Skinny Pupdate #4

Gramdmom Pat, Malcom from KTRE9, Skinny, and Aunty Karen

Skinny had his (likely first) 15 minutes of fame last night!  I saw the interview in a live stream, but there is no link to it that I know of. If I find a way to post it here, I will.

Aunty K did an awesome job of getting the word out about taking care of your pups and doing the spay/neuter thing.  There was some video of Skinny in action and it was nice to see that he does move around pretty well, albeit on three legs right now.  He still holds his broken leg up.  Aunty K has never really posted any full body shots ... he is a TALL DRINK OF WATER (maybe his real name should be Stilts?) but he is all bones.  Really.  All bones.  All skin.  No hair for the most part. Sad to see, but when you see him moving around and seethe sparkle in those eyes, you get a glimpse into the future and just know that he is going to be OK!

Aunty K said in the interview that when she went to get him, Skinny was curled up behind a tire.  She got out of the car and started talking to him and he crawled, crawled, over to her.  To me and mom It sounded as if he knew if he could just make it over to her he would hit the jackpot. 

Aunty K did say that Skinny is starting to be a bit more active which is a NO NO until his leg gets better.  He is supposed to be staying pretty still.  We may need to pick up the pace on POTP for Aunty Karen -- to give her patience as she tries to deal with a pup who needs to be still but is starting to feel better so he wants to be active!!!  Oh, boy!

Here is what Skinny posted on Aunty Karen's facebook page yesterday:

Skinny here after a busy day with my new friend Malcolm J. Hornsby. Great guy! Aggie too!! He wanted to talk to me about my story so mom and I did an interview which will air tonight on KTRE 9 lufkin nacogdoches news at 10:00. I'm kinda getting into this media thing and have discovered Apps. KTRE 9 has one that streams live! Cool. Hope my wrinkles don't look too bad. Cause I'm doing better everyday. I even caught myself running and playing with Pippa today. And I'm not suppose to do that but I'm cheeky like that. Mom was not pleased. But she forgave me. I've been eating good, sleeping well and getting lots of quiet time with family. Life is getting better all the time. Signing off to take a snooze before my debut! Sure hope they got my good side! Signed, skinny pup enjoying 15 minutes of fame!
