Sounds morbid, but we had hoped that one morning he wouldn't get up and have died in his sleep. 10 months ago the vet said that rarely happens and most dogs put up a fight that forces you to make that decision. Guess the expert was right.
We are looking a some puppies online.... i'm sure that will help, but it won't help our house or sleep patterns any.... haha We have both been dreading getting a puppy. We fear we won't get the perfect dog again. Hopefully our training played a big role in his behavior. Probably won't get a puppy for a few months though.
