lot of thinking about the pooch, his well being as well as whether or not I would be suitable to take care of him. While I know I would be able to provide this boy with a wonderful home & be devoted to him, I just am not ready... When my spoo passed it really hit me hard... I just don't know if right now I am 100% ready for another dog (I initially was thinking more late winter early spring)...regardless, if I am still not 100% over my loss... I didn't know if I would be 100% of an awesome owner - I didn't want to risk that. Who knows it could have been a perfect match, maybe it would not have been, but I just was not yet sure if I was ready. That would not have been fair to him if I realized that after the fact so to speak... I do take comfort though knowing he is currently in loving hands of someone else...

I do thank all of you for your kind words, advice, opinions & laughs - I did laugh when reading through the one post from saramurphy! Too funny!!! It really is awesome to have a forum where you can get everyones opinions, advice etc... Thank you all.

I will be back with more questions within the next few months... There will be another spoo in my home in the somewhat near future... )

That was a generous and honest decision. When you are 100% ready to be open to the next dog, the right one will find you. We will be happy to hear about it when it happens.

Even funnier, my mom lives in Kings Park now. That is part of why I moved to Huntington. If you are coming to the island, let me know. Maybe we can meet for coffee.

Lawnguyland. Too funny. Am I the only one who never heard that before? (And in case there are others who never heard it before, Lawnguyland = Long Island)

I am in Massachusetts this weekend for obedience, rally and agility. Today I was talking to some people (poodle folks, of course) and the topic of the storm came up and they asked how long my power had been out (12 days as I have complained about in another thread). I asked how they knew I lost power and they said my accent was obviously from "lawnguy land." We had a rough couple of weeks, but it is good to now be getting back to normal. Things look really different around us since so many trees fell, but that is part of our new normal. Thank you for your kind offer of assistance.
