|I find if I do that he will just retreat further into his hiding place even if I offer a favorite treat no amount of encouragement will persuade him, even if I manage to retrieve him he will run straight back and remain there until he's satisfied it's all over.
We've had hundreds of aftershocks since the big one on March 11, perhaps he has the good sense to get under cover! He senses the sound as much as 5 minutes before the shocks arrive, prior to march 11 we had no real problem with him other than his disability. His right front foot is twisted outward and there is a considerable muscle weakness in the leg, as result the left leg over time has bowed to compensate the resultant shortening of the right leg, he walks in what looks a wedge shape with his shoulder below his hip. Having said all that other than when walking outside he seems to have little or no problems with it, walking outside the trouble is simply he walks on what would be his wrist, which of course becomes sore very quickly.
Fortune favors the brave.
Tickling is no laughing matter.
