He also happily accepted 4 new (little) family members without hesitation or jealousy. As long as someone played ball with him once in a while, he was a happy dog.
Unfortunately, he bit a little boy last night that was coming over to play. He needed 4 stitches in his upper lip. Maiyo was laying on the rug by the side door where the little boy was trying to come in, with the help of Tille. It all happened so fast and I'm not even sure if the "why" of the situation would make it any easier. But ever since our experience with Tobie and him biting so many people, we vowed to never live with that fear again. We simply have too many kids coming and going to constantly be in fear.
We love him so much and he was a great pet. We miss him already. Even with 4 kids, the house seems just a little empty today.
