jose is the horribly abused senior i adopted about a month ago. he's more than 11 years old and has lots of pain due to herniated disks, osteoarthritis, subluxating patellas and discospondylitis. but boy, does he have spirit!! he joins timmy, my first rescued chi that i adopted a year ago.

thanks everyone. and thanks for asking about his health susan! it seems like we're getting a routine here a bit. i've gotten smart enough (ha!) to figure out what jose's favorite foods are. right now he's on prednisalone, gabapentin and clavamox. he gets fish oil, nupro joint support and pumpkin as additional support. i'm still giving him massages with coconut oil 2x aday - and in case i forget, he's figured out how to remind me. i really think the coconut oil is helping his coat - it was really rough and coarse, but is now starting to soften up.

jose's personality is popping through. he LOVES his morning walks. and for an old man with terrible arthritis he hops/walks faster than i do!! and if i'm too slow fixing his meds and meals he has a croaky but LOUD bark to encourage me!

I work hard to make sure they each get their "mommy" time for cuddles, and they are warming up to each other pretty well. all in all, there are three happy campers here!!!
