My computer crashed on Thursday, which was just super... So, I've been having a fun time trying to put things back where they go after the computer guy (http://www.facebook.com/agilecomputer or
http://www.agilecomputerservice.com) returned it to me. I'm having such a fun time that apparently, I'm missing a few things and things that worked right on Wednesday don't work right today and can't figure out just what that is...
So, enough about my darling computer. Let's talk Tad, shall we?
He's doing amazing. He really is. I heard his first bark on Tuesday, and this boy is definitely a hound dog! Here's a little video with his bark...and of course, him finding money on the ground for me!
Friday evening as I was putting Tad back into Isolation, he bumped the puppy gate and it fell over and cut his foot. Poor thing; he is definitely accident prone. :/
Here he is with his bandage...that he liked to rub his face on and such.
Tad has had a TON of support from his nearly 3,000 fans. We post up the cards, letters, and pictures in Isolation so he is constantly reminded just how many are rooting for him.
His new bed from The Weaver's came in, and he LOVES it. He also has gotten many lovely blankets!
Including his Milty Blanket! This picture was taken on Friday...he looks AMAZING.
I decided to take him home for the weekend. We're not sure how long he's contagious...some say 3-5 days after treatment and then he's no longer contagious...and some other's say they're always contagious. Blah.
I'll take my chances.
He's sleeping in the bathroom, though I have let him wander around the house a bit. He has this fear of getting out of the car, I think because my Tahoe is so high he doesn't know his own strengths yet. I have a feeling that he walks funny on his back legs because he's lacking so much muscle mass. Most dogs have a nice formed muscle, Tad has flab. It's becoming quite a challenge to get him to go back into the bathroom after letting him out...he's a pretty smart fella. But, the way to his heart is still with food right now. So, that does the trick.
On Monday, he'll get another skin scraping. He'll also get his second Sarcoptic Mange treatment (Frontline) as well as getting him some more antibiotics.
Thanks for the support...I'm backed up on videos, but I'll definitely get some up soon. :)
