Handsome George, posing for his glamour shot. George has had his tongue out since he arrived here 8 years ago. 😳💕 It’s just how he is.

We estimate he is about 14 years old now, but still going strong. He came from Prince George’s County Animal Control, who had seized him in a cruelty case. It took him a while to trust people but now he does. He mostly hangs out with Hazel the pig, but waves a good morning to ya to Waldo, also.

The gatekeepers: Stop! To enter this barn you must answer the three questions!
Me: And if I don’t?
Them: We shall banish you to a white-carpeted condominium 😡
Me: Noooo! Ok. What are the questions?

GREAT NEWS!

Yesterday Gilbert had his monthly checkup at New Bolton Center and they declared him to be A-OK. His fibrinogen levels are now normal and while the radiograph of his sternum is not 100% normal, they said it's as normal as it's ever going to be considering his initial prognosis, and that it was so significantly improved that they would not need to see him again. Oh my, he's come a long way!

AND ... when he went to the hospital the first time, he weighed 40 pounds. At the last visit he was 80. Now he is a whopping 110 pounds!!!
