Gumbo's Back! Evening UPDATE

Gumbo came home from the vet today, perky and playful.
We are pretty happy with that outcome!

Gumbo and I want to thank you for all the good wishes and pup prayers.
He came home with a couple of meds to finish off and a need to put on weight after a tough week in which he hardly ate anything solid.
He looks so puny next to Bear who seems to have grown exponentially during the same week.

He's already dropped in on the chickens and warned them that he's back and they had better toe the line.
You can see his shaved IV arm in the picture above ... he tells everybody he got that scar in a knife fight in a bar, but we know better.

Things are back to double puppy insanity around here ... much to our relief.

Now to fatten him up!

YAY GUMBO! I wonder if he might not have been sick for a while- hence his status as runt of the litter. I'm very glad to hear that he's home and better.

So glad to hear the news. Can't wait to hear of his exploits. I bet he will be the instigator and Bear will be the fall guy. Who me? I'm the little one, the one who just escaped death. It was the big guy who did it. Go yell at him. Heh, heh, heh.

I'm so happy Gumbo is home and recovering from his *bar fight*. He looks really good too, but boy does Bear look big compared to him!
