Sluggo update

My apologies to readers who'd been seeking an update on the condition of Sluggo, the crippled bulldog who had the good fortune to be dumped on some loving animal rescuers in Jacksonville.

The website has a full update on his condition, which apparently isn't fixable by surgery. But a wheeled cart is on order to prop up his broken front end.

Contributions of some $2,000 from people who read here of Sluggo's plight should be enough to cover the vet bills so far, the cart and future medical attention.

Thanks to everyone and, again, I'm sorry that I missed the vet report during my week off.

I'm told Sluggo is a resilient, playful and wonderful companion. His future is cloudy, but a good deal brighter than it was several weeks ago.
