As with anyone who gets old I'm dealing with a few medical issues but nothing that we can't deal with together.  I will need to be on a special food (SO) for bladder stones. I have some issues going on with my back but, other than wobbly back legs, it really doesn't slow me down. I can chase away all the critters that come near the backyard. I enjoy being a mighty hunter. Those squirrels go flying when I chase them but, so far I haven't been able to climb the trees after them. I love to run around the yard with my foster fur buddies. I really love the doggy door so I can go in and out. When I come in I love to get lots of attention and petting. I love to curl up in my foster mom's lap and have her tell me how handsome I am and that I'm her sweetheart. She tells me that a special family will be lucky to have me join their family.
