All of his vitals were good, so the vet said to watch him closely that night. We did, and he was back to normal by morning. He had his third shot and has been very subdued. On night two, he woke us up because he was rubbing against our bed and pacing. We thought he needed to go out, but it turned out he'd already done his business inside--he must have been uncomfortable! We noticed that he has hives this morning and have been watching him--and scratching him all day. Poor guy. His breathing and apetite are normal, so we're waiting to call the vet tomorrow. I'm not sure he can take Benadryl just three days after the immiticide shots, so we've just tried to keep him as comfortable as possible.

    27 more days and Murray should be healthy again. We're counting down.
    How is Murray doing today? I hope he's much better--sweet little guy! Don't you just want to strangle the people who didn't give him meds before you got him!

    Murray is doing very well! He has all of his energy back and can't understand why we won't let him play or jump around. We need to keep him quiet and controlled for 3 more weeks. I can't wait for him to have a clean bill of health and run around the yard again! Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes!
