Thanks guys....I knew you guys would love this story.
To quote one of my favorite movies The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, "Everything will turn out alright in the end. And if it's not alright, then trust me, it's not the end yet."
It wasn't the end for Charlie who suffered in his last home, but I hope this home turns out to be the home he was always intended for. I will definitely ask the new owners to take some video of Christmas morning when the girls find out Charlie is theirs and doesn't just live at the trainer's.
In the meantime, I uploaded this short clip of Emma taking a lesson on Charlie off the longe line. It's not great quality, but nonetheless pretty darn adorable.
