Tribute: On Monday, December 31st, just before the stroke of midnight we fulfilled our promise to Titan/Louie/John Adams.

Titan was a "guard dog" for a business that had recently been sold and the new management surrendered him and his two brothers to the shelter. On September 18th, Carson Shelter sent out a plea to rescues to exit 10 year old Titan by the end of the business day or he would be euthanized due to his poor condition. We immediately committed to him and just a few days later returned for his two brothers- the trio we have come to know as the "Guard Dogs, " Louie, Huey, and Dewey.

We made them all better with surgeries and medications, soft beds and so many cuddles. These boys likely never guarded anything a day in their lives and yet somehow persevered for years together to become Frosted Faces and share boundless love they'd been denied.

Tiny but tough FFF volunteer, Christina, was the first to bring home one of the gigantic lovebug "Guard Dogs." To know someone like Christina bursting with love and compassion for this giant neglected bully is an honor. The proof is in the pictures, he was very much part of their family with a whole new wardrobe, toys, and sharing a human bed every night. She renamed him John Adams and it was THE perfect name.

On the New Year's Eve Day John Adams was rushed to VCA Animal Medical Center of El Cajon for sudden labored breathing. As the day went on diagnostics showed that John likely had lung cancer and they could not keep him comfortable with an oxygen saturation of only 70%. Christina and her mom sobbed over John as they realized they had to let him go. Coincidentally, Christina's mom is also battling lung cancer and it helped them to empathize with John so that they could relieve him sooner than later.

It was because it was unexpected and it was unfair after the horrible life John lived that we felt we had finally righted-- our hearts writhe for answers and justice.

Christina shared, "My mom and I are still crying.

We know that it was meant to be. I initially went looking for Dewey and came away with the biggest and goofiest of the brothers.

He was so amazing and hilarious. We loved him so much and are shocked at how short our time with him actually was. We are calling him our holiday dog. We got him before Thanksgiving and lost him a week after Christmas.

He had the biggest personality. Looking up at us with his cross eyed face holding some sort of stuffed item in his mouth.

My heart is so broken right now and at the same time I am so grateful to have had him. We are devastated."

Tribute: We are so sorry to report we have suffered a couple devastating losses over the holiday break. On December 24th, 2018 we fulfilled our promise to 10 year old Dill.

He had a successful dental surgery, the light returned to his eyes on a fun Thanksgiving Frosted Fling, and just days later he found family. On December 23rd Dill had labored breathing and we hospitalized him at VCA Animal Medical Center of El Cajon for the night and transferred him to San Diego Bay Animal Hospital on Christmas Eve Day. Upon rescue his lungs looked mildly concerning, but nothing that affected his quality of life. New x-rays showed what looked like lung cancer or horrendous pneumonia and we struggled to keep Dill comfortable in oxygen so we were advised to let him go.

Dill was always frail, maybe even slightly dull when left to his own devices, but when we leashed him up he would trot right along! (There is video of him "running" while in the care of FFF in the comments.) He also was always hungry and we never had trouble finding things for him to eat. Heck! Our fingers and his own toes looked like yummy sausages! (We have included a funny video in the comments of that as well.) Dill's best friends were Frosted Face Morty and his new sister Frosted Face Journey. He always found them to share a bed.

His mom shares,
"We are heartbroken to report that we decided to free Dill Pickle from his crooked little body today. It was lung cancer. Not an infection that we thought could be cured. We loved him deeply for just 20 days. His portrait had just gone up on the family wall. He will never be forgotten. He was truly our littlest angel."

Tribute: When Phenris was scheduled for euthanasia at the shelter and FFF could not possibly handle one more teeny tiny dog over capacity we pleaded for a foster. What he won was better... Bert & Kris offered to be his FOREVER Fosters- and we sprung him immediately. They weren't looking for another dog, but their hearts are too big, and the fun they have with their dogs is even bigger!

"Phenris, Phen phen, Phee Phee, Pheniculous, the Boss, Wookie...
I know we take these seniors on knowing ahead of time it may only be a short time...but I really wasn't expecting this feisty, energetic guy to get a report from the vet Friday telling us that the mass in his abdomen was the size of an orange and his lungs and abdomen were filled with fluid. Frosted Faces being the incredible organization they are agreed to tap his belly and see what that would get us.
3 days of bliss! Hot dogs, bacon, chicken, chasing squirrels, playing with his favorite toys, napping on his pillow, but declining again quickly.

We said goodbye in our room on the bed cuddled and hugged. We already miss him so much. For such a little guy he has left a huge hole
