Yes, Joey received another package today. He received the X-pen, courtesy of Greyhound Companions of Missouri. (Yes, we do have a WONDERFUL group. They are making sure that Joey gets the best medical care, plus everything else that makes taking care of him as easy as possible.) He will use it and then it will be saved for the next greyhound that needs it. Mama thinks he will like it. It's bigger than it looks in the pictures and no, I did not want to test it out. Mama said she will probably put a big, thick quilt in there instead of a bed. She put the bed in to check out the size, since I didn't want to do it.
We can make it into various shapes as you can see. It has a gate that makes it easy to get in and out. Mama told me that if we need it to be bigger, we can use one of our walls as a wall for it and that will make it bigger. Confused? Me, too. I need to see that in action. It's not like we want Joey to have too much room though. He can't be having a party in there.
Mama received a Joey update and it's good. He's eating, drinking and being a good boy. They put a soft cast on his foot today and they may put a harder cast on Tuesday. We will just have to wait and see on that. We were told he would not have a cast, but we think it might be for the best. Mama has been nervous about him getting hurt without a cast. We still don't have a firm date as to when he's coming home. We think it will be Wednesday or Thursday, but it just depends on how well he is doing. He's going to be surprised by all the new things that have arrived for him.
