Well, I finally got my little guy into the vet today and he did GREAT! He was so well-behaved and everyone accosted us to pet him. He has no problems and the vet even said his knees feel perfect. He got a rabies shot and I brought home the heartworm stuff and a free sample of that flea/tick stuff. He weighs 19 pounds, the vet thought that was fine-I bet he weighed more when he first got here. I wouldn't mind seeing him lose 1 or 2 more..he feels heavy to me. Anyway..he's pooped...hates the car...and very tired out from the whole ordeal I'm sure.
