Big Time Loot and the 8-week X-ray
Walter received TWO care packages this week, one from wonderful Mary in California, who sent a box of goodies hand-selected by her four darlings! Walter KNEW the box was for him and enjoyed snorfling each and every package of treats, toys and goodies. He then patiently (sort of) waited for me to allow him to taste-test the treats and gave each toy a welcome mauling. He couldn't believe how much stuff there was!
As if that were not enough, my good friend Kelley, a bookseller at Barnes and Noble sent us the SWEETEST bag of special treats. Walter was totally into the gift-wrapping! His absolute favorite was the chicken strips that have Glucosamine in them, which is good for joints/hips. He snacked on one immediately - see his lil stuffed pug buddy saying "Hey! What about me!" THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, exciting/a little nerve-wracking news...Today we go to the vets to get Walter's 8-week xrays. This is to see if the pins are in fact where they're supposed to be, and if scar tissue has developed, and "accepted" the pins. Please send us some prayers if you have extra, for Walter's pins and for my ability to stay calm. Just walking into the vets now makes me start trembling.
