    Cute! He's sticking his tongue out. LOL! What is his story Eddie? I'm glad that he found a home with you and Linda.

    Eddie's a man of few words sometimes.....*sigh*.

    We got TK on July 3rd from Rescue Me Yorkie Rescue. He's turning 9 in a week or so and weighs just under 7 pounds. He and his son were surrendered by a family in the NJ/NY area. He is a very sweet little boy who, it turns out, has some medical issues. We got him home and saw that he drinks way more than normal; kind of like Mary Jane......but I digress. I spoke with the people who gave him up and found that he and his son "got into something" five years ago and he almost died from what he ate. It looks like there was some kidney damage from that incident and it's rearing its ugly head again. He's had a bunch of tests that have been inconclusive. He's having an ultrasound of the belly tomorrow. Hopefully this will help tell us what's going on.

    He loves his new backyard and sleeping in bed and getting beaten up by Scootie, who's all of 4 pounds...ok, not so much the beaten up part but he tolerates it. I can't wait until his coat grows in so he really looks like a Yorkie!!

    Please define "normal".

    I hope all goes well for TK. You are good folk for giving him another chance.
