Stanley is improving

Stanley's skin has almost all healed up. No fur growing back yet, but we now have nice, healthy pink skin, not red and sore.

Picking him up tonight, I think he may have gained back a bit of weight. He seemed a bit heavier to lift tonight. I shall have to pass by the vet's office next week to weigh Stanley. His belly band seems a bit tighter to fasten up as well. All that good hamburger and rice are working their magic. Now for my next trick ...... weaning Stanley off home-cooked meals and back onto dog food.

His blood test results came back and everything is within normal results for a 13 year old dog. I think he may have just been missing his old family and sad/confused about his time at the shelter. At least the worry of kidney or liver issues is behind us and we can focus now on helping Stanley to settle into our little family.

He has perked up enough to enjoy some sunshine and a couple of "bathing beauties".

So, so cute! I love soaking up the sun too. My papa will joke though and say, "I smell sausage cooking!" He thinks he's funny.
