From Joe's new owner:
I just wanted to fill you in on what has been happening in my new life. My name is now Bender aka Ben. The walks take me to beautiful parts of town. Today, I saw Dr. Pat. She was very nice to me. I didn't like her touching my feet. She suggested a bath once a week with medicated shampoo. This is to see if it will help my dry skin and the several growths on my back. She thought I was a good boy. She gave me 2 treats. I'm going back to see her in a couple of weeks...just to see how I'm doing. My humans need to get my weight down. I weighed in at 40.5 lbs.
My female human lets me get on the sofa for a snuggle and snooze. I have learned that I need to be invited and can't just jump up whenever I want. My humans keep telling me how lucky there were to find me. I think we were all lucky.
Attached is a picture of me and my brother Oliver. We walk together every day, otherwise we just ignore each other.
ps.....We are almost out of toys. I've chewed mine and Oliver's to bits. I think it is okay because when the Humans clean up the mess I get petted, rubbed and hugged.
