Belly rubs and attention from everyone he met. He also loved playing with his friends, snuggling, riding in the car, and doing "crazy dog" (running in circles at top speed in the backyard).
He felt left out when Mom used the laptop or Dad played video games rather than interact with him
HOT DOGS! You have hot dogs??? Look, I'm sitting! Without you asking! I'm a good boy. Where's my hot dog??!!! He also loved bones from the butcher and pig ears
Everywhere he went
Waking himself up snoring
Ronan was at the Big House in Martinez, but the folks at the Berkeley Humane Society rescued him just before his time was up. My husband and I met Ronan (then named Tiny) at the shelter's meet and greet room, where we were won over when when he sat on my lap, stretched across and laid on my husband's at the same time, slobbering on and smiling at both of us.
We had 21 great months with Ronan. He was the most loving dog we've ever known; very cuddly and playful, and loved to be around people. He did have some issues: incompatibility with male dogs and fear of small spaces that made it nearly impossible to board him--but we would have gladly dealt with those the rest of his natural life. Ronan also had food aggression that stemmed from being a former stray, but we were told this could be reconditioned and would not escalate, so we enrolled him in obedience classes and trained him at home. But when he bit a friend in the face (non-food related) causing her serious injury, we made the heartbreaking decision to put Ronan down. It was the most difficult thing we've ever done, but behaviorists and our vet agreed that he would likely hurt someone again. As sweet as he was, there was something not right in his head. We love and miss our Labrakita boy more than words can express.
