Like his dog, where she is and why he can't see her. When my father became incapable of caring for himself and his little dog, we moved him into assisted living and the dog ( as well as his license and car) were taken from him. His dog has been with a friend, but we are adopting her out because the doctors suggest this is best. They say that if he were allowed to see the dog then he would obsess about the next time he got to see her, and why he can't have her, etc. Do you have any thoughts or experience with this? We obviously want to do the right thing and it's sad for us to know how much he misses her, but we are also the ones who he takes his anger and frustration out on, and we ( my brother and I)don't forsee it getting any better.
