In this corner, weighing in at 5 lbs: Hershey! And in this corner, weighing in at 5 lbs 8 oz: Butterscotch! Last night the boys were running around together a lot. They weren’t fighting, but maybe playing? Or trying to establish dominance? When Charlie chases Bella she just runs somewhere to hide. And that’s why she’s the boss.

The vet saw Bella walk around a little, and then took x-rays. She was surprised that Bell was so sensitive to just a dislocation so she did another x-ray of her shoulders. They had to gas her. Poor girl! Better than a shot though. Turns out, nothing is wrong with her shoulders. She’s just very sensitive. It’s still healing, but she needs more “cage rest”. That’s hard to do with her and Charlie. They’re both highly intelligent and very determined. My dad says she needs protein to help her heal, so more pellets an alfalfa for her. She’s been losing weight too, so that should help make up for it (not that she’s skinny or anything!)

Whitney had her bottom cleaned, and I’m sure was less than thrilled. They said she was a very spirited girl! Is there any other kind? She was glad to be back with her Alfie, as Bella was glad to be with her Charlie.
