Update on LB

Everyone must have crossed their fingers because so far so good with LB. He managed to leave the catheter in a little over 24 hours.....a miracle in itself! He stayed at Laurie's Monday and Tuesday so she could keep a close eye on him. By Tuesday night he was still peeing on his own, eating and drinking normally and tearing the crate apart trying to get out! Time to come home.
So Wednesday morning he came back here and we decided to kill 2 birds with one stone.....we put him in the small pen and moved Andy, Gibby and Ringo in with him no more fights between Vin and Andy and LB has some company again!
He's still feeling great.....he thoroughly enjoyed biting me last night when I gave him his antibiotics! It was worth it though because he was mad enough at me to pee when I grabbed him so the plumbing is still working! LOL
He's not out of the woods yet, but the glass is half full again....
Sunday we are all going to try to get together and move a large 20 x20 kennel Laurie has stored at her house over here in the hopes of getting it set up eventually so we can move the boys out of the small pen. It's OK for now, but they are going to need more room than that for the winter.


  1. Oh- I am so glad to read this! Keeping him in my prayers that it continues to go well ♥

  2. Merry Christmas, Deanna & I'm happy he is doing better. I hope he continues to improve.

  3. Very relieved to hear the little guy is doing better. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that he makes a complete recovery!
