UPDATE FROM NORTON'S FOSTER MOM:
“Norton is one of the most mellow Pekes I have ever fostered. He’s an older guy, maybe 10+, and now weights @15 pounds. He is blind but gets around quite well once he learns his route. He goes down my ramp wonderfully and slowly walks the back yard. He has learned how to tell if he’s close to the edge of the ramp and make the needed adjustment. He is on 3 different eye meds – drops and crème – and will be on those forever. He is very!! Cooperative when getting his eyes cared for. He is able to hear but has some trouble with the directional hearing. He was recently diagnosed with having a small bladder stone but is on a special diet for that. The vet is confident that the diet will help dissolve the stone. He’s very good about letting me know that he has to go out. He will walk towards the door and will give his ‘I have to go out’ whine. Then, he’ll stand there and wait for me. He’s always had a good appetite and eats well. He is on an OTC iron supplement as he was/is a bit anemic. The numbers are heading in a good direction J
As like most Pekes, he loves a good belly rub. He also loves having his ears rubbed – front and back. He also likes a soft back massage
