Freddie stopped responding to Archie a couple days after he got settled in.
We took him to the vet, and she told us that he was eight to nine months old and severely undernourished.
Well, we got him fattened right up. In a few weeks he’s doubled his weight and he’s doing very well. We’re very pleased with his overall health but we are concerned about this persistent kennel cough that has continued even after a couple rounds of antibiotics and the inoculations.
The other thing we love about him is his huge personality, and how he plays with his toys all the time, and does everything he can to get you to play with him. It’s like he didn’t get any of that before he was rescued.
I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy and dealing well with this weather. Here in Tooele, we’ve got about 165% of typical annual snowfall, and a couple more inches tonight, apparently.
On another note, I am the Interim President of the American Federation of Government Employees newest local, #4016.
We’d been trying for years to get a union election at USDA OCIO, but we just kept hitting one wall after another. I’ll go into details later, but suffice it to say that we’re off to a new start, and we’ve had to hit the ground running.
I hope to be posting a little bit more around here in the future.
