Tribute: This weekend tragedy found Frosted Faces Foundation. In the safe beautiful space where we promise family and good care for abandoned senior dogs, Todd lost his life.

It was sunset on Saturday, a cool breeze swept across our play yards and the Littles play group got one more rotation in the yard before bedtime. Todd was happily humping his friends and kennel staff went on to give assertive corrections verbally and with a squirt bottle. In a quick moment, his friends retaliated and a play yard supervisor jumped in and scooped Todd out of the commotion as quickly as anyone possibly could have. Although he was alert and seemingly fine for a moment, he passed away in her arms within minutes. He had no puncture wounds and the vet suggested he may have broken his neck.

Andy and I were not at FFF when this happened but rushed back immediately to find a Kennel Manager sobbing over Todd's tiny body on the couch. In the car where Todd rode from the shelter to FFF just a week earlier falsely promised a bright future, I drove his lifeless body cradled in my arms to Animal Emergency Clinic of San Diego to be put in a freezer.

On Labor Day he went to Julian, CA and rode in a stroller down Main Street with Romy Sonderegger. They got some cheese sticks from the deli to snack on, and then ran around in the grass of a small park. Just two days before Todd's death, he had dental surgery and got neutered at College Animal Hospital. He had FFF's record number of teeth extracted - 35.

We struggle with all of the "what ifs." We weren't going to rescue Todd when we did. I had all the paperwork done for Padre and I couldn't get Todd off my mind, so I went back and asked them to exit him also. What if we had left him to be adopted? How could a family keep Todd alive all this time in such poor condition, and we, the most thoughtful collection of good-hearted people could not protect him? What if they had claimed him? What if they had never lost him?

Earlier in the day Saturday he was held by countless people at Open House, and we laughed as he tried to use the heightened laps of volunteers to take advantage of his Frosted friends and hop on their backs. What if we had just pulled Todd out of the play yard for being persistent instead of making corrections? What if one of the applicants interested in him had come to adopt him sooner? We all feel accountable, and yet, we know that these terrible things do happen. As one volunteer said, "We have to remember that no matter how much we convince ourselves that dogs are our surrogate children, they are still 'animals' at their core."

I took these photos of Todd on Saturday in hopes of adding them to his adoption profile to find him the perfect loving family. Only hours later they became a final memory of how his eyes sparkled with mischief and curiosity.

I beg that you respect our transparency and regard Todd's legacy as a reminder that life is so very fragile. xo

We loved you, Toddler. We are so sorry.
