update on Duffy, the border collie who cheated death this week
To those who so graciously commiserated with me just a couple of nights ago when Duffy seemed to be near death.

Duffy rallied. He isn't 100%, but is about 80% and improving I hope. He knows me, he obeys most commands, he can walk steadily, he is eating and drinking and managing bodily functions. And when I came home today he wagged his tail!

So the cats are probably complaining to themselves. He's not dead yet!

So glad to hear that, I was hesitant to look at the other thread. Sally, our border collie, my DH and I have been hoping he would feel better! More good health vibes to Duffy!

8. he keeps scaring himself
He'll bump into something like the water dish and be really startled. And if there's a loud noise like a door shutting he'll cry and cower. So obviously he's not 100%. I had the foresight to take the coffee grinder in the other room to use it this morning. Ha!
