Considering the nature of our trip, I thought it was very appropriate to take a picture of this:
The quantity of Walker's medications is second only to my Dad's.
Aside from being very skinny and an abrasion on his nose (I don't know how that happened), our Walker is back!
I realize his body has been through the wringer and he needs a lot of R & R in order to achieve a clean bill of health. However, he hasn't had his daily dose of 60 mg. of Prozac (for idiopathic fear/spookiness) in nine days. His behavior is exactly like it was before he got sick, if not improved. We'll talk to the vet in about a week about the necessity of continuing it. Maybe he doesn't need it anymore?

When Walker got sick, we took him to the vet we have used for years. His condition worsened. With the help and support of our SEGA friends, we are fortunate to be able to get Walker in the hands of vet who cared about him and who had the experience to help him.
That's one of the many benefits of the greyhound community - people who reach out to offer suggestions, insight and support. Tonight we are celebrating Walker's homecoming and our friends who helped make his homecoming possible.
