Salutations to everyone!
My name is Aristophanes and I am incredibly new to the forums. Perhaps it is premature of me, but I thought I would take the time to introduce myself nonetheless. Sunday will be the day I bring home my new pup. As you can imagine I am incredibly excited about her and I cannot wait to have her home. For those of you who are curious, I am in the Chicagoland area. My purpose tonight is more so to thank you all for the already tons of help you've been to me. Being able to read through the forum posts, hearing your stories, your struggles, and triumphs have been a boon. At first I was afraid of the unique challenge of the breed, but having read through all of your stories, I feel confident in my decision, if not in my own intelligence.
