Default Update on teddy

There is a couple who are coming to see Teddy next weekend. Then they will take a week to talk about it and if they adopt him they will pick him up in January. I have such mixed feelings about this but I want to do what is best for Teddy. He is such a cute boy and I do love him. But it is so hard to have two dogs for me. Escpeciallly with him needing so much exercise. These people had their standard poodle for 17 years! She died 3 months ago. The woman from Poodle Rescue said the application was exemplary. Their poodle, Sadie, used to run with the husband until she was 10. I told him Teddy loves to run! I will keep you updated - have a wonderful Christmas/holiday everyone!

Sounds like a great home for Teddy. I am sure Teddy would love to have a jogging partner.

Just think of all the running he will do with his new owner.....and the fact that their poodle for 17 yrs!! They must be doing something right.

My heart goes out to you...its still hard even when you know its for the best. Once he is in his new home and they send you some happy pics it will ease your worry, Im sure .

Hugs!

I know this is terribly tough for you, but I also know that you are doing what is best for you and Teddy. Sometimes the things we must do can really hurt. This couple sound wonderful, Teddy will most likely take time to adjust and will miss you but in time will be his happy, loving self. Actually he may be more happy because he will get to run and get in the more exercise he needs. Bless you for doing the right thing for Teddy.

The couple is probably hoping so hard that Teddy is the one for them and will give him a wonderful home. You are very brave.

You are being very brave, and will do the best thing for him. This couple sound as if they may be that very best thing - and you love him enough to let him go, to run and play and be happy even if your heart is breaking. For a while it will be agony, but little by little you will feel better - you will no longer be worrying about what he is up to, nor feeling guilty when you are unable to give him the exercise he needs, and both of you will be less stressed, less anxious, more relaxed, and on the path to contentment. And we will be here to help along the way!
