    Ronny the dumpster diver!

    Since we have been together Ronny has always wanted to stop at a pile of junk on the side of the road just in case there is something in there he can use. To me junk is junk and you leave it where it is. To him it's a treasure waiting to be found. Yesterday we were headed out to do some...

    Update on Copper bolus

    It's been two weeks since I gave Rascal a copper bolus. I said that his coat seemed softer than it had been and now I see today that the pigment of his fur is beginning to come back to the soft brown it should be instead of the bleached out white. It's more prevalent on his face (cheeks) and...
