It's been 3 months today that Highball has been a member of our family
and it's been quite the adventure so far! Highball arrived with every
rib and both hip bones visible through his skin. Finally, we've just
about got all his health issues resolved. He's visited the vet 4 times
since he's been here and we've been an additional two to drop off
"samples." I think he just likes to visit Milo, the resident black lab,
at the vet's office.
Highball was a little unsure of some of his new family members. The
horses scared the bejeezus out of him at first. He's still not too
happy when they run and buck but other than that he doesn't pay them
much attention anymore. Cheyenne, his older border collie sister, plays
with him but gets fed up with his antics before he does and she
definitely lets him know she's finished. Tia, the cat, is NOT impressed
that we brought this big clumsy dog into HER house but she tolerates him
for the most part. The bunnies could care less but Highball wants to
play with them SO bad! He definitely can't be left alone with them. I
can just see him pouncing and slapping one of them with a big front paw.
Highball has made a great addition to our family; he's so smart and so
entertaining. And that nose! You just gotta love that hound nose.
Well, that's all for now. We'll keep you informed of the antics of
Highball in the future.
Thank you so much for connecting us with this wonderful dog.
Sara, David, Highball and the gang
