Guest Tiptons_Mom Posted February 13, 2012 Share Posted February 13, 2012 Duncan (Wv's Jerome) came home to us on Thursday. For those who don't know the story we adopted Tipton back in December, and when his SA was not getting any better I decided that he was just one of those hounds that needed another hound. On January 2nd we took Tipton back to GAA where he picked Duncan to be his housemate. They got along very well and the kids and I fell in love with him as well. The following week he was to go to the vet and they found that he had Babesisios and he was going to need treatment. We were told that he would need to be given two pretty nasty injections two weeks apart and that we would need to wait for about 6 weeks for him to come home. Well, he did great with his treatments and the vet, GAA and I all agreed that Duncan would be able to come home a little earlier than expected to recover from this mess. He will go to be fixed in a few weeks when he has gotten some of his strength back. The boys get along great, they have even been seen sleeping with their heads on one another. They are still both muzzled for the most part and that will be until we get Duncan to realize that the cats are not to be eaten (This really needs some work) We are so excited to have both boys here, they are two totally different personalities, yet both so sweet. As for Tipton's SA, it has not gone completely, but there has been a huge improvement with the addition of Duncan, and I have hopes that this will continue to lessen with time. And now for the pics.
