The Hunger

Not a day goes by that we don't marvel at what Tinker has accomplished. People pay us compliments for taking such good care of him, etc., but we both know that this was all Tinker's doing. If not for his spirit and determination, he would not be where he is today. Every time I walk him, I am struck by the difference between his current healthy physical condition and my memory of how he was at this time last year.

We took some videos yesterday to show his progress. The first video will make you think he never eats...LOL! Virginia and Tinker complement each other very well. Virginia loves the car, Tinker hates it. Virginia doesn't like her humans not being home, Tinker is okay with it. And, Virginia is completely calm during food preperation, whereas Tinker LOSES HIS MIND. While the fact that he is able to jump is remarkable, it is also frightening and we discourage him from doing it as we don't want a repeat of his injury.

The second video demonstrates Tinker's gait from a side angle. It is short and the quality is not terrific- unfortunately he walks into shadow. We'll shoot and post a better one when the warmer weather returns...
