I literally gasped when I saw his little face. HIS EARS ARE AS BIG AS HIS FACE.That was Frodo. He was a 5 lb. chihuahua and me and my wife's first "baby" lol. We got him right after we met and he passed away in 2017 a few months after our son was born. This photo is from 2012. The one with the fireplace is from 2014.
Frodo was cute but hated anyone he didn't know. He earned nicknames such as "F-", "loose screw", "Fruitloop" and "That evil dog." We loved him to death!
this photo had to be the inspiration for this emoji:

I'm so sorry Lycee! I'm crying for you!Oh yeah I never updated here. CW: Death
On 16 Jan 2021, Banjo crossed the rainbow bridge. The shelter made the decision for us to have him put down. His issues were not behavioral or trainable. They were clinical and he would bite unprovoked so he was a liability. His poor brain wasn't wired right and even on high dose of meds, he couldn't settle. The morning he was put down, he got a double dose of them so 600mg gabapentin and 300mg trazadone and he still could not settle and just exist. We had a vet come to my best friend's house and the four of us surrounded him to say good bye. The vet who came asked for a full history so she could do it with a clear conscience since he was only 1.5 years old. And for a moment, it looked like she was trying to figure out if she could save him and take him home. We all tried so hard to save him and give him a good life but ultimately he couldn't live a quality life.
Almost everyone has understood the decision. And my best friend said she is happy that we had the shared experience of living with him and seeing how difficult it was to exist with him. It was hard. But Leggy Boi was loved and never had to enter the shelter or the vet's office again.
In his memory, Boyfriend and I donated 4 huge bags of food to the pantry at the shelter for pets in need. All of his meds also went to the shelter. Along with his muzzles and the lickmat we had to give him.
In his memory, the vet who put him down donated to the animal shelter near him (45min away from the shelter we got him at).
In his memory, a friend of our named a portion of the trail on their property for him. So there's a Banjo's Bend in northwestern Maine and he can run free thru the woods there.
Muzzle training Banjo helped me win the argument that we should muzzle train Moo. I think all dogs should be muzzle trained and the stigma around them removed. A muzzled dog doesn't mean a bad dog.I'm so sorry Lycee! I'm crying for you!
We are muzzle training Timber because he gets super excited and nervous when meeting new people. He has bit a couple times before the muzzle, no blood drawn. They were more nervous nips than aggressive biting.....but still.... This exact scenario is what I want to avoid at all costs. Thankfully, once he is able to meet people and calm down, he is fine with them and I can take the muzzle off. We are working with him daily. I fully understand your position and I only hope that I don't have to endure it. These dogs are our family. But, living a life on drugs to try to keep them calm is no way for them to live. I hope you can find a new family member when you are ready. It's always a tough decision.
