Sponsor Animal Update: Alfredo
4th Quarter 2012
Alfredo has gotten accustomed to his new bed being right up against the bed of Marissa, Alfredo’s adopted mother. They sleep side by side and occasionally she will hear his soft barks as he is dreaming. He is very considerate of human sleep habits. He will nap and groom himself through the night, and he waits patiently for the slightest sign of waking up in the morning. Then he will jump on the bed, snuggle, and love for a while. Recently the family moved into a new apartment. Alfredo adjusted very quickly, making friends on the block and enjoying the new smells of a new neighborhood. He is enjoying the cooler weather, taking the time to sniff each leaf that moves in the breeze. He just got a new haircut, and then it was off to visit Dr. Verdino at the Alex Lewyt Medical Center at Animal League America. He got a clean bill of health! His energy has been great and there are no problems with Alf taking his medication. He hasn’t had any seizures since December 2011. He lost a little weight, so the family has been a little more liberal with his treats. One very kind sponsor sent him treats of salmon and sweet potatoes, which he loves. He also likes bananas, zucchini and most other fruits and vegetables.
