Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing!

Goodbye Briggs:(

So even after potting training, behavior training, having chewed up everything from shoes to couches none of that would have made us get rid of Briggs. It came down to the nipping at the kids and drawing blood on three of them that made us finally realize that we had to say goodbye to our family dog Briggs, or Briggers as we loved calling him! We took him back to the humane society today and cried pretty much the rest of the day on and off. Out of all the family it was Kenzie and I who had the hardest time, I think partly because he would sleep with me when Jason was gone during the week and Kenzie always played and loved on him the most. I had no idea how hard it would be.....I bawled like a baby. We are all praying that some hunter or family without small children will come and fall in love with him because for the most part he is an awesome dog! We went through all the hard stuff with him and still fell absolutely in love with him. He became part of our family. I must say though that I love my kids more than the dog and that is what it came down to....keeping them safe. He was getting way to aggressive and very territorial. As for getting another dog....I doubt that will happen any time soon, but atleast I know now that I am a dog person and I love them! They really do complete a family....he will surely be missed:(

Awe... that is so sad. Especially after potty training him (thats the worst part). Better to be safe though. Way to make the right decision. :)
