One year ago today Chopper joined us. It hasn't been an easy year in many respects. Chopper had a lot of allergies and illnes and has required a lot of care. He is still a daily medical and (medical bill) challenge but he is much healthier than he was. His destructive behavior has subsided some and he does much better now when left "alone". We lost Carol's mom in August 2006 and added Ivy to our family. I think that's helped him some, having a little buddy. He is very attached to Ivy. When we first got him he followed me to every room every time I moved and wouldn't go outside unless someone went with him. He has gained confidence and now often spends time in another room and can even manage to lay still when I leave a room. So his improvement has been remarkable. He is about to endure his next challenge as I get ready to return to "going" to work. We expect that he will rise to this challenge as he has the other challenges this past year. "Welcome home boy."
