    Tony-pup update

    Some of you may have seen this on FB. Tony is now posted on petfinder. He and Willy are NOT getting along. I've spoken with 3 trainers, and while I am working on the issue, it is a long term project. I'm not sure I am up to it at this time. Tony will do better in a home where he is the only pet.

    I am very very sad about this. How I WISH it would work, he is a nice boy!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    At least you got him out of that pesky situation he was in! You did your part.
    You can't help it if he just doesn't fit. He'll make a wonderful dog for some lucky person.
    Best of luck to Tony!

    Don't feel bad! You SAVED him, and he will be forever grateful of that. Don't beat yourself up, you're doing him AND willy a favor!

    Oh, I am so sorry it didn't work out for Tony. Everyone should be very grateful for all you did to improve his
    condition in life, and you did a lot. Getting him cleaned up & neutered makes him a better candidate for long term
    adoption as an only pet.

    Agree agree! You rescued him from a very difficult situation. You've seen to his health care and grooming needs. Maybe he needs to be someone's "only". He will make a wonderful pet for someone.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I'm sorry. I'm with the rest of the folks who said you SAVED him. The time and effort you put forth on him will help him be a better dog and be more adoptable. He is so much better now than when you first got him. Still, I understand that you're sorry it has to be this way.

    He is going to make someone a very good dog, and has come such a long way since you first found him. No one will blame you, and not every situation is right for every dog.

    I'm sorry Tony isn't going to work out. You did save him from a bad situation and are making him ready for a great home.
