WE went to the vet today for his heartworm test, and shot..his rabies and his distemper. So he is all officially an "owned" dog. I felt so sorry for him because even tho i gave him a full tablet of dramimine, he was so sick all the way there..he braces his legs like this is the worst thing he could ever do..and mile by mile he gets a bit greener. He was a gent to the end and managed to get sick only when we got out of the car. The vet gave him sedatives for the way home, but i don't think they made a bit of difference. I just came from mom's and he was still staggering around a bit. It is a good thing i live as close as i do...he is deffinately not a member of the packs on wheels club, but a sweeter boy doesn't exist..even the vet said he was mellow. oh i forgot...i told the vet i thought he had a bird dog chest and she said not only that but a bird dog head as well..at first i thought ??? then i thought of the rounded top of Vic's head in his bad dog pic..and compared it to Shaffer's pic when i first accepted him from logan and they are the same..the vet said coondog and birddog is what made a shaffer..at least as close as anyone can tell. She said he should weigh at least 60 lbs and he is 57 so we are getting closer. He looks so much better then he did when he was found. The vet wrote down 18 months old.
