I picked up The Lord today from his temp foster mom and, he was sooooooooooo excited to see me! I also was with him!

I took a look over his eyes and, they look fine. I looked at his chin and feet and, yes, they are definitely not great. I also looked at the one fold his temp foster wanted me to check and, it is slightly infected. 

I told his temp foster mom that, my plan was to take him back for about 10 days, heal him up  and, then bring him back. Should he react again, then we know for sure that the carpet, perhaps even laundry detergent, fabric softener, and, I did not even ask if they use anything like Febreeze, could well be the problem. We will know for sure then, that we do not want to see him in an approved adoptive home that has any carpets and, would have to be careful about other products used around him. 

Per his Foster mom, he went to her healthy and, as I said back to her, this may help us figure out even further what type of home he CANNOT go to and, that she is not a failure! 

It shall be good to get him back on nothing even close to salt or sand either.

His last nail trim was January 24th before he went to his temp foster home and, he really needs his nails done every 2 weeks yet, with his raw feet, they are too painful. So, all the work we did to get his nails looking great, will just have to see slide a bit for now. 

I took him to KAH as I wanted to get an updated weight on him for he had dropped down to 19 kgs and, he was back up to 20 kgs, so giving him the extra 1.5 cups daily as his body fought these infections etc., has helped. He was 20.2 kgs the day he went to his temp foster home. 

I cannot stress enough about how I want to see him between 19.8 kgs and 20.5 kgs. He is not to become obese and, of course, we do not want him skinny. Lean and healthy! He is so fit and, looking like a Bulldog should, not what people' 'think' bulldogs should look like – rotund with stomachs protuding. 

Even per his Vet at KAH, that he is on Baytril and, that he is battling these infections, is a bit concerning. 

He has not had any incontinent issues since he was temp fostered as he is on the Baytril and that is wonderful news!!!
