Matthias has gained almost 5 pounds in the 6 days he has been on our care, and discovered that food bowls are OK, dog beds are good, and eating is great, absolutory great! He has come out of his shell very nicely and starting to run and play. It looks like he walks on his ankles, and we think that is because his leg tendons are weak from malnutrition.
We headed to work together today, and were softly greeted in the office by a new, very scared dog named Clint. Shy Dog Clint arrived a few days ago, and has stayed huddled in the corner of the office ever since. He tucks his front legs up underneath to make himself as small as possible, and hopes none of us notices him. He only eats when he is alone, but this morning he had uncurled himself and seemed a little more relaxed on a big new bed. I set Matthias down, noses touched, Matthias climbed into the bed next to him, and it was there they stayed together for a few hours.
