Sorry that it's taken me so long to answer, but I've been busy with Sir Hercules. We've been to the vet, gotten our stitches out, and been bonding. First off, we spent the first three days and nights throwing up the most godawful things you can imagine. I'm not sure how or where, but he had eaten garbage (most things weren't identifiable, and the ones that were were horrible!) So I slept on the floor with him so he wouldn't get upset and try to hide every time he made a mess. We're past that, he's eaten chicken and rice to try to finish calming down his tummy. The poor little guy, he's had quite a time. Of course, all the throwing up did nasty things to his stitches. That is completely healed now.
I have to say, he is the perfect gentleman. He is completely housetrained, sleeps on my feet in the bed under the covers, does everything that Princess tells him to do and chases chipmunks and squirrels in the yard. He obviously had a very loving home at some time in his life. He was sent to me I'm sure as we are best buddies now. Thank you so much for the work that you do with the dogs and saving him for me. I'll write every so often and keep you updated. By the way, he is extremely intelligent also.
