We adopted Rex on the 21st of May. On that day, when we brought him home, he weighed in at 9 pounds. Now, today, not quite a month later, he has more than doubled in weight, weighing in at 19 pounds! Rex is finding that he is fitting in well and starting to figure out the pecking order. Rex loves to play, and plays with Charlie and to a lesser degree, Rosie. Charlie gets a little tired of the sharp puppy teeth on his neck and jowls though!
Rex has had his bumps along the road though. He had some sort of upper respiratory infection that he fought for about a week, but thankfully, we have one of the best VCA's in the world just a few minutes away, that is open 24 hours a day. We got him on a 10 day course of anti-biotics, and now is doing great!
We had hoped to take Rex on his first road trip this weekend, but because of Carol feeling sick her self, we were not able to hit the road. We will continue to keep you posted on how Rex is progressing as he grows up.
Safe travels all!
Eric, Carol, Rosie, Charlie and Rex
