When I read Toby found a tamale, my first thought was that it was some sort of Texas wildlife I never heard of ...sorry you're on poop watch.

Yeah, I think the old gang (HRH Toby, Barkley, Tucker and Copper) and channeling Toby for membership in a few years. At least Barkley did things that didn't make him ill- I can handle opening doors, opening car windows and other mischievous non-food related capers.

Steve, my first thought yesterday was it was a really ripe dead squirrel. It's that time of year here when the squirrels play chicken with cars-- we avoided a dead bird yesterday and this morning we avoided a dead squirrel. I just never thought a tamale would be hiding in leaves and a visually impaired dog walking on lead by my side could grab and go like that!

We just gave him a bath and he looks like a tamale--such a skinny boy! Toby Tamale it is!

Well, we are now at soft serve status, but it's the right color. I"m trusting the antibiotics are doing their magic. He feels pretty good this afternoon and even spent a few minutes killing his stuffie.

Just catching up on all of Toby's exciting days.... Yea!!! I'm so glad to hear about his eyes! Oh my, about the tamale...he's got a good nose. Hope the meds clear it up fast. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. I know how you worry...

I love name Toby but it's taken, we have a lab in a family with that name.
