This summer we gave Buddy away. He was a good dog, house trained and obedient, but he kept chewing the kids toys. I felt like I was losing $10 here and $20 there and I just couldn't take it anymore. We gave him to my friends mom. Her husband had recently passed away and her dog is getting up there so they wanted him for a companion for her. She spoils him rotten. He sleeps on her bed with her and she also cooks dinner for him every day. I'm glad he went to a good home. The kids have adjusted fine to him being gone. They miss him, but they are also happy that their toys don't get ruined anymore.
