But now he is a legal and healthy pet. My sister is really campaigning for us to keep this dog. I don't think it will happen, but if it does then that would be fine. My little man is slowly adapting to having Austen around and they have begun to have spurts of real play-time in the mornings. I think this is really good for my Satchmo. He was getting so old and crotchety. Now he at least is being more active.
Anyway, here are some pictures of Austen in his lovely collar (that lasted about as long as it took to take the pictures). He obviously hates it and the look on his face says, "Hurry up and take the picture so I can pull this thing off me!"
