Although unintended, my post and the related comments created a seemingly uncontrollable situation where it will take an act of God to bring Monte back.
For this I need to publicly apologize to my wife, Lisa. She wanted nothing more than to take care of Monte for the rest of his life. We love him and know him better than anyone; one month ago we told people that Monte would not be a good diabetic alert dog. I let principle get in the way and will never be able to correct this unintended outcome.
I am truly indebted to everyone that supported us. Your positive comments are worth more than the loss of our forever dog. In a crisis, you can identify your true family; we will never forget your kind words.
We are searching for another opportunity to complete our mission of raising a guide dog. We will eventually be successful.
In the meantime if anyone needs a babysitter for their puppy or some training assistance, we are ready, willing, and able.
