Dexter is no longer with us...

Dexter had been a very difficult dog during all of his 6 years with us. He had become increasingly aggressive and cantankerous over the last few months. His behavior became threatening to our family's safety and welfare. It is with great sadness that we had to euthanize him yesterday. We truly loved him in spite of his faults and tried our best to work accommodate our lives around his unusual quirky behavior. We could not wash or brush him as he would growl and attempt to bite us. We could not have him anywhere in sight of the vacuum or any watering the garden as he would bark and grab the hoses frantically. His growling and aggressiveness escalated and progressed to unpredictable snapping at us with no provocation. We recently became afraid to even pet him. This is what led us to our decision to take him to the vet and have a discussion about what could help him. We came to the sad conclusion that he presented a danger to our family, friends and anyone he might encounter. We will miss the very cute and endearing aspects of his personality and the times he used to cuddle on our laps for hours.
