Well Meatloaf seems alot like Meatball. I am still just reeling from the shape of him. He seems to remember excactly where he is at, even went on day one to the room that he crate was in, and put his head like down as if to say "can I take a nap" ..which he did, but he is now in the room with Woody and Virgil .
He still seems wondefully goofy and human oriented. he hasnt seemed to even care about the dogs here, but I am not putting anyone in contact without at least the baby gate up, for mine are all in a tizzy. Scooter seems bouncy.. Woody went from OH MY GAWD AN ALIEN DOG to OMG I AM LIVING IN FEAR (?) dont ask..its woody.. hes a wierdo.
Virgil ran up to his crate the other day (something I shouldnt really allow..it was a whoops) but they both just tapped noses and were like "hey" . and Virgil recalled to me.
I really do not have any idea yet how short his fuse for defense may be on dogs, and in this chaos right now its hard to tell. And too soon after such a big change and big fight from where he came from. I dont want any set up for failures with him as he has to be a bit on edge now.
But its a mess with this many dogs.. no one is getting the attention they want or need so insert alot of pawing, and whining, and barking .. omg.. its nuts here.
Frantic I have been trying to place someone somewhere even for a few days.. or weeks if I am lucky. Right now Scooter is packing her bag to go to a friends home ... lets hope The Scoot behaves and leaves her bark o matic bitch switch at home......
Have emailed our group and have posted on facebook and far and wide as have many friends..but no hits as of yet.
As for Meatball.. well he seems hungry on his new diet. I have not seen (knock on wood) even with mixing his food with Jacks Wellness any "Chronic" diahrea or "upset" stomach they said he was having. His stools seem fine ?
His face is healing, there are some pretty deep gashes, that might scar a bit on his ever so cute face ..but they all seem on the way to doing just that , healing.
HIs skin and fur will take a bit longer, he is on better foods, and fish oils and once his face is healed is definatly getting a good scrub bath.
His temperment seems just as goofy as ever. Since he is so familar here, he has met four people and my best way to describe him is if he could speak
" HEY! I have never met YOU .. YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND! I love you! " then he plops at their feet lovingly looking at their faces.
I have taken a few pictures, its been a bit busy between shuffling and falling of darkness..but here shows a bit how bloated he has become. Knowing Erins Doc was simlilar definatly gives me hope that we can refind the cute and little meatball in here somewhere...
Dont be fooled those are muscles you see but fat rolls, his legs and shoulders have NO muscle, which I think is leading
to his wierd waddling walk, that and his now bad joints ... :0 (
"youre my best friend" Face
dark but you can see he still sports that cute lil smile
