Hi Everyone!

Rath came to us on Tuesday and his name was swiftly changed to Solomon/Sol for short! So we have a queen Sheeba and a King Solomon in the house! :D He doesn't know it yet but I think he'll take to it over time, we tried all the syllables and sounds to see if he responded to something but we got no response from our alphabet and sound singing on Tuesday ;)

As Kathy said he is only 24kg at the moment :( :( :( its shocking to rub him, his fur is disguising the extent of how skinny he is, hes skin and bone, so much so his temples/area around the eyes and skull are sunk in his head :( :evil: His coat is so dry that when you rub and cuddle him your covered in a powder of skin :roll: :oops: gross I know but it will all be sorted soon and in the time being we have the hoover set up beside his den :) His hair came out in chunks yesterday during a groom, also had to get the scissors to a few matts and then a bath! Soooo he is now a fluff ball :D He didn't like/know how to use the stairs and had to be coaxed up and down poor pet!

Hes a bit over enthusiastic when it comes to food understandably and will grab it from you as quick as he can but were working on the que "Gentle" but in turn we've learned his teeth are in great shape :oops: :lol:

Him and Sheebs are getting along grand she likes to lay near his baby gate and just stare at him! He isn't bothered by her at all his only interest is food at the mo; so much so he when he walks by the GIANT bag (how did you lift that Kathy???) he pops his head in for a quick bite before walks :lol: They've had their walks together and wanders around the house and garden but were keeping them mostly separate until Sheebs relaxes and stops shoving her nose in his ear for an oddly long amount of time :roll:

Ill try get some better pics of him up soon!

Had our first proper tail wag this morning too :D

Great name for a poor soul, he will grow into it. Can't wait to see him in his full glory. Do you think Sheeba is whispering to him that he is now safe and will be cared for? Will be following your new foster dog and have everything crossed that he gets to full health and well-being in the next few weeks. Poor boy.

Sol what a lucky boy you are now ..... you are safe, you'll be fed regularly, you'll get to go on walks, you have a playmate, you have a foster family and most importantly you will experience LOVE.

You have your own band of followers now in D.I.D who will wait patiently for your every instalment!

Sol has been with us a week and a half now and he is a character!! Acts much younger than 6/7 and more like a cat than a dog at the moment :? :lol:

He LOVES any attention and will push his head under your hand for cuddles or crawl under or around your legs (like a cat) and push up against us for reassurance and rubs! He really is just a big baby! and mouths at us like a puppy!

He is a bit unsure of Sheebs attempts to play and just any attention from her really but hopefully after a few more weeks he wont come hiding behind us when shes sniffing him (tail wags the whole time so fingers crossed).

He is still skin and bone but a lot less flaky! He loves his grub so its just a time thing until hes a puddin'er and he is getting much better with our "gentle" que and will sit and wait for food now until told to "go eat" - he drools like a running tap for the whole sit/stay 5 seconds that he has to wait! :lol:

My minds gone blank so I will report back soon with more! :oops:

A few more pics! We think he has really big ears! But maybe it just looks that way because he is so slim!

:lol: Hi everyone!! Solly here!

Today was a big day according to my people here! Wait for it youll be underwhelmed but they seem happy...i stayed lying down in the sitting room twice today while they got up and went to the kitchen! I know 8-) talk about over reacting but hey what ever makes them happy! I was just really tired!

They also get really excited when i go do my business in the garden just before bedtime ;)

Ill up date some more of their weird over reactions soon!

Ps ive started head butting sheebs hoping she'll play but she prefers to use her paws :? Its very confusing but we'll figure it out!
