February 2010 Update: Sixpence is doing well and thankfully, it’s been a long time now that he has had any problems. According to his foster mother, he is getting very bossy, which is always a good sign. He barks for hugs, pats and just to get attention. He loves the fact that he is now allowed to have a few snacks a day. He has started a special diet food which will help his joints. Sometimes, his foster mother gives him some of it as a snack and 6P doesn’t disappoint – he gobbles it down. He has also begun to have some vegetables with his dinner and seems to enjoy them. His mother lovingly steams the vegetables so that they are soft. He has not experienced any discomfort in the cold weather or even the snow. All in all, and with fingers crossed, he’s happy, healthy, and on top of the world this year!
March 2010 Update: Sixpence and his family are doing well and anxiously awaiting the warmer weather. They will be so glad when the days are longer and they can spend more time looking out their beloved window. One morning they enjoyed watching outside as a cat walked very carefully on the top of their fence and then turned and walked down the top of their gate. The cat walked so slowly and so carefully it provided much amusement for Sixpence. They were certain the cat was avoiding the deep snow on the ground, but no, when the cat was ready he just hopped off and walked through the snow like it wasn’t even there! The squirrels are still fun to watch. They feed them and the winter birds to attract them to their spot by window where Sixpence is often found gazing in delight.
April 2010 Update: Since his foster mother insists on his safety, Sixpence received a brand new playpen to sleep in. His old playpen was worn out with holes in the sides. Now, he has a lovely green playpen with elephants along the top rim. His foster mother worried a little about the new playpen because Sixpence gets easily stressed and she did not know if he would adjust to a new “bed”, but it turned out not to be a problem. He couldn’t be happier and he even looks quite pleased with his nice new digs! Now that the weather is getting warmer and spring is just around the corner, Sixpence is very happy (and safer, too)!
