I know I can seem standoffish in not replying to every comment, but I really do appreciate all your kind words of praise (and criticism). So I took this pretty picture to the point of being almost shamefully cute for all of you
I don't think it seems standoffish to not reply to all comments. When you get a lot of comments it's overwhelming to try and respond to each of them especially if most of them are just comments saying how awesome the thing is. Those are really nice to get, but there's not much you can say in response other than "thanks!" I know I've started to mostly respond to comments that include a question but not much to other comments even though I definitely read all of them
This picture is adorable, by the way. I'm watching the auction for her, but I'm sure it will go far out of my price range. I hope it does anyway! You deserve far more for her than I can afford to spend.
