His eyes were HIS eyes. Alert, so happy to see us, curious. Amina said he looked MUCH better than yesterday. He purred as soon as they brought him out to us and the clinician said he's such a sweetie--that they all like him.
He perked up whenever another dog entered the clinic. Until this happened, he'd never even seen a dog! He had always wanted to escape from our apartment, to explore what's out there... Sometimes it was hard to physically restrain him! And now that he gets to hear and see all these other animals, all he can do is lift his head to check them out. Still, though... His spark is there.
The problem is that he still can't pee. Tomorrow they're going to do blood tests to check his kidney function. If the results show improvement, he'll have a good prognosis. If there isn't any, then things look much bleaker.
Chris and the girls get back tomorrow; I'll need to break the news to them then. The vet said it would be good if we could bring the girls to visit him in the early afternoon and evening; he perks up when he sees family.
