I'm as guilty here as you are & should have stopped by a lot more too. It's just hard to do when you can't really get past the loss of your training buddy. You & I don't agree on many things, but I know you feel the same on this one.
At first-I did ask about her placing the dog, but she wanted him because he was such a big part of "his" life. (I almost should use his name-this isn't disguised at all.)
I have a month or two before Finny comes home. I've been borrowing dogs left & right & would happily spend some time with this dog. I also have friends with the same "minority breed" who would know someone wanting a dog of this caliber. I remember when he was a young pup training at Irish Hill & telling "him" "Here's the dog you've been waiting for" -not knowing how it all would go
Personally-I think he needs & deserves an active life-he has/had potential-with NO disrespect to "his" widow. She's a wonderful person & I am sure loves the dog.
I'm sure that you are raising some eyebrows with this post & I'll have :roll: in my direction too for posting, but I don't care. This is a worthwhile question.
