12/23/12: Thomas crossed the Rainbow Bridge just hours after
arriving at his forever home. So tragic for all.
10/27/12: Thomas had the growths removed and his drooling is now
almost gone. He doe not seem to be in any pain from the
procedure and is thoroughly enjoying all the home cooked soft food.
He will be back on kibble in about 2 weeks.
8/22/12: Thomas is a sweet old fella who would really like a
family to call his own for the years he has left. He does have
problems, but then we all develop limitations when we get old.
He walks a little slow. Sometimes he gets a little confused
where the door is. He has vision problems. The nerves
that send the message from one eye to the other don't work right so
sometimes it is too bright in a room for the one eye or too dark for
the other. Soft lighting and night lights are the solution.
If we need sunglasses, then his walk needs to wait until it is less
Yes, Thomas will be like caring for the elderly, but he will give
you the love you felt when your grandma hugged you. He will
make you feel better when it seems the rest of the world has turned
it's back on you. You will know you are appreciated for every
kind word and act, for every belly rub and hug.
