    I'm SO GLAD we kept him!! We were the ones who got the Pug puppy and Ponza was upset and snapped at my daughter when she hugged him when he was already upset. The Pug puppy found a new (and great) home, just FYI.

    In any case, Ponza has reverted back to his sweet, tolerant self. The kids are learning not to throw themselves on him when he's sleeping - more as a precaution than anything because in a not upset state, I really don't think he'd ever snap. I've instated the NILF methods. He really responds well. And I regularly work on commands, etc. and have the kids do this too (as well as the kids also preparing his food - with my supervision) to reinforce their place above him in the pack.

    Thanks for all of your help and support. I'm glad to say things are back to normal and we're happy to have our baby at home where he belongs.

    I remember your original post. I am so glad everything worked out so well. Congrats for all the hard work you have done. I know how upsetting it is when I child is snaped at. I am glad your leap of faith paid off.
