Over the years, rescues and humane societies have spent tens of thousands of hours and millions of dollars telling people to ‘rescue’ their dogs, but haven’t educated them on how to be responsible for them. If we spent just a fraction of the Humane Society of the United States’ advertising budget on teaching people how to be better dog owners I feel confident that in a few years we would see a marked decline in shelter intakes.

I don’t understand how a family can dump off their 13 year old dog to the shelter so they can go on vacation…I would do anything to have Kilo live that long 🙁

Kilo had another episode last night where he was more subdued. That was hours after our short run which he recovered from with no problem. He also had bad diarrhea at the time so he wasn’t himself. He wasn’t lethargic like last week though; when my brother walked in the house he jumped up to his feet and was barking when he heard him drive up. I’d like to hope he was just feeling off from the bad stomach :/

I’ve started keeping track of his resting heart and respiratory rate. It was a bit higher last night at 120/min but today it’s been around 100/min to 112/min. So nothing abnormal. Waiting on getting back to the ultrasound specialist. His respiratory has been in normal ranges.

Anyway we took it easy again today though we went for a short walk in the forest with Lola. Felt bad cause Kilo kept dropping a ball at my feet but I don’t want to overdue it when we don’t know what’s wrong 😭

Based on the research I've been doing, the Boston Terrier seems to be the best fitting dog for me temperament wise, but I'm worried about how their flatter faces might affect them. Do you know anything about them? Or know of any dogs with similar temperaments?

My good friend has one and he’s a sweet, snuggly dog. He doesn’t have the  bad loud breathing issues that some brachycephalic dogs have but I haven’t really seen him after he’s run around a lot. I have a cousin that got a boston terrier puppy last summer and it seemed like a better bred one (he’s very outdoorsy with hiking and hunting and whatnot) but it would really depend on the breeder and the lines I would think; some have no nose at all while others aren’t as bad. I would take into consideration future plans for the dog though, as they are more likely to overheat and have issues. I’m not sure about other breeds with similar temperaments; are you only looking for a small breed?
