FoG welcomes another guest

Starsky is pretty skinny and has some dental issues. His back legs are shaky, and he's slow in standing up and walking. But he appears to be in good spirits, happy to interact with his kennel mate, Handsome, and his human friends. Michelle gave him a standard FoG meal of kibble, rice and canned food, and he happily ate it up. He tried to eat a Milk Bone biscuit but couldn't break it up. So Michelle broke it into tiny pieces for him, and he ate that eagerly.
The plan is to allow Starsky to get used to his new surroundings for a couple of days and see if he can put on a couple or three pounds and build up some strength. Eventually, he'll get to meet Dr. Ansara for a checkup and to see if anything can be done to help his teeth. Mostly, Starsky is in a play-it-by-ear situation -- just going day-by-day for awhile to figure out what might be the best thing to do for him.
