What a difference a week can make. Since last Sunday when we played monkey-in-the-middle with Toby, we have been playing tag or ball each day and faithfully walking him with the Gentle Leader we got from our vet. It has made a tremendous difference in him and today for the best part of the day he has had the run of the house without going crazy and eating it! I think we have turned a corner. Our vet keeps telling me, "Don't give up on him Elaine, I think he's gonna be a super guy, just needs to grow some." I hope she is right because when he is being good he is so sweet.
I bought a snail to help clean the fish tank and he scared me to death the other day. The top to the tank was up and he crawled right out, crawled around on the counter for a while and fell to the floor. Toby found him and was playing toss up! Luckily he has a really gentle mouth and didn't bite him. I picked him up and put him back in the tank thinking for sure he was dead. He never moved for about 6 hours and then in the evening he started to climb the tank again. Praise the Lord, Frank is alive!! We are very, very careful to keep the lid down now for our Houdini.
