Well, today is a big day. Today we have officially become involved in the rescue group from whom we got Ren.
We picked up a rescue corgi from a gentleman who had flown him from Albuquerque to Las Cruces. His name is Fred and he will be staying with us for a while. The gentleman who flew him down expressed some intrest in adopting him. Hopefully things will work out. Until then, he will be residing with our pack.
He is a nice, older corgi gentelmen who seems to be quite well mannered. He gets along well with the rest of our pack and with our cats. It was stated that he had a problem with peeing in the house, but we haven't seen that yet. We're keeping an eye on him. He does seem to get a bit anxious from time to time, but that is to be expected in a new place with a new pack. I spent some time brushing him and he was grateful. He doesn't mind being handled. One can manipulate all of his feet and touch his flanks, tail, and ears. (I always check to see if one can touch a dog's flanks. I don't know how common it is, but, many of our dogs at work intensely dislike having their flanks touched.)
We were also told that he was on prednisone for an ear infection. It seems a bit odd to me that prednisone was used. The only thing I can think of is perhaps to combat swelling. We have an apointment with a vet next week to get him set health wise.
I must say, I'm somewhat nervous. I'm afraid I get attached to our critters. I'm worried that I'll get attached to Fred as well. Hopefully, things will work out for the best.
Well, I'm off for now. I have to see what is being barked at, then start getting ready for work.
