I picked the little guy up last night. He was very worn out after such a long trip. He is in pretty rough shape. He is very thin and has a poor coat along with several tumors and dental issues...he also has some vestibular issues...he falls over a lot and I wonder about cognitive issues as well because he will circle repeatedly like he is in a daze...he was pretty dehydrated, so he is getting sub-q fluids several times daily...he is sooooo hungry...I have been giving him several small meals in order to keep him from throwing up...thankfully he is eating well and he will be seeing the vet this week for a full screening...I wouldn't be surprised if his blood work reveals some kidney issues...whatever happens, we will deal with it...all in all, he is a sweet boy and a wonderful cuddler...he spent his first night sleeping with his head on my shoulder, completely wrapped in his blankets...I'm hoping that most of his health issues can be treated with medication, good diet, and lot's of love...he seems to be becoming more alert and aware of his surroundings...he loves lying in the sunshine in front of the french doors...he has spent most of the afternoon cuddled up there...I have taken pictures...he is a tuffy...he turns his head everytime I have the camera pointed at him..his vision must be better than we thought...I am guessing he is every bit of 16 and he has had a hard life...that is all behind him now...big thanks to Tessa, her Mom Wendy and all of the folks that pitched in to get him here! Pictures coming as soon as I get back to my good computer & high speed connection!
