So Much Sassafrass!
Sorry for another long-time posting, I spent this week catching up from last! I tell you what guys, our pal Walter has hit a new level of health! Everyone is in unanimous agreement. He all of a sudden started eating more (He'd leave his bowl full almost all the time and just take treats, maybe nibble at his food) but now he's clearing the bowl out and its everything we can do to keep him from standing on his hind legs! Thats right!!!! I came in and walter was so busy sassing me "get me out of scamperland! Now!!" and he stood full weight on his hind legs. I nearly fell over rushing to him so he would get back off!! Also, he wants to RACE around the backyard. It's actually problematic. I tell you what, he gets that new shoe this next week and it isn't a moment too soon! I can hardly get a picture of him, he's permanently on the move. But look how well his hair is growing in!! AND, check out that back foot!! He's standing like a lil champion. He looks so good. Every day I thank God he's alive. It's just a miracle.
